A mockumentary about comedian Thomas Giertsen, which has everything: Great girlfriend, big house, lots of cash and funny friends. A perfect life? Still he tends to get in trouble. After all; he's always right.

This is a movie that starts being funny the very first scene and then it continues more or less in that fascion all the way through. A bit bizarre and unconventional but in my opinion that only adds to be positive.
Overall good acting, except for some random side role. The two main actors wonderfully portait the dragged-along "Him" and the very impulsive, free-minded and dominant "Marianne".
The movie took perhaps one turn to many in some subjects and got a bit repetitive. I my opinion it was just on the right side of that balance, it could not have been very much longer though.
This is probably the best romantic comedy I've ever seen. I had a smile on my face all the way home from the cinema, and that is none less than 6 km on a bike through icy streets.
