Floris van Rozemond Junior, son and heir of a long line of knights of that name, refuses to go in the military 'family business' and becomes an actor, a profession scorned by his homonymous father, the general of the under-age duke of Burgundy. The duke chose this year to pay for his people to have bread and butter, rather then canons for the army, but relies for Floris senior's defense force on a novelty Holy relic from the East, a nail from the Holy Cross, supposedly rendering invulnerable, smuggled to his court in an inconspicuous place- a horse's arse, yet the men of his rival, the duchess of Gelre, think they got it from the stripped body of the courier. Now Floris Sr. is charged with transporting it, but hides it in cheeses, which get sold to the duchess and distributed to her men in Christmas bonus packets.

Still keen to feature the original Floris in this remake/spoof/sequel, the story was changed so that Michiel Huisman's Floris is now Rutger Hauer's grandson, enabling them to show Hauer in flashback footage from the original series. See more »
This is one of the worst movies I have ever seen. First the script is about average, should contain some humor, but I could not even raise a smile. Second the editing of the movie is done very very bad. Maybe that is also one of the reasons why it's a bad movie. Third the acting is very bad, even one of the better actress's Linda van Dijk is playing one of her worst roles. OK, comparing this film with the original TV series can not be made, but watching the DVD few years ago, I still think that series can pass the test of time, this movie can't. I also hesitated about stop watching the movie halfway, but had hope it would end better, but it was a waste of time and money. If someone really wants to watch it, hire it, but don't buy it. Cees
