Play 4 also honors Jack Vermeer – Flanders’ most popular comedian who will turn 70 at the end of May – with an honor. In Hit The Road Jacques, Julie Vermeer takes her father on a road trip through Flanders for a few weeks.
He also watched duty media observer Bram de Brabander “Hit The Road Jacques,” but apparently unimpressed by phrases like “Father is so stupid, daughter is so stupid,” he says on Het Laatste Nieuws. “Whether this statement contains a foundation of truth, I wisely leave in the middle, but the passage above in the first” Hit The Road Jacques “showed in any case that” conducting research “was not at the top of Julie’s to-do list,” it appears.
“As a result, the tour I had with the Pope with the Pope on the occasion of his 70th birthday seemed like a missed opportunity. The dynamics between father and daughter themselves did not explode on screen,” said de Brabander.
“Try again in September”
De Brabander notes: “The fact that Play4 devotes so much attention to Vermeire’s 70th birthday is absolutely remarkable – the nation’s biggest face puller has caused quite a stir on VRT and VTM in recent decades.” “So it looks like Hit The Road Jacques is a rather clever move to give Jolie’s brand new some time to run.”
“There’s no shortage of charisma,” he concludes, “but the engine is still busting in terms of content. Try again in September.”
