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.
