Storyline

Jesper Jensen is a successful IT salesman who stops at nothing, even if it means backstabbing his best friend. Being number one in the company and having a beautiful wife and a lovely home, Jesper seems to lead a perfect life, but one day his arrogance and self confidence hits him in the face like a boomerang and he loses everything overnight. Jesper is sentenced to do community service at a recycling center with the odd and funny characters Dion, Theodor, and Lotte. At first he looks down on these people and doesn't want to be associated with them. When he begins to loosen up, however, he discovers that he can learn a lot from their straight forward and honest approach to life. Written by Anonymous

Best Danish comedy this year!
31 July 2008 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie at Roskilde Festival 2008 and I'm going to see it again at a preview, a week before the official release date! This movie is so funny. I was laughing the whole time. Danish actor and co-script writer Mick Øgendahl has without a doubt created a movie that is set to go on as a Danish comedy classic, such as Sprængfarlig Bombe and Blinkende Lygter.

The plot is easy to follow and isn't confusing at all if you just pay a little attention. It's easy to understand but the movie is about the lovely trash-humor that is just hard not to laugh at.

This is definitely worth a watch!
