Storyline

Law student Thijs shares a house in which every room is the HQ of constant cruising for one night stands, relationships are considered a waste of lives. Suddenly Ben, his best mate since childhood, announces he passed on his room to Susan, who brings her studly boyfriend Stef, because Ben is- getting married to heiress Talita Bekooy. Thijs now remembers his old ambition to start his own restaurant, but can't get a bank loan- until Ben recommends Thijs, the till then reluctant best man, to his in-laws-to-be as MC for the society wedding of the year, Sir is pleased to hear the extravaganza budget 'reduced' to 150,000 Euros. Then Cupid's arrow hits Thijs himself and Susan, but when the banker tells dad Bekooy he's totally inexperienced and poor, it all crumbles down. Yet the boy bravely perseveres...

This is a film that has not much going for it. The main actors are to old to play students. That is why they are totally unbelievable.

Antonie is a good actor, but here he is wasted. Chantal Janzen should give it up, just like that Beau van Erven Dorens guy. The film has similar story lines from other dutch films. Nothing is new, and the jokes are nothing special.

Only Daphne Bunskoek is fresh in this stale film.

This film was a disaster at the box office, cause it was produced for a rather large amount of money. On DVD it is worth a look , if you can watch it for free that is.
