A famous game show host is being harassed in a restaurant by a strange man who claims to have kidnapped his wife and daughter. A morbid game ensues in which the game show host turns out to be the contestant.
After finding out that they have a debt of EUR40.000 with the tax service, four very out-of-shape men working at a car shop start to train for a marathon, in which they can win the money to pay the debt.

Spoiled-rotten airhead Dutch socialites Kitty, Estelle and Nicolette hire criminal Cliff to eliminate their husbands, businessmen which they suspect of adultery. Cliff's uncharacteristic clumsiness in staging accidents and pure chance cause ample complications.Written by
First, it takes about an hour to even start with the storyline. You could easily skip 1 hour and not miss a thing.
Secondly, the acting is terrible! Are these experienced actors? They sound like students in a high school play.
Thirdly, the dialogs are inane. There are plenty of kids' movies with wittier dialog.
Lastly, the humor is bad as well. There are two kinds of jokes in this movie: slapstick (when getting out of a car, the door hits a guy and he falls in a canal) and misinterpretation (somebody asks a question, but it is answered in a different context).
Bad, bad, bad. Not all Dutch movies are this bad, believe me!
