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

Awesome movie, Stomic cramps from laughing
1 September 2008 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

This is a awesome movie, I got stomach cramps from laughing and so did my wife and most of the people in the movie theater.

It's really a good simple comedy, with sweet storyline, about being to competitive to appreciate the important things in life.

This movie is co-written by one of denmark's best comedians (if not the best), and it really transcends in the movie. You are in no time in doubt about this being a comedy, the time between laughs can in the second part of the movie, be a little longer, but it have to be so, because your stomach wouldn't be able to handle it otherwise.

A really funny comedy.
