Probably one of the most underrated swedish movies ever!
2 April 2004 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

Well... First time i saw the swedish comedy Zingo I loved it, it was so goddamn funny from start to end, that I even loved it the second time I saw it, and the third and the fourth...

Mostly every actor is playing good in this movie, especially Tommy Andersson, for his role as "Jocke", and of course, Thomas Hellberg as "Ken Karlsson".

The movie is about a young, wild and confused man called Zingo(also well-played by Björn Kjellman), who takes to much drugs but dreams about having a life as a great father in a typical Swedish stereotype family.

But his girlfriend, Baby(Helena af Sandeberg) does not want to change their lives...

One day, Zingo meets his old pal Mos, and then Zingo gets and idea of making a brand new porno movie.

Why the movie is so very funny, is because all the different kinds of people, and situations..

I still can't understand why everyone seemed to hate this movie... I still think that this is one of the funniest Swedish movies ever made.
