Trivia

Both the oldest daughter and the second son of the Flodder family are named Kees. A very subtle element of the movie shows many more people bearing the name Kees: a police officer, a bartender and the councilman's driver. See more »

Goofs

While the Flodders are packing their stuff to move to Zonnedael there is a siren in the background. It cannot be from a Dutch police car or ambulance, since it is a gliding sound. Dutch police cars have 2 different tones and ambulances have 3 different tones in their sirens who are not glides. See more »

Brilliant
23 March 2002 | by Geert OSee all my reviews

Flodder is without a doubt the funniest film I've ever seen. Timing is the keyword in this movie. I've must have seen the movie for more than 30 times. Every time I discover something new that makes me laugh out loud. The acting is superb and so is the directing. All in all, this is maybe the best movie ever made in Holland.

10/10
