Storyline

Bennie, a clumsy criminal who's touchy about his weight, teams up with his adoptive father's biological (serial killer) son, his employees who in his absence turned his snack-bar into a quiche bakery, a suicidal manic-depressive woman and a Yougoslavian who keeps blowing things up unintended. They need to get 300000 Euro to get Bennies father a new liver. Complicating matters are that Bennie is being stalked by gangsters who want him to pay back a debt, the employees are more interested in cooking than in criminality, nobody can communicate with the Yugoslavian, the adoptive and biological son don't get along, and everything that can go wrong does go wrong - leaving a path of damaged buildings, people and - especially - vehicles behind.

Did You Know?

Trivia

Bennie suddenly yells at Koen "Learn to speak Dutch properly" in a conversation. Non-Dutch-speaking viewers might not get what this is about, since Koen's lines are subtitled in the same English as the other characters'. It is a reference to the different ways Belgians and Dutch speak Dutch (same language, different accents and idiom, like UK and US English). See more »

Goofs

When the police car hits the dog walking service car, the car's door is closed. In the next shot, where it is hit, the door is unhinged. This is not due to the impact; it's already opened before the car is hit. See more »

Quotes

[Koen talks to Katja in the middle of a car chase; Bennie is driving]

Crazy Credits

After the credits an additional scene is shown featuring Martin and Peter baking fries in Bennie's snack bar. They are watching a TV program and see that Dr. Van Isacker has won a quiche-baking competition; it is implied that he stole their recipes. Martin and Peter then throw their fries away in rage.

Vet slecht
29 July 2007 | by vitachielSee all my reviews

My God, what a rip-off! Dutch comedy at its lowest level, with your fair share of unfunny slapstick, simplistic misogynism and very stupid jokes. Even Luc Besson has not ever sunk to this level...

Can you blame the actors? Well, no second-rate soap actor would of course refuse a part in such a blockbuster, but I must say that I was disappointed by the fact that Jack Wouterse (who was magnificent in Temmink) accepted his part. Is it so hard to get a decent role these days? Or did he just misread the script?

The only reason why I give this movie 2/10 instead of 1/10 is the aircraft scene, which was quite spectacular. So just watch the aircraft scene and move on to some thing else.
