Bof! Boring and not funny
29 May 2014 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I was expecting a funny road movie. The ridiculous title which I suspect no one outside of Iceland can pronounce or remember is a red flag. Dany Boon was great in his earlier films Bienvenue chez les Ch'tis and Rien a Declarer. Those were relatively funny movies.

This flick is not funny. Also the story line doesn't make sense. Example:with mass transit what it is in Europe why would the main character rent a a Porsch for 4000 euros (the only car available)when he could have easily gotten to the wedding by train?

The movie is composed of a series of arguments, ambushes and intrigues between Dany and his ex-wife. All rather humorless,irritating and silly. None of the wit of a Neil Simon script nor the bite of Edward Albee's George and Martha in ...Virginia Woolf. I guess I could have missed a good line or two because I have to admit I did doze off a while. If you have 90 minutes to burn and absolutely nothing else to do go ahead and watch it.
