Not bad at all...
22 July 2006 | by imdb-14805See all my reviews

I bought the Dutch DVD which contains only Dutch audio and no subtitles (my Dutch isn't the best though).

I don't think the film is that bad. It has very funny moments, the actors are all above average and even the few f/x are really nice to see.

The story of the film is at times somewhat strange, indeed, but however the film has its funny highlights. I really saw films which were much more worse.

Conclusion: "De Zeemeerman" is a nice Dutch movie with great actors and it is not that bad as many people say.

PS: I also like the soundtrack - especially the title theme!
