Did You Know?


This is the only Flodder story which clearly seems to follow the continuity of an earlier story, while the third movie and the episodes of the TV show don't seem to show any kind of continuity at all. At the start of this movie, the Flodder villa is still in ruins after it was destroyed by a tank in the first movie. Also, grandpa Flodder is still absent after he was implied to be killed by a train in the first movie (which was ignored in all later Flodder productions). The only thing missing is Johnny's fiancee Yolanda, implying that the relationship failed anyway. See more »

Jacques 'Sjakie' van Kooten: [runs to the police officer handling the take-away] Sir! That's my car!
Motor Cop: Well, this is the tow way zone!
Jacques 'Sjakie' van Kooten: I just arrived. I am from Holland!
Motor Cop: That's very nice, sir! Welcome to America!
Jacques 'Sjakie' van Kooten: But I... I just lost my family!

Anarchy in the USA
16 November 2009 | by SandcoolerSee all my reviews

In this somewhat inferior sequel the Flodder family finds itself in America, where they get into antics that are fairly identical to the ones from the original. They even end up in yet another car chase with bad guys, what are the odds? The only difference is that neither of the cars ends up in a swimming pool this time around, making the scene about a hundred times less awesome. The son isn't spying on female tennis players anymore, now he's turned to basketball. And then some crooks catch him and want to beat him up, just like in you've guessed it, the first one. There are some new jokes that work, but mostly the makers really just relied on the audience having low expectations and wanting more of the same. Which I guess isn't a particularly dumb move. If you liked the first one you'll like the sequel too, because it involves the same elements (crude jokes, action scenes, Tatjana Simic naked), but overall it seems rather phoned in.
