Awesome! Never get tired of seeing this movie!
19 August 2008 | by See all my reviews

I thought this movie was so awesome I've watched it 3 times! I first saw Moordwijven on a KLM flight and had to have it for myself. It's definitely a great way to spend a couple hours on a trans-Atlantic flight and an afternoon on the couch!

The humor and crazy hi-jinx are very entertaining. And who can get tired of making fun of stupidly rich people doing stupidly ridiculous things? Not to mention anal bleaching... really... who doesn't appreciate jokes of that caliber?

Although the humor is a little slapstick, this movie is quite funny and entertaining. I highly recommend it to anyone with an odd-ball sense of humor.
