One of the funniest movies made
21 February 2005 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

When I saw this movie the first time I thought it was soso. Since I'm a listener to Mike Oldfield I thought I'm going to give another chance. I looked at it again this time when I wasn't tired. What a super movie! The jokes gets so lost in the translations so you shouldn't watch it if can't follow the English. Obviously you have to have a certain sense of humor to really appreciate a movie like this. It's not the plumpness in the jokes made by Jake's partner but instead the total charm of these dim-wits who try to make it. I told my friend at the pub about the last joke "as long as I have a face..." and I got a couple of good laughs from some girls that overheard our conversation. A movie I really recommend.

Cheers
