Trivia

A group of people in Friesland (the Dutch province where the zombie outbreak takes place) were not amused by the film. They criticized how Friesland was depicted as a backwards rural area, and argued that the mindless zombies were a bad parody of Frisian people themselves. They also called upon cinemas in Friesland not to show the movie, and threatened to disrupt the premiere in Eindhoven. This didn't happen, but the town in Brabant used as the New Kids' hometown was later found to have been 'decorated' with Frisian flags and texts. Whether these actions were genuine or part of a secret marketing campaign has never been made clear. See more »

When West Side Story meets FnF and NOTLD
19 March 2020 | by jayjayceeSee all my reviews

"New Kids Nitro" is a 2011 Dutch comedy directed by Steffen Haars and Flip Van der Kuil starring Huub Smit and Tim Haars. The last film was too much of a mindless fun that my brother and I couldn't help but purchasing and watching the sequel as well. What can I say? Between all of those cinematic masterpieces there needs to be time for trash like this. Oh, and I enjoy any minute I can shut my brain off and laugh at the most stupid friend group from Maaskantje. There's actually nothing to add to what I said about the first film, it's equally enjoyably terrible. Ridiculing the concept of their own show and the predecessor, the film takes place after the devastating events of "Turbo" and creates an untypical and highly questionable genre mix that really doesn't take itself seriously. It's stupidly epic and epically stupid and everything in between, but it's such a wholesome good feeling I get when I follow the deeds of the maniacs Richard, Gerrie, Barrie, Rikkert and Robbie. They might be antisocial elements and probably the worst any society has to offer, but I love those absolute idiots, especially when they are competing with a rival gang from the detested neighboring city, Schijndel. It's the ultimate showdown of the lowlifes and of course you root for Richard and his boys. In what seems to be the Netherlands's answer to "Fast and Furious" they live out their conflicts and one dirty and stupid joke follows another. If you think that's already all this film has to offer, it all suddenly turns into a zombie apocalypse feature as well. The visual effects and makeup are of course absolutely terrible, but they make it work in an extremely cheesy way. Again, their running gags and jokes caught me off guard again (zombie car race) and when Richard begins to fight like a beast to save his mother (all the while undressing himself?) it's so strangely epic and so much fun. Still better than the latest seasons of "The Walking Dead". Not (?) All in all, it remains a totally mindless guilty pleasure that lives from its likeable protagonist morons and creates a horrible genre mix. It's New Kids. Don't take it seriously, they don't even do it themselves. It's simply there to appeal to the most retarded kind of humour in all of us and doesn't want be anything else but enjoyable trash. I think I'm correct saying that we all love those lowlifes with all of our hearts. I hope there's gonna be another sequel sometime.
