I don't think women and seamen mix, sir
15 July 2010 | by See all my reviews

I guess the fact that this is about sailors should tip us off. Does it get more machismo and less women-friendly? Around the time of this, feminism was on the rise. Piger I Trøjen was among the pictures that explored it and were open to the idea. This, too, puts a girl in an environment where no double-XX's were allowed. The main difference is that here, while Else is partially liberated, she is, at her core, basically just a homemaker and weak, and her romance is based on him being an ass and her softening him up. Grünwald is not particularly convincing here... maybe he disagreed with that idea of the genders, maybe he learned the craft later or at least improved. And yes, the two other members of The Olsen Gang are here, as well. Sprogøe does the bossy leader routine that we know and love, and Bundgaard is doing one of his two extremes, here, the angry and loud(even tapping into his opera singer experience and performing here and there in this) guy(as opposed to the meek and fumbling one). Many other Danish names are here, and several do well. You can't go entirely wrong when you have Strøbye be furious about something, and they don't, if this has nothing on his appearances as a detective complaining about "the system" in aforementioned gangster comedy series. There is energy and a dynamic quality to the dialog, at times ruined by the mindless pandering(it can be downright irritating, there are chunks of this where it is boring) to an audience largely ignorant of how it is to be at sea. The smooth fast-talking does garner deserved laughs, especially from the verbal material that is a nice change from the silliness and goofy music(and yes, this is from back when our movies had friggin' theme songs). Little happens in this, and at an hour and 50 minutes, substance would have made a world of difference. This overstays its welcome by at least a quarter of its running time. To attract the young males, this has bikini-clad ladies(who are, admittedly, cute) and a big fight(where stuff gets broken) between us and the Swedes. Ah, it isn't entirely devoid of a reason for existence. Other than being a time capsule, showing the culture as it was back then, this takes us, however briefly, to other countries, including Africa and a decently filmed Bangkok. The blue-screen effect that makes an appearance or two is obvious. There are a couple of sexual images and upskirt shots in this. I recommend this solely to those who want to experience cinema from my country from back then. This is a typical farce of ours, and thus does not age well and is not a terribly good feature. 5/10
