Storyline

When Anders Bo begins his new job as a car salesman, he is given the special task of infiltrating the small competing car shop, Holger's Auto during their annual Christmas party and steal their customer file. As Anders Bo romps through the commotion and antics of the celebration, he realizes that his assignment in fact relates to an old family feud and that the odd and funny characters working there might have more to offer than meets the eye - especially Amalie, the beautiful daughter of the owner, Holger. In the middle of Christmas pudding and Christmas cheer Anders Bo suddenly learns to listen to his heart.

Not for kids - thank god
10 November 2009 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

Finally a Danish Christmas movie that doesn't include children and their divorced parents, who are searching for the greater meaning of life, trying rekindle long lost love and at the same time, once again, understanding that Chrismas is about sharing and being nice to one another. Duh. There's a thousand of those movie out there.

Thankfully, this movie is not that. This one has elements of the spirit of Christmas, admitted, except it's seen through the bottom of an emptied glass of snaps.

What I dug the most about Julefrokosten was that it never tried to be anything other a really good laugh - and hilarious it was. The cast did an amazing job, and even though it's not a film, which leaves you pondering about the greater meaning of life, there was still depth to many of its characters; you identified and sympathized with them.

Do yourself a favor and go see this little marvel. You'll have a blast. 10/10
