I suppose I should have known to stay away
31 December 2010 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

Set ten years prior to Dinner for One, known in this country as 90 års fødselsdagen(the 90 year birthday), this has all the members of the party alive, and them being closer to Danish than British(with a Greenlander as a guest, for example... Schneider remains German). That's basically it. The material focuses on our island instead of theirs, and is every bit as corny, lame, crude and just plain dumb as the worst of what we've produced, making the contrast to their clever, refined and at times subtle take on pratfall comedy and drunkenness. Yes, the real one is simplistic... but it's still carefully crafted. This has people delivering over the top performances, it starts out not funny and then gets to be intolerable. The characters change back and forth between old and useless and youthful and quipping. They actually left in someone breaking from the role and laughing. Do they have a word for that kind of sloppy editing from a supposedly expert production nowadays? And with the ending spelling out the *excellent* joke of the conclusion of the original, the short length is the one redeeming quality to this(and it manages to be quite disgusting). There are two ways to do parody; you can show respect to the source material and acknowledge what it might have going for it, or you can be a jackass and merely mock and ridicule what you might not understand or be able to appreciate yourself. This proves itself to be squarely in the latter category right from the first frame with a horrible replicated set that looks nothing like the original(and seeing as how the '63 one is shown every year on New Year's Eve and has been for decades, I hardly believe that they couldn't go check how close the resemblance was). The editing and camera-work are subpar. I recommend this to fans of Casper Christensen and Frank Hvam... it's for them. 1/10
