Marina Antunes [Celluloid 07.13.10] Netherlands trailer news comedy

This is so insane I’m not even sure where to start.

True, we get these sorts of crazy comedies this side of the pond as well. You know the ones. The ones that take an old idea, twist it around, mix in pop culture references and spit out a movie on the other end that is grown inducing. Admittedly, these could very well be the inspiration for Happily Ever After (Lang & Gelukkig) but there’s something about the fact that it’s in Dutch and even crazier than average Friedberg and Seltzer crap that marks Pieter Kramer’s film as different.

The good word here is that Don Duyns’ script takes classic fairy tales (Cinderella and Little Red Riding Hood are the two obvious ones), adds in contemporary references like the ugly sisters aptly named Paris and Hilton, mixes a dash of corny humour and musical numbers featuring pop acts and Dutch hits to produce a batshit crazy trailer for what I assume will be a crazier movie.

And damned it if I didn’t laugh though the entire trailer. Part of it is an “I can’t believe they did that” response and the other is “I can’t believe I’m actually laughing at this.” Either way, this screams gold. GOLD I say!

Crazy trailer after the break.

Those sets look amazingly surreal. I hope this gets good subs and gets released here soon.

This looks like Kids In The Hall on LSD. Hope there's an English subbed trailer coming soon. Nice job Marina!
