DutchA spoiled prep-school boy is horrified when he meets his mother's new boyfriend, Dutch, an unsophisticated, sometimes boorish working-class guy. But poor Dutch, in order to get to know more about the boy, he volunteers to pick him up from a prep school, only to know that the boy is not the nicest kid. Not at all!

Critic Reviews of "Dutch"Time OutJanuary 26, 2006
It's all assembly-line stuff.New York TimesMay 20, 2003
If a film like this is to be funny at all, it had better work when the warring principals still hate each other, before the rich boy is shown to be a sweet kid and the whole story turns to mush.Washington PostJanuary 01, 2000
The acting is only a little more uninspired than the screenplay, which is directed without shame or flair by Peter Faiman of Crocodile Dundee.Washington PostJanuary 01, 2000
Hughes, a man more prolific than Stephen King and less inspired than Aaron Spelling, has produced yet another forgettable project. This movie shouldn't even be allowed on planes.Chicago Sun-TimesJanuary 01, 2000
Hughes has written, directed and/or produced so many of these films by now that perhaps we can even forgive him for beginning to repeat himself.Cinema CrazedDecember 10, 2015
It's not Hughes' worst comedy effort by far, but it surely is by no means his best...Antagony & EcstasyNovember 16, 2011
A tiny peek into what the entire Hughes filmography might have been like if Hughes was a dogmatic Marxist.BrianOrndorf.comJuly 20, 2011
Hughes appears to love these characters, but he's serving a platter of rancid gags, losing interest as the story lurches from one roadside encounter to the next.Common Sense MediaDecember 18, 2010
Coarse tale of family and Thanksgiving for teens.TV GuideNovember 21, 2008
Provides quite a few moments of fun and pathos for audiences who appreciate sophisticated family fare.MovieholeSeptember 17, 2002
from the director of "Crocodile Dundee"? surely not!eFilmCritic.comJuly 27, 2002
Warmed-up John Huges pap. Not even the hard-working Ed O'Neill can save the day.
