this movie is actually funny to watch
10 February 2004 | by Paul van EijdenSee all my reviews

Being skeptic about this film (another Dutch feel-good movie) I was surprised to notice this movie is actually funny to watch. The whole movie has slap-stick humor and doesn't have much depth in it. Of course a feel-good movie doesn't need such depth, it's much better than the standard Hollywood morale producers often need to put in their movies. However if you don't like Dutch comedies, better not watch this one. Note that this movie is directed by the same director who made "Schatjes" and written by the same writer of "All Stars".
