my family talked me into taking my younger cousin to see this, so we went to the cinema. i have read some reviews in the newspapers about it, so i didn't expect that much, but i was at the same time curious. the story is a classic crime story, a little in the style of the "Olsen banden" franchise. it wasn't that interesting, mainly because we never learn about the characters. the one has a kid, the other is on probation and the last one (played by Mick øgendahl), is an annoying s**t. but despite that, was the idea to use some criminal methods in style of the Olsen banden, quite interesting. its sad that they didn't pull it better of. the acting is pretty bad, especially from the supporting characters and Mick øgendahl. his role was basically to play retarded. in a way it works, but man is his character annoying. being a comedy, i will say that it fails, but not 100%. the humor is really bad, its basically just Mick doing the kind of things a clown in a circus would do. but i must say, that some of the jokes told by especially rasmus bjerg, were pretty good. and as mentioned before you will pretty soon get tired of Mick's character. thats the reason how delightful it is to see him getting a good beating up, thats the highlight of the movie. one of my main critic points is also the ending, where you see one of the main characters hook up with a lady, that i suppose was his love interest. but i never figured out because. 1. she had so little screen time, that i couldn't recognize her. 2. they only had the experience of chancing a diaper, thats romantic i must say. thats leads me to another point. the terrible writing of the story. i could see that Mick øgendahl had a large part in the writing. having seen some of his other work I'm not surprised. he really sucks in making movies. he is a good stand up comedian, and should stick with that, instead of making bad movies. all in all, i can only recommend this movie if you are a hardcore fan of Mick øgendahl, find circus clowns and bad slapstick entertaining, or you are 12 years old like my cousin (who liked it a lot). so 4/10, but only because i could hear some in the audience enjoy the movie (probably slapstick fans).
