Great comedy! This is what a "family" movie should be like.
This is one of the best Swedish movies I've seen. Most "family" movies promise to be fun for the whole family but this is one of the few that is able to keep this promise. Sune's family (made famous in the books by Anders Jacobsson & Sören Olsson) plan to go to Greece on their holiday but after a minor mishap at the travel agency, Rudolf (the dad, played by Peter Haber) decides that it's too expensive, so they have a caravanning holiday instead.
It's full of funny moments throughout. Many of those are thanks to Peter Haber who has rightfully received some praise for playing the role of the dad, but all the actors are doing a great job. Gabriel Odenhammar, playing the role of the younger brother Håkan, can also be seen in the popular sitcom "Svensson Svensson". Andreas Hoffer who plays the leading role Sune, hasn't done anything notable after this that I'm aware of, but he suits the role perfectly nonetheless. The famous comedian Robert Gustafsson ("the funniest man in Sweden" according to many) also has a small role.
Besides the funny parts the movie also has a sweet love story. Although there are lots of convenient (plot wise) coincidences the story feels more real than most American romantic comedies. It's really easy to relate to all of the characters which make the story feel more real and the funny parts even funnier.
I recommend this to everybody!
