At the time that for example this was made, audiences, at least here, just didn't expect as much as we automatically do, today. What we take for granted today is far beyond what those behind production thought of. For the most part. The Olsen Gang films, once they got past the stupid, farcical level of the first… let's say four, that which was the standard back then, they got to contain well-crafted satire, and you could take a lot of them seriously, you could apply logic and it would not seem an alien concept. This draws obvious inspiration from that series, and pales to a blinding, shiny white by even a mild comparison. With that said… if you turn off your brain, don't ask questions, and simply let this entertain you, it probably will. The pacing is tremendously fast, without ever being overwhelming. It reaches the accepted norm length for a feature, and doesn't overstay its welcome. The performances range from underplayed to overacted, sometimes with positive results. This is, at points, a string of gags, more or less loosely tied together through the basic idea. Lines and reactions can be silly first and make sense second, if at all. But if you don't mind it, and you fancy a bit of dress-up shenanigans, it is tough to argue with how funny this is once you let it be what it is... hey, it's not like it's seen claiming to be, or presenting itself as, anything else. Besides, it never gets particularly disgusting or tasteless, in fact, so little so it's actually barely enough to make it worth mentioning at all. All you need to be able to laugh your head off at this is a predisposition for the humor, a general knowledge of Denmark... and its public restrooms... of the period, a smidgen of culture to 'get' the references, and the ability to access that switch in our brains that says "off"... come now, we all have it, don't we. I recommend this to anyone who feels they might find it a laugh to watch. Unlike other comedies from our country of this era, it's virtually entirely clean, and can be viewed by anyone(what there is should prove sufficiently subtle, or close to it). 7/10
