Probably the worst of the bunch
1 June 2004 | by (Nykarleby, Finland) – See all my reviews

I watched this on TV sometime ago and I was appalled. It is clear that Ere Kokkonen has no talent whatsoever, or at least, that he does a masterful job in hiding it.

The film is a mish-mash of various scenes, where the most prolific comedic actors of Finland are waisted. The humor is bland, to say the least. For example, instead of making us laugh, Kokkonen shows ordinary people listening to a radio show laughing. There are no funny jokes to be found here, just laughing people. And radio does not make great cinema. Perhaps Kokkonen for his next film should go to a movie theatre and film the people sitting there...

There is a scene where Uuno Turhapuro talks about film critics in a demeaning way. Why this scene is in the film is obvious: Ere Kokkonen has had his share of bad reviews, so he takes this opportunity to bash the critics in revenge. But it would have been a better revenge if he had simply made a good film. One could say that Vesa-Matti Loiri is the Peter Sellers of Finland, but Ere Kokkonen sure ain't no Blake Edwards. He's more like Niko Mastorakis.

The film ends in a shot of two (!) posters for the next film in the series, "Uuno Turhapuro, Suomen Tasavallan Herra Presidentti". One must give credit to Kokkonen for the warning.
