A 32-year-old waster and eternal student, Thijs, leads a slovenly, relaxed life full of beer, chicks and the occasional shift at a tedious media megastore. When Thijs visits his sister's house to do some washing, instead of his usual encounter with her semi-perfect family, he meets Lisa, the baby-sitter: a mature sixteen-year-old with exorbitant ambitions. Without intending to, Lisa has a profound effect on Thijs, unveiling a deeply ingrained dissatisfaction with his own passive behaviour.

Funny and charming
28 November 2014 | by benjamin_komenSee all my reviews

If a movie causes you to leave the cinema with a smile on your face, you know it reached its goal (if that was the goal of the movie). The kids acting in this movie are soo cute!

The main actor says "oh, this is so cliché" at one point in time and I guess he somehow nailed it, most scenes are a caricature of everyday real life human interaction. Still the story, or rather the stream of funny events, keeps you entertained till the end.

Somehow the story that's told feels like one of those thoughts you sometimes think, but would never speak out loud. Because it's too bizarre or out of touch with reality. Some parts can be confronting as well, who doesn't feel like you haven't made the best of your life and are just wasting it a bit? But at some point when you hit rock bottom, the only way is up.

I would definitely recommend seeing this movie, if you're in for 99 minutes with a smile on your face.
