A bunch of over-aged Finnish teddy boys are doing what such people usually do: completely nothing except attempting to be cool. Of course everything will go wrong as the boys, or just childish grown-up men, want to make their own way. The film has no other point, or plot, unless you count that buying a pizza as such. Rock'n roll music, bad English (one should ask why?), no apparent good manners and some d-class Fonzie outfits will rumble on the scene for a brief time and a good thing is that the viewer is saved from the worst. What the viewer will get is a road movie that remotely resembles Kaurismäki's Leningrad Cowboys films. Here's one movie for you who don't look for too much sense in everything.
