Storyline

Sickan, Vanheden and Rocky try to rob the Berns nightclub one night, but Vanheden has made the mistake to invite his constantly drunk cousin, the old dynamiter Dynamite-Harry and he ruins the plan. Sickan is arrested, and has to spend 10 months in a small, locked room. When he is released, he has a new plan, but Rocky and Vanheden have decided to go straight. Together with Dynamite-Harry, Sickan plans to rob a cold store, managed by their arch-enemy, Wall-Enberg. Written by Mattias Thuresson, corrected by Martin Ruist.

Trivia

The logotype of the fictitious company "Polarfrys AB" which can be seen behind Sickan when he is locked in the cold storage looks exactly like the logotype for the production company Nordisk Film/Nordisk Tonefilm (it is a polar bear standing on top of a globe). See more »

Gösta Ekman made this movie
8 October 2006 | by (El Paso!) – See all my reviews

(r#80)

Make no mistake: this is a Swedish movie and it is a sequel among many other sequels, to a crime comedy which wasn't all that good in the first place. It's not exactly Kubrick, or even Schumacher for that matter, but it is a fun little film that doesn't try to be anything it isn't. It also has one of the best endings ever in a comedy. The cast is excellent; the combined comic talents of Gösta Ekman, Björn Gustafsson, Nils Brandt and Ulf Brunnberg make a rather mediocre script much funnier on-screen than it has any right to be. Ekman is at the top of his game as Charles-Ingvar "Sickan" Jönsson and as usual, he's got a plan - timed and ready, down to the tiniest detail.

The plot is not important in a movie of this kind - it's all about the performances from the main actors, and they're hilarious. Their dedication to their characters is more than the movie deserves, and it really makes it a pleasure to watch.

Love them or hate them, the Jönssonligan movies are a part of Swedish culture. This series isn't exactly high art - it's just a pretty funny franchise. If you can forget that this series spawned a myriad of awful kiddie comedy sequels, you will enjoy this flick. Besides, where else can you see Gösta Ekman as a German businessman??
