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 »

Very Amusing if cringeworthy Danish comedy
29 August 2016 | by (London,United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Frank Hvam plays frank who is one of those man child type of characters. His long suffering wife thinks time may make him grow up but then she gets 'in the family way' and realises he is not that much kop in the father department. So she ropes in a young relative called Bo who is 13 who has some confidence issues.

She wants Frank to look after his young charge to prove he is going to be a good father. The big however is that his best buddy has planned a canoe trip that is intended to take in some of the more 'seedier' sights along the way – what happens is a full on un pc fest.

I really like this it is gross in places and pushes the boundaries of taste but it does so in a really good way. It is a coming of age tale too but all wrapped up in some well acted and conceived scenarios. There is a fair bit of nudity too but all in context – and there is a follow up too – recommended unless you are easily offended.
