Trivia

When the shootings were over, scenes enough to make almost three films were shot. See more »

Goofs

The number that Arif dials in jail on the ship doesn't match to the number that appears on the LCD screen, since there were a change in the main sponsors of the film. Both sponsors were GSM Operators. But at the filming sequence Telsim was the sponsor, however at the post production sequence it was Avea. See more »

Quotes

Arif: Would you mind if I turned on on the music?
Old Villager: What kind of music? I don't listen to foreign music! How can I be sure that ain't swearing at my mother!
Arif: How old is your mother?
Old Villager: She is still alive, 93 by now.
Arif: Don't worry, old timer, this band is new. They cannot know your mom!
Band singing: Motherfucker, oh yeah! Motherfucker!

Perfect comedy with bad luck
16 December 2004 | by the_xlSee all my reviews

The movie is funny. Except some essential Turkish jokes, it's comic for any one. There are so many details that can make a man laugh.

We seen large super computers at Matrix, that loaded something to Neo, in GORA they used a Commodore 64(a computer classic :) )to do it. An android fortune tells to princess with Turkish coffee, these kinds of details are make movie much more funny.

Story is great, acting is great, details are great, some Special effects are not so good, but it's not a Hollywood movie, and also CEM YILMAZ, he wrote and also played perfect. He is really funny and perfect as in his other advertisement movies and old movies
