An order for 1,000 yachts for a middle-east sheik is up for grabs. The list of contestants has been narrowed down to two companies: one is a multinational one with good backing and the other is run by visionaries and enthusiasts with their main focus on rowing-boats. Having a hard time to decide between the two the sheik declares a race on the Göta Canal through Sweden, from the capital of Stockholm to the second city of Gothenburg, where the winner gets the order. Pretty soon it becomes obvious that winning does not mean strictly abiding to sea rules and regulations. Written by
I would say there is a tradition in Sweden watching this film... If you haven´t seen it, do that at once! Every big actor in Sweden has a role in this movie, and a couple of not so big actors. The action-scenes are still wonderful and spectacular, a ton of boat- and car crashes, wonderful comedy and a lot of classic lines. A real classic...
