"Boston Gurka! det smakar ju skit!"
10 August 1999 | by (Vasteras, Sweden) – See all my reviews

Great dialogues and stunning stunt scenes makes you gonna say "suck mee sideways" (from Jim Carreys Dumb & Dumber). Killer comments like "Lite Boston Gurka på toppen" and "Boston Gurka! det smakar ju skit!" makes the film even better. The actors does a good and convincing job, makes you want to see the film one more time.
