Hey, how cute: A Dutch movie is currently in ten viewership numbers on Netflix worldwide. Less fun: it comes Just say yes, The uninspiring and old-fashioned romantic comedy movie that’s been made here for ages. Anyone familiar with a relentless stream of Dutch rom-coms knows this is a huge feat in itself.
what do we see? Lotte (Yolanthe Cabau in glasses and button-up shirts) has only one ambition: to marry. With a man shudder, the absurd broadcaster of your TV station. He dumped her live during the broadcast and soon after her sister would marry Loot boss. You understand: her life is in ruins. Fortunately, there is Jim Bakkum, who gave her a makeover by raising him in a revealing red dress, and who turns out to be the true prince in shining armor.
Is there anyone who says white horse? Yep, he actually ran into scene 1. Besides, for the romkombingo card: Does it bump into each other with the coffee in hand? Check. Crying on the sofa in flannel pajamas and a bowl of ice cream and red wine? Check. Venture out to a complete stranger on a park bench? Check. Opposites of Friends as support and support presented in the voiceover? Check. Wedding dress fitting session? Check. Is my wedding dress okay? Check.
The puzzling thing is that the directors Appie Boudellah and Aram van de Rest don’t even try to hide the source of the ideas, nor are they looking to manipulate the clichés. The scene in which Loot unexpectedly has to present a local story and does everything wrong, is shamelessly copied from Bridget Jones Although Cabau is not Renee Zellweger. The bachelorette party is an abbreviated version of Bridesmaids. The teacher ‘s dirty character over all that has a one-night stand in the classroom must have been invented after the Danish series Rita It can also be seen on Netflix. It’s all tied together with love, without anyone having to worry about character development or any other logic. For example, the unsympathetic heroes of that TV channel sometimes work on beloved local news, then in big studio shows, sometimes live, sometimes not, as appropriate to the scenario.
Is this a lack of interest? Pure laziness? Anyway: I hope all these international viewers forget this soon and don’t think this is Dutch movie.
Just say yes
