In Sid Wisløff's flashback, where he "solves" his first case, turning in his father for moon-shining, Sid is caught drinking the last Coca Cola in the house. The bottle in the film is shown with a paper label. In the 70's, the time of the flashback, Norwegian Coke bottles had the logo painted on the bottles. They did not have paper labels. See more »
I am from the town that this movie was made in, and I have seen and talked to the director and the actors on several occasions.
I can see that it may be hard for folks that aren't from Norway to get the humor of the film, hell even the people who live in the southern Norway have a difficult time getting it all... So with that said, this movie is maybe not for everyone. It's not meant to be just a parody of Tarantino's "Kill Bill" movies, this film uses lots and lots of local humor which to other viewers may seem very lame.
So I can understand why this movie have got a bad rating here, but if we all came from northern Norway this movie would have 10 Stars :)
