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.

Trivia

During filming of the scene where Martin and Peter steal an ambulance and ram a police car while driving towards a Hercules airplane, an accident happened. Due to a minor miscalculation, the ambulance flipped onto its side upon hitting the police car. Since there was no replacement ambulance, the crew had to put the crashed one back on its wheels. Luckily, it still worked and filming could be resumed. See more »

Goofs

When Bennie rams his car into Lars Meuleman, the hair of cinematographer Rolf Dekens can be seen behind one of the car's windows. See more »

One of the worst Dutch movies ever.
23 September 2006 | by See all my reviews

I bought this movie on a DVD. After a big promotional campaign and not that bad scores on IMDb (normally quite accurate)I felt it would be worth the couple of bucks this would cost.

O my GOD. It is not even worth one cent.

As so many times before in dutch TV and Cinema the old trick of casting some young soap actors and/ or (local music television) presenters has been used to promote this movie. Mostly they have no talent what so ever. Take Johnny the Mol. He is the Dutch Torry Spelling. Father is a billionaire TV producer. But he can not act to safe his live. As a fact I have not ever seen any talents in this kid what so ever. Still he is very popular with young girls and some young boys I am sure.

So someone is pushing the right buttons.

I must say that this also did work for this movie. It has been all over the press. -Must be some good PR team for this one, maybe the same as Johhny?.- Anyway. The story, the actors, the dialog the, plot, the effects, the directing is all so cheesy you will not believe. I could not bare it for longer than an hour.

If you buy or want to watch this movie anyway. Be prepared to be disappointed. For this will happen. "Vet Hard" zelfs and that's a guarantee.

If you do watch this movie. And hate it, as I did. Please help to spare others the disappointment and vote. Also give input for the reviews that are honest and not from the producers and other makers.

For in my mind there is no other possibility than this for some of the good reviews up here.
