A clichéd comedy of out-of-place stand-up routines and staid plotting...
25 October 2010 | by cgyfordSee all my reviews

Turkish TV and film director Hakan Algül ("Döngel Kârhanesi" & "Avrupa Yakası") re-teams with comedian Ata Demirer ("The Ottoman Republic" & "Avrupa Yakası") under the auspices of comedy impresarios Yılmaz Erdoğan and Necati Akpınar for this plodding comedy thriller which is one of the highest grossing Turkish films of 2010.

Village boy Hüseyin (Ata Demirer) leaves behind his doting grandparents and burgeoning romance with a local beauty to head off to Istanbul in search of his estranged father, who he tracks down with assistance of an old family friend and a popular night club singer (Demet Akbag) before being plunged into a clichéd comedy crime caper.

Golden Orange-winning film and theatre actress Demet Akbag ("Tersine Dünya" & "Vizontele") slums it in this re-teaming with "Vizontele Tuuba" bit-player Ata Demirer which sees the two constantly at odds as the miss-matched comedy duo at the head of a cast which includes a superb double act from Tanju Tuncel and Salih Kalyon as well as the beautiful Özge Borak.

Kicking-off with a painfully clichéd plot point the subsequent film has little driving force and flounders painfully as the writer-star is forced to run out various observational comedy routines from a staid stand-up act to inject comedy into an otherwise moribund storyline which has degenerated long before the stars are blundering around pretending to be blind in order to escape the mob.

"God! You've blown my mind at this hour of morning, bum fluff! "
