This movie refers to the series with Kurt Olsson, and it couldn't have been done better.
24 July 2002 | by See all my reviews

Simple one of the best Swedish comedy's ever made. Many grate performances, especially from Lasse Brandeby. As Kurt olsson he is nonchalant, arrogant, have class and dignity, and make all one-liners superb. Lasse Brandeby even plays the role as Kurts father, Olle. It's quit comical to see this two characters arguing to each other, with in mind that the two of them are played by the same person. In small roll we have the grate actor Per Oscarsson. As Gun we can see the hilarious Ulla Skog. This movie refers to the series with Kurt Olsson, and it couldn't have been done better.
