In what has to be one of the worst ideas in Christmas party planning history, Swedish house wife Sara decides to celebrate the yuletide season with her three ex-husbands and their families. Though her current spouse Janne initially is quite opposed, he eventually gives in. Then the booze kicks in. Families start infighting. Janne grows increasingly annoyed as the guests make repeated references to having sex with his wife. And during dinner, Sara announces that she is pregnant. This strikes Janne as odd considering that he had a vasectomy a year before. Soon the party devolves into utter chaos. Written by
This is a comedy about a woman inviting all her 4 ex-husbands and their new wives to her Christmas Party. During the party she announced that she was pregnant, but her current husband was sterilised! The husband therefore had to search for the man who impregated his wife.
This film was very funny. The entire hall of viewers kept on laughing, because the film had so many unexpected twists. The good thing about this comedy was that it is very different from the American comedies, which constantly featured people slipped and fell to the ground. The Americans think that falling to the ground is funny, but the Europeans do not think so. Instead the funny scenes here were more sophisticated, more subtled and not vulgar.
Another great aspect of this film was that the actors were very good. The main actress was particularly good because she could show such a variety of emotions according to the mood of the scene. Her acting was not exaggerated, but a normal every day display of emotions. This made her just like an ordinary woman, who could be someone you know. This brought her closer to the viewers.
The main location of the film was in her house. It was a normal house, not lavish, not big. It had a very warm feel, making the film very warm. The viewers could easily relate to this family as a normal family.
Another good point about this film as that the theme of Christmas was not forgotten. Throughout the whole film the Christmas party was going on all the time, with food, drinks and children singing. The festive atmosphere added to the warm feel of the film.
I definitely recommend people to watch this film. It is so funny and entertaining!
