Trivia

The movie was made as part of Entertainment Experience, an experiment of audience participation whereby the production of the movie was going to be combined with a talent-hunt like "American Idol". Aspiring film makers were encouraged to use three minutes (written by 'Kim van Kooten') as the basis for writing a full movie script and send it in, out of which Paul Verhoeven would select his favorite version to direct. Amateur actors were initially attracted to star in the film. However, Verhoeven finally filmed Tricked (2012) with professional actors and did not use the submitted screenplays. He wrote the screenplay together with Robert Alberdingk Thijm, based on some ideas they got from the submissions. See more »

User Reviews

 
Short and sweet
22 November 2013 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

Maybe sweet is the wrong word to use, especially when it comes to a movie made by Paul Verhoeven. But I really liked this one. It may be predictable (to a point), but it is a fun watch, with some really good moments. It's not PC (expected), but it's also very short, running just under an hour.

Paul wanted to stay active so he made this movie, while waiting for a bigger job to happen. That doesn't mean he just went ahead and made it fast and without planning. There is a making of on the DVD that shows you the preparation he took and how he planned a lot of things. He treated this like a feature length even though it wasn't. It's also "european", so expect nudity and other things in it
