In one action-filled segment after another, this spoof of Hollywood exaggeration, rebellious teenagers, military machos, and domineering parents mimics some well-known characters and scenes from American movies, and pits a family's brood of kids against the Dutch army. In the constant battle with their parents, the son blows up their bedroom, and the daughter fights it out with her mother over a new boyfriend (they both want him). The father is a helicopter pilot from the nearby military base and as his children's activities escalate into setting up barbed wire around the house, the military gathers its forces for an attack. While a kind of uncontrollable anarchy pervades each step in the story, this fast-paced spoof does not have a definitive plot to hold everything together, and nor any noticeable character development - though for some viewers, the incongruous scenes would be entertaining enough by themselves.
