    About as vigorous and intricate as a glossy romantic comedy can get without collapsing under the weight of its own merriment.
  2. Smart, spiky comedy upends every traditional notion of love, sex and family.
  3. 70
    This winning comedy joyfully embraces every possible permutation of love; cupid, it turns out, is indeed blind, and doesn't care much about gender either.
  4. 60
    Fast-paced, and entertaining in a soapy way, but plot demands require almost all of the dialogue to be flatly descriptive.
  5. To attempt a culinary metaphor, Ms. van der Oest manages a yolky, runny sitcom omelet rather than the airy soufflé of farce.
  6. The characters of this Dutch comedy aren't very interesting or original, but it has a stylish look and spirited performances.
  7. The title translates, roughly, as ''This & That,'' a confectionary shrug that pretty well sums up the blasé inconsequentiality of it all.

    As a study in sororal emasculation, Zus & Zo ("This and That") is neither funny nor particularly punch-drunk.

    Interesting Dutch film, nice performances, amusing story. There are some slow stretches scattered about, but overall it moves along well.
