Well, that's the same thing (will that line be funny if we keep repeating it?)

5/10

This stars Anders "Anden" Matthesen, a multi-talented creative person here in Denmark. He's well-known for his aggressive style especially as a stand-up comedian, but he is also at times corny, and this is the least appealing example of that. The six stories are unconnected(he does a goofy voice in at least one, I guess to make it stand out?). First one, he's ruining his girlfriend's birthday by not letting her rich family have it, and by insulting them repeatedly when they show up. In the second one he's trying to get laid on a camping trip in the woods by his adult students(for some reason not focusing his efforts on the one that came just to sun-bathe) in a course on Greenland(and he goes out of his way to mock their culture). Third one has him running a bad radio program because he won a Reality Show(and we get our one decent joke: "Why did you appear in this?" "I want to be famous!", unfortunately, it's got Pernille Aalund... also, the "fake audience" is pathetic) and thinking he's well-known. The fourth one has him being someone bad with children having to entertain them(it makes "fun" of the weird things people do when learning to perform). Fifth one has him as a clairvoyant... and that's kind of it(he seems to be for real? Well, he has problems with girls in it). And the sixth one is about a guy trying to "youth up" a library, and people don't like it. That last one ends with bloopers from them, the other five have clips from the next episode. Several of them are about getting poontang. The length per is 27-28 minutes. He and the other ones that are in more than one of these(thank goodness Rune Klan wasn't one of those) portray a new character each time(and they tend to be convincing, and one who is a sex-bomb in one is "boring" in another). This is about people being jerks. They're not misunderstood, they're simply rude and obnoxious. You know the bits in sit-coms where people do embarrassing things? This is all that, sans explanations for why they're doing it. It isn't funny. We get really lame verbal humor(at times disgusting). There is some black comedy, and it tends to be extreme. I'd rather not provide examples. The acting is not bad, I suppose. It's the writing that leaves all of these roles as flat, empty stereotypes. This is fine from a technical stand-point. And, well, at least the rock theme tune is kinda cool. The DVD comes with a 23 minute extra called Dummy(a dumb mockumentary about street artists). I recommend this to... I don't know. Those who find this kind of stuff amusing. 5/10
