Did You Know?

Trivia

Both "Manta, Manta" as well as "Manta - Der Film (1991)" were cash-ins on the then-popular "Opel Manta"-jokes. See more »

Goofs

The Manta from the lake has a front grille with a double air intake, so it was produced before facelifting in 1982 but the Manta used in other scenes has a quadruple air intake, so it's a newer model. See more »

portrays stereotypes just right
22 May 2001 | by clanpainlessSee all my reviews

i can really understand that this film isn't rated very high, when you're not from holland or germany you won't understand this movie. it's primarely based on stereotypes / people that live in these countries. if you know people like this you'll see that every stereotype in the movie is portrayed just right! i love this "cult" movie.
