Call me an elitist (which I'm not), but I don't usually enjoy this series. The reasons are evident here as well: the acting is taken overboard or is otherwise bad, this feels tedious and an hour longer than it actually is, and, most importantly, the humour doesn't quite do it for me - which is an understatement. But unlike some installations of the franchise, this one isn't painful to watch.
In fact, I was occasionally even amused. There are some surprisingly good lines ("Don't talk outta your arse: those are potatoes!") and better in-jokes, situations and line-delivery than in your average Uuno. Heck, I was amused by the ridiculously bad critic jokes during the concert. "Rysslandia"...
This is by no means a good film, but Spede's directing is much better than that of Kokkonen. He is also in the best scenes (what an ingenious disguise Härski uses, eh?). And I have to admit there's some perverse amusement to be gained from him playing a fridge.
