Trivia

The character of Japie Stokvis is changed drastically from his original version, which portrayed him as a hyper-intelligent little boy with thick glasses. Although the final season of the TV show was set in the same year as the movie (1974 AD), Japie looks much older, wearing half long hair and no glasses at all. There is no mention of his extreme intelligence or his love for complex literature. See more »

Nice comedy
12 April 2014 | by eg-naroldSee all my reviews

Nice comedy after a most successful series with the same name on television.

Some fragments are really comic but the film is not a jewel. Why not? The casting is the problem; not the story nor the acting. The stepmother of Jaap Kooijman is not the woman with a strong dominant character which was needed for the role. The yoga-teacher is not the womanizer that the maker of the film wanted us to believe in. The romance between him and Nel is rather silly and unbelievable. Nevertheless, the film is an nice comedy with a good storyline. I recommend visiting.
