Great
9 August 1999 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

A great crazy-comedy from Wam & Vennerød. They show that they can handle more than drama-films. The movie is funny from start to end, and who will forget the scene were Leif Juster tries to escape from the wedding-party to warn the police about two burglars which are planning to rob the house while the party has moved outside.
