Storyline

Kristoffer is a billboard hanger, 24 years old and carefree. When his girlfriend Elisabeth dumps him for the boss of her trend bureau, his life falls into pieces. He feels like a loser. By coincidence some of Kristoffer's video diaries end up with the producer of the popular talk show "Karsten Tonight" in TV2. A few weeks later Kristoffer's life has become TV entertainment. People love the sequences from his commune at Tøyen: Kristoffer's half-twisted view of his surroundings, his crazy best friend Geir, not to mention the weird web designer Stig Inge, who hasn't set foot outside the Tøyen shopping center for two years. Kristoffer's future again looks bright, everyone likes him, but revealing your life on national television comes with a price tag. As Kristoffer's future in the TV business looks brighter and brighter, his friends start suffering. Geir's big secret is revealed, and Stig Inge's personal problems are much more serious than Kristoffer first thought. It will cost him a ... Written by Anonymous

I'm glad i stayed up to see this
14 March 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I was originally planning to go to sleep but then i saw a few minutes of Buddy . I ended up watching it till past midnight. It's about three friends, Kristoffer, Geir & Stig Igne. They live in the "Toyen center " . More information from other comments. Buddy must be one the best heart-warming movies i've ever seen ! I didn't expect this much from a foreign film . I loved the characters , Kristoffer, Henriette, Geir & Stig Igne. They were all very unique and had some great characteristics. Nice acting and i especially loved the ending ! It was more than i expected ! It definitely put a smile on my face. I give it 9/10 and i certainly recommend it to those who would like to see some nice decent romance .
