Anke Bouma: [talks through the mailbox] Mr. Gisberts, I am Anke Bouma, the principal. In case of divorce, our school only allows contact with the student after permission from the parent the child lives with. That means I can't help you.

Dutch Action-Comedy-Mix At His Best !!
19 January 2010 | by homecoming8See all my reviews

Dutch Director Ruud Van Hemert had a smashing hit with "Schatjes!" (1984) in Holland so that a sequel became inevitable. Almost the entire cast is back in "Mama Is Boos", again directed by Van Hemert. This time, it is not the kids who raise hell, but the war is between the parents John (Peter Faber) and Danny (Geert DeJong). Their kids are caught up in their fight when John returns to his girlfriend Jane. "Mama Is Boos" is certainly in the same league as "Schatjes" and was again a huge success in Holland, compare it with box-office movies like "Flodder". I saw it several times throughout the years and I still love it. It is "Holland's Glory" at his best. For those who never saw it (since it is a Dutch movie after all): check it out if you get the chance. To this day it is still hard to believe that Van Hemert later went on to make total crap like "Feestje" instead of a third one.
