Goofs

Casper and Frank start their journey down the river in Ry, and make camp at Bamsebo Camping. Some days later they arrive in Skanderborg. To get from Ry to Bamsebo, which is near the town of Ulstrup, you will need to sail past Skanderborg. The stream in the river is to strong to paddle the other way, so the movie is clearly shot in the wrong geographic order. See more »

Incredibly funny but you wonder if it's safe to laugh
15 January 2013 | by (Manchester, England) – See all my reviews

The film is about Frank; a gullible and dim man who is trying to prove to his girlfriend that he has what it takes to parent a child. A series of events unfold and Frank ends up looking after a 12 year old boy and taking him on a "lads camping holiday". He sees this as his chance to shine and to give the boy a fantastic father like bonding holiday. However there is a festival on and a college trip full of older female students so the mans friend Casper has other ideas. This is a lads break and he will stop at nothing to enjoy it.

As with most outrageously funny comedies it pushes what is acceptable and what is not to the very limit. I wont give any of the key scenes away as it would spoil the film but I will say it's is very similar to Curb Your Enthusiasm in terms of it's comic timing and style - although it steps a lot further over "the fine line" of what is "acceptable".

In terms of story it's non existent and the characters are so over the top you can't really care or feel for any for them in any way. The handful of laugh out loud scenes and dialog totally make up for it and the actors deliver them perfectly.
