Semi-bad
15 August 2008 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

The movie seems sponsored by the Swedish police. It is not a comedy at all. I laughed maybe 0 times out of 2 attempts to a joke. That it is advertised as a comedy is a joke in itself.

I think that the actors and the script is okay. I felt that I had to watch the movie until the end. It is worthwhile to discuss in a cultural or political context since it is incredibly politically correct. Almost textbook-like as the females and immigrants become accepted in the police force just as one would suspect the dream situation for the Swedish government is. I usually don't mind but this is too blatant. It reeks of massproduction even though I do hope that the director disagrees.
