Lasse Åberg ended the S.H era in a great way...
13 February 2004 | by (Svea Rike) – See all my reviews

I could not agree with Stoffe more. Lasse did a great job as he put an end to the Stig Helmer /Ole Bramserud comedy era. Even though I think it is quite sad that S.H won't be on the screen longer. I have bought all the movies and I would buy the next one if Lasse would be as kind to do another one.

The movie itself is as swedish as possible; everyone focuses on their looks and are trying all kinds of ways to loose pounds. "Hälsoresan" has a great message to the conventional west. If I would rate to movie, comparing to the other four "trips" this is the worst of them. But Hälsoresan is still worth a look and you cannot compare every movie with each other, in that case every movie is bad except The Godfather trilogy.

Aqueritas rate this movie 6,5/10
