Sexcomedies or comedy dramas about human sexuality are very difficult to make. Either they become too lowbrow or not enough explicit so that the movie-going audience will feel satisfied.
This film is really an example who bad things can really be in the world of comedy. Flat dialogue, flawed storyline and scenes that lead up to nothing.
Story is about a young yuppie couple who are having some difficulties in their sexlife. They move to a new neighbourhood where their nextdoor neighbours are family of freewheeling hippies, that love gardening.
Soon these two families will learn from each other....
Swedish comedy films have rarely been any good, with few exceptions. And things aren't very good here.
The screenwriters and the director really wants to explore human sexuality, relationships, middle-class society but ends up doing low brow comedy that would make Andrew Dice Clay red in the face.
Some nudity but done in a very boring, clinical fashion. Non European viewers may be chocked over frontal nudity but europeans will be sligthly bored.
So watch Human Nature (2001), Teeth (2007), Lucía y el sexo (2001), Sex, Lies, and Videotape (1989) instead.
Even highly flawed films like Sirens (1993), The Oh in Ohio (2006)is better then this.
