New Kids Turbo Trailer (2011)
Rikkert, Barrie, Richard, Robbie and Gerrie have fabulous mullets and manlier than manly moustaches. They do not, however, have jobs. All of this – hair, more hair, and unemployment – is largely because they are idiots. And not just idiots. These are idiots in classic late 80s style, their lives fueled by big hair, fast cars and loud music. Theirs would be unremarkable lives if not for a fateful decision made after being cut off of welfare. If the government won’t give them free money, they decide, they simply won’t pay for anything. Cue the most incompetent and small-minded crime spree ever concocted, one that somehow lands the group status as national folk heroes. Clearly this cannot stand. The government must take action. Unfortunately the government is even worse at governing than these guys are at being criminals.
Welcome to the world of New Kids Turbo, the first big screen foray of a popular Dutch sketch comedy show. Taking sketch comedy to feature length can be a difficult affair but these guys defy the odds by bringing just enough humanity to their characters while displaying a jaw dropping commitment to their own bad taste.
The most aggressively – and hysterically – stupid movie ever made in Dutch history, New Kids Turbo was the runaway smash hit of 2010. This film about stupid people behaving stupidly defied expectations on such a grand scale that it drew nearly double the combined, total box office take of all Dutch films combined in the year 2000. There are New Kids Turbo fast food selections throughout The Netherlands. There are New Kids Turbo branded fireworks. And all this from a movie built around mongoloid jokes and the characters shouting “Cunt!” at the end of every sentence. Stupid gutter comedy has seldom been funnier or – ironically – smarter than this.
