After several years of TV and a couple of movies the Kummeli gang releases this gem. The cultural clash of rich people from the big city and poor hillbillies on the countryside couldn't be bigger and funny moments are ensured. Some characters are funny in every scene ( every member of the rock band Cobra ) and you have usually no idea of where a story or "sketch" will end up. Some scenes drag out a little to long and the whole movie lack speed in the middle. I watched this with a friend that speak Finnish fluently and some jokes get lost in translation. It is cheesy, vulgar, crude and quite funny - much better than most movies from Hollywood that are called comedy nowadays at least. As with the early Adam Sandler movies, this is satire that leaves you with a warm feeling in the end.
