Hello everybody! As a Turkish movie watcher and an occasional IMDb.com reviewer, I feel obligated to write my review for this one. First of all, Cem Yilmaz is a well-known stand-up comedian in Turkey. He is the director and the leading actor in this film. As the screening began only a few days ago, I am least affected by commentaries. Well, the beginning of the movie was awesome, the jokes come one after another. I think Cem Yilmaz has clearly resolved what Turkish people want to see in jokes, various situations created by illiterate people or upstarts and their conversations being garnished with a bunch of f-words. With notoriously increasing censorship in Turkey, his movies will always be among top- rated ones in Turkey. When this movie is screened on TV someday, in my opinion 90 percent of jokes will be censored and we will be watching something different. Therefore, well done Cem for reminding us of our sense of humor and for not being overwhelmed with self-censorship like most comedians. As for criticism, I found the second-half of the movie and the ending a bit too long. The story development could have been better. The old hand, Zafer Algöz, is introduced too late in the movie. The religious-looking guy could have been much better. Last but not least, Irina Ivkina is gorgeous. Thanks Cem for introducing us such a beauty. In my opinion, she is more beautiful than Bond girls. All in all, I believe that this movie will be among the best in comedy genre this year in Turkey.
