No-brainer comedy
8 December 2006 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

The story line was very straight forward and easy to follow and contained a lot of no-brainer comedy to a point where it just got boring. Some of the audience seemed to find it funny but I like more intelligent humor.

There were several known Swedish actors in the movie and their performance were decent considering the script. Lena Endre was good looking as always.

I don't remember the original movie so I can't say if it's better or worse.

If you enjoy movies like Sällskapsresan this movie might be worth taking a look at.
