Yes Nurse, No Nurse is fun -- if you get into its groove.

A campy, brightly colored musical comedy based on a popular '60s Dutch sitcom that's unlike any other film out there.

Top Critic

This nonsensical Dutch movie musical rides on the dubious assumption that camp and infantilism are the same thing.

Styles range from cabaret to barbershop to toe-tapping bubblegum, and the rainy-day serenade at the start nods Cherbourgward, with a soupçon of Low Countries sass.

At once corny and precious, its humor seems too heavily ethnic to travel well.

This cranky non-Dutchman came to wish the director had cut a couple of tunes: A little of this goes a long way.

Audience Reviews for Ja zuster, nee zuster (Yes Nurse! No Nurse!)

One of my favorite movies of all time, this off-kilter Dutch musical has all the shiny camp of a John Waters film but with none of the smarm.

Hilarious movie! Don't worry about the subtitles because you don't noticed them. The movie is too funny!
