Danish movies hit new low.
8 November 2003 | by See all my reviews

Some of the latest Danish movies have actually been worth seeing, but since `De groenne slagtere' the quality has spiralled downwards. Just when you though it couldn't get worse, `Regel nummer et' proves you wrong.

The title means rule number one in Danish and perhaps the producers of this flick should have made their own first rule. `If you have no story, don't make a film'. There is absolutely no story in this film, and the humour that carried American Pie and movies that did not have any story either, just falls through in this case.

The actors in some cases look like they are trying to make fun of them selves; there is no story and no humour. Only bright spot is that Mira Wanting, one of the actors, is cute looking. However, when she stutters through her lines, you crouch down in your seat, and praise yourself that you don't know the poor girl.

So, to sum up; See this flick, if you are manically in love with Mira Wanting, one of the other actors or just loves humour that not even a first grade schoolgirl would regard as funny. If none of this is true for you, spend your money on American Wedding or similar movies. They don't pretend to be anything they're not.
