Very funny at times, but the end is bad
13 September 2010 | by (Borlänge, Sweden) – See all my reviews

Den ofrivillige golfaren is a nice Swedish comedy if you aren't looking for anything special. The acting and the story is mediocre and there's really nothing great about it. On the other hand, it contains some good jokes and it really makes you laugh at times. (Sometimes cause it's so bad (the end))

The good laughs and the mediocre acting and story ends up in a 5/10 rating, I might have given it a 6 if the end was better.

I won't ruin movie for you by telling you why I didn't like the end, but I think that if you see it for yourselves you will agree - it's really bad.
