★★★★ review by bethanyb on Letterboxd
Dutch film about a bullied kid and his wimpy dad, and how the kid makes his dad seem like a mafia boss to improve their lives. Basically a live action cartoon. Very well done, funny, sweet, and the kid is incredibly talented. I also loved the music - I think the credits said all the original songs were done by one band. If so I need to look them up (I will regardless) because there were a lot of varied things in there. Great film.
★★★½ review by Will Lambert on Letterboxd
A great indie film. Very funny and charming.
★★★½ review by Tyler Moore on Letterboxd
The film is quite funny. There's plenty of comedy cliches & some tonal problems, but it's a plenty enjoyable kids film. Easily the best January film of 2016 so far.

erg leuke familiefilm
★★★★ review by cinemagazine on Letterboxd
"Er zijn natuurlijk veel familiefilms die onder deze noemer geschaard worden, maar om naar ‘De Boskampi’s’ te kijken, hoef je echt geen kinderen als excuus mee te nemen. Vrijwel alles klopt aan deze spannende en amusante komedie: van de schitterende begintitels tot de eindcredits, de film in de film, de acteurs, de muziek, de gevatte dialogen en de aankleding."
