Enjoyable, if you can suspend disbelief

The premise of this kids' film is promising, if not particularly original. Meester Kees, a young student supply (US: substitute) teacher is assigned to a strict middle school whose principal believes that all work and no play makes Jack a wise boy. Kees has other ideas; he thinks that learning should be fun. His unconventional methods inevitably lead him into conflict and ultimately trouble with his boss.

The story is told from the perspective of the students and ably highlights the incomprehensibility of adults in a way that younger viewers are bound to love.

The problem with the film is that Mees Kees himself is not an inspired teacher. He is socially and professionally inept to the point of incompetence. He bumbles his way through class, teaching them nothing. In reality, his spirited pupils would have eaten him alive, rather than falling for him.

This is a charming film with great performances from the young cast, including Kees himself, but the fundamental flaw in the plot spoiled it for me. No doubt that's just because I'm getting on a bit...

It is a beautiful portrait of a couple off emotions of what is education and childhood happiness is

This Family movie is a wonderful portrait of a young teacher who experiences the conflicts of really good(fun) teaching and the grown up world. A superb feel good movie better than a lot of Hollywood /disney productions! Thobias one of the young boys has lost his father and his new teacher mees kees also. He has sympathy for the boy, and he helps him in the struggles the boy faces. The head teacher stands for the real world with it's rules and his lack of joy and happiness. The movie is a compilation of the children books which the name Mees Kees i personally think this is one of the best dutch family movies of the last decade.Especially while the education reforms of the last 2 decades have made the profession of a teacher no longer what it use be be.

The family blockbuster that had me in tears

This movie enlightened me, the amazing story and cutting edge acting had me bawling tears of joy. The featured song "Favoriete Meester" is now my #1 and I can't wait to watch this movie 27 more times!
