When "Nalle" and "Mackan" is speaking, they use a form of slang that is very much unknown from anyone outside Stockholm. It's so ironically cunning that in the Swedish television version of the movie, they have subtitles. See more »

A true Swedish classic. (Only it's a French classic)
The first two films in the Sällskapsresan series do not have such an original script as most Swedes would think.
Both of of these are, if not copies, very and I do mean VERY similar to French "Les Bronzés" from 1978 (http://imdb.com/title/tt0077276/) and "Les Bronzés font du ski" from 1979 (http://imdb.com/title/tt0078907/).
It might be a good adaptation but it's not the brainchild of Åberg. This can be seen in the following films in this series where the quality is not even half as good as in the first two. Could lack of "inspiration" be the reason. Now Åberg had to come up with his own script and if you compare the first two with the others you will see the point.
The first two films are however still a good laugh
