Toilet humor nothing more..
5 March 2008 | by mertozturkSee all my reviews

Some films are so bad that they are actually good. And occasionally we feel affection for them because if nothing else, they invoke feelings of nostalgia when imagination and creativity were almost commonplace and the bottom line. However do not be fooled into thinking that because you found old Kemal Sunal, Sener Sen or Zeki-Metin movies or other well-written Turkish comedies funny, you'll respond similarly to this Recep Ivedik.

Sahan Gokbakar is not a very "funny" guy. At least for me.. He tries so hard to be funny, it is impossible not to be annoyed by him. I can maybe watch some 5 minutes of him and that would be it. This is 90 minutes and that was harsh.

If you don't count the continuous swearing and its unbearable annoyance, there is supposed to be a joke hiding somewhere in this film but obviously I blinked at the wrong time. If you have the sense of humor of an emotionally retarded orangutan you might just enjoy it but be sure not to blink..

If you are into Turkish humor or want to see a Turkish movie, please pass this. Try some old Sener Sen movies... Otherwise get ready to see some solid toilet humor without any endowment.
