One of the worst movies I've ever seen
9 April 2013 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

If you want something to fall asleep to; perfect cure has been found. Seriously, this movie is the most boring 100 min you will have in your life.

The only reason I finished this movie - (accually I closed it but decided to pick up from where I left it the following day) - is because I like Kjell Bergqvist (as Tord) and Olle Sarri (as Jörgen)

I did not even crack a smile during the whole movie, nice "comedy" The acting is awful (except from Kjell and Olle), the story lacks EVERYTHING, the camera work is bad and the color scheme is even worse.

With a budget of ~2M euro (~20M SEK) I guess all was spent on the casting, because the aesthetics, provisions, gear clearly screamed budget.

Don't watch this garbage.
