Martijn Lakemeier and Gaite Jansen are Adorable & the movie is enjoyable with all its silliness
5 January 2011 | by saadgkhanSee all my reviews

LOVER OF LOSER – CATCH IT (B) Very interesting yet silly teen Dutch Love Story. The movie has tried really hard to create suspense and danger by involving teen love with the Sex industry. This did make the story interesting and sweet performances by Martijn Lakemeier and Gaite Jansen are totally treat to watch. So, it works for me. I watched this movie for Martijn Lakemeier because ever since I saw him in "Winter in WarTime" Oorlogswinter", I am mesmerized by him. It was good to see him in today's teenager's role. Geite Jansen is new for me but she was very charming and soon I will be watching her other movie " Schemer", hope she is as good as she was in this movie. Ruud FeltKamp looks like a Popsicle but plays a villain. LOl… Overall, it's still a good time pass with all its silly script. Watch it for Martijn Lakemeier and Gaite Jansen.
