The flight is supposed to depart in the morning but the watch on Ole's portable stereo displays between 13:00 and 13:30 when Ole and Stig-Helmer are waiting to board the aircraft. When on the plane, the watch shows times between 14:00-14:30. In the hotel bus, the guide says that the time is 15:00 local (16:00 Swedish). With a flying time from Stockholm to Las Palmas of almost 6 hrs, it is impossible that the time would be 13:00 before they even went on the plane. See more »

Truly a masterpiece
17 January 2002 | by (Kalix, Sweden) – See all my reviews

Sällskapsresan is a work from a true genious: Lasse Åberg.

In this movie he makes fun of all typical charter-tourists who became a large group in the late 70's during the charter-boom in Sweden. The characters he has created are very special in their kind of way. We have for example two semi-alcoholics, one typical "swedish-couple", one norwegian, one swedish and two teenage sprited middle-aged women who are looking for fun and pleasure in their holiday. All these characters blend real good as Lasse adds a sort of calmness with his Winnie the Pooh-ish character Stig-Helmer.

This movie has been watched and amused by the whole population of Sweden. Still, 21 years after its release, it's still a very, VERY funny movie to watch as the people in the movie still exists on charter-trips.

A gifted mans masterpiece and gift to the people of Sweden.
