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. Written by
I was looking forward to having a couple of hours good laugh, and with the plot and the number of talented actors represented in this movie, how could I not? ...But I didn't. Far from. I don't think that either I, nor the friends watching the movie with me laughed even once. So disappointing.
The lines were tacky, the actors mere shadows of their usual talented selves.
I don't know what went wrong. I went to see the director's previous movie, "Blå Mænd" and found it to be refreshingly funny, but this one is JUST NOT FUNNY. It displays the kind of humor Danish movies were full of in the 60s and 70s, but even then they at least seemed to believe in what they were doing. This is not the case in this movie.
One piece of advice: Save your money for something better!
