Goofs

The Flodders and all their working-class friends have accents from the Dutch Randstad area, which is known for its extremely flat landscape. Yet we clearly see some hills in Zonnedael. The architecture of the inner city is also clearly from a different region. See more »

Who to laugh about?
31 January 2018 | by See all my reviews

Well, at first you are astonished and laugh about the Flodder-Family. But if the movie continues you will see, that the freaks on this story are not the Family. It may be the truth that, to identify freaks positively, you have to confront them with other freaks.

Works still after 32 years. One of my favourite movies.
