Did You Know?


Since the movie was shot on location instead of a studio set, several locations could be shown which were never seen in the original television show. These are the garage, the sewers (including the office of the Bruine Rotterdammer newspaper) and the house of Jaap's mother-in-law. It's also the first time that Jaap and his colleagues are seen driving a bus. The house of the Stokvis family had appeared before, but only a few times in the first 3 seasons. 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.
