Best movie of this Belgian duo
2 December 2005 | by kurt-beullensSee all my reviews

Back in the 70's and 80's Gaston and Leo were the most popular Belgian humorist duo. For several years in a row they did the End of the Year-show on BRT and you could also see them in the TV-show "De Kolderbrigade". But people liked them most for their live-shows. It's not that they were extremely funny, but the 2 men did what they did in such an amusing way, that it was always a joy to watch them. I still enjoy watching one of their sketches when it's on TV. In the '80's they made 3 movies. First there was "Zware Jongens", then there was this one and finally they made "Gaston en Leo in Hong Kong". I always liked "Paniekzaaiers" the most. It's a small and sympathetic movie with nice dialog. Sadly their are some things which drag the movie down. First there are some very lame scenes which are ridiculous and childish and really not funny. Second their is the final part of the movie which takes place in the basement: not very good. And then their is the music! Extremely cheap-sounding, very, very '80's and also add to giving this movie it's childish feel. But it's always fun to watch Gaston and Leo, so altogether "Paniekzaaiers" can be called a good movie which is a must for the fans of these 2 Belgian comedians.
