Movie Reviews

Dutch Girls
Sandra L. Payette | Alvin, TX | 08/20/2006
(3 out of 5 stars)

"A funny little movie about young adoleslent boys from a strict prep school hockey team headed for Amsterdam. Colin is so adorable, and quite the gentlemen but very naive. The head master and the coach have ideas on how the young men should behave and represent the school. However, the young men have other ideas and it's presented in the title of the movie. Their antics before getting to Amsterdam and after were funny and delightful, just wasn't enough. His roommate in Amsterdam was just histerical. It was delightful to see Colin at a much younger age, and one can see how he has matured to the handsome and talented man he is today."
Not as good as I remembered

"It's all a bit dated, sadly - the sort of TV drama we used to see a lot of, but don't get made now; and watching this you can see why. It's all a bit predictable and slow. Still, to be fair, most of the acting is top notch (Colin Firth, Timothy Spall, James Wilby in particular, although the usually excellent Bill Paterson is something of a hammy characature). I know it's a period piece, but it's also a little hard to believe that 18-year old boys as this naive and awkward, even those with a sheltered public school upbringing. Not to mention the leads are a little long in the tooth (Tim Spall pushing thirty by this time). Still, it does have a certain charm and yes, I did enjoy a trip down memory lane."

"This is a cute little movie. An opportunity to see some actors when they were just starting--Colin Firth, Timothy Spall, James Wilby, Adrian Lukis. The boys from a Scottish public school take a trip to the Netherlands and try to get lucky, with little success. Love the very graceful last scene."
