With his own unique comedy, Recep Ivedik continues his adventure in this fifth story.
Recep Ivedik is a portray of ordinary Anatolian Turkish citizen living in the "big" city, who is conservative, churly, non-compliant and uncouth.
This caricature-like character of a Turkish male figure disturbs some middle-class English-speaking internet-aware former Anadolian immigrants because either they used to be a 'Recep' themselves before migrating to the big city or they have one or more 'Recep's in their own family. For them, rating this movie as 'TERRIBLE' is way of expression, stating that 'I'm not a villager Recep any more'.
You will never read a comment from those who honestly enjoy this comedy because ordinary Turkish citizens can't read-write English and they're not aware that IMDb ever exists. They will never be able to rate and post comments about how they laugh with Recep Ivedik movies and enjoy watching him.
I think Sahan Gökbakar is a brilliant comedian and he knows what Turkish citizen really likes. That's why all Revep Ivedik movies make great money. Characters like Recep Ivedik actually exist in our lives and they are everywhere.
Obsessively hating Recep Ivedik and Sahan Gokbakar became a common reflex among those people who are actually real-life Recep Ivedik personalities themselves.
