Did You Know?
Antonie Kamerling, a well-known actor in Holland, was a fan of the series on which the movie was based, and requested to be in the movie alongside his good friend, Reinout Oerlemans, also the movie's producer. Sadly, Kamerling committed suicide before the movie's premiere, but his family agreed to leave his one scene in the movie.
When Peter Aerts is eating in his house, there are 2 remote controls on the table. When Peter Aerts puts his cash on the table, the remotes are gone.
Very great fun
Just went to see it and I have to admit, the movie exceeded
expectations tremendously. Having seen the sketches in before (and
liking them a lot) I was really concerned that transforming this to a
feature length movie would not work. I stand corrected.
The story is quite thin, but that's not bad. The five main characters
all loose their job on the same day and then decide not to pay for
anything at all any more. With the rest of the country following their
example the economy collapses. The government tries to put them in
prison for it (but fails horribly) resulting in what the guys do best,
putting up some sketch and making the whole audience laugh.
There's one very bad point in the movie. (This is where the spoiler
comes). It's the part where Reinout Oerlemans "walks in", declaring
that the budget for the movie is spent and the cast just have to tell
you the story. They really should not have done that.
Apart from that, just sit back and enjoy the ride. Oh, and if you don't
like the "New Kids" sketches on youtube, don't bother. You won't like
the movie. If you're not familiar with those, find some especially the
one with "the red one (die rooie)" and then decide. If you like them,
go see it.
