A really funny movie i recommend
1 February 2007 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

The movie is really funny and nice. The message of the movie is about how foreign people have it in Sweden. The actors act very good but some lines are too long. Lia Boysen fits in very good. Some jokes is not funny, but most of the jokes are fun. The script is good, but very long, it could have been shortened. The environments are beautiful and typical Swedish. The movie is good for all taste, both for children and adults. If you like little odd comedies is this a movie you must see. I like the movie because it was good actors and it was so funny. The script was long, as I said before, but anyway it was good. This is a movie you remember well after you've seen it.
