Awful
7 January 2007 | by nickrogers1969See all my reviews

This is an overrated so-called "comedy classic". Many Swedish film legends are in this film but Hasse Alfredsson, Tage Danielsson and Gösta Ekman are very unfunny. They must have written this together one summer night after lots of vodka. The only good thing is that Birgitta Andersson and Monica Zetterlund is in it.

Many Swedes love this film, why, I just don't know. It is a complete mystery to me. Maybe they see themselves when they try to celebrate midsummer.

I hope people in other countries don't think this is the best Sweden has to offer.
