Storyline

Ten years after her failed marriage, recently fired mother Ellis "El" Vermeulen (Linda de Mol) and preteen son Thijsje (Hylke de Haan) get peanuts while her ex spends everything on new flame Mirella. She finally takes Susan's (Dame Joan Collins') amoral course "How To Marry A Millionaire". She actually gets socialites interested, including hunk Gijs (Chris Tates), a fine substitute dad for Thijsje. Of course, there is a catch. Written by KGF Vissers

Niet eens echt slecht
27 September 2004 | by stuff2deleteSee all my reviews

Or, in English: Not that bad really.

This film could well have been made by Hollywood, situated in New York or Los Angeles. But as it happened, it's Dutch and set in The Hague. Other than that, it's just a thirteen-a-dozen romantic comedy. Now traditionally the Dutch have always been monumentally bad at making films like these. They were either overly artistic (and thus boring) or the production quality was so bad it makes Ed Wood look like Steven Spielberg. But as I said, this one is not that bad really. A bit of My Fair Lady, a hint of Bridget Jones, throw in Joan Collins for good measure and voila, a nice little flick you can watch and then forget about. It's not exactly an advertisement for Dutch cinema (like Zusje, Van God Los, Phileine zegt Sorry) but you won't evacuate the theater in a blind panic either.
