A sales agent of prank items, a real prankster, is returning to Denmark by ferry, when his bag is exchanged with a secret agent's bag. He ends up as a not so secret agent - bringing fun into the otherwise serious spy business.
The small community of fictive Danish island, Bomø, find out that the dog Bølle can predict the results of every football match. Soon everyone play the results of Bølle but this is threatening the state.
2 lazy brothers, living on their parents' old farm, go to Copenhagen for advice after their sister threatens to sell the profitless farm. They bring a waitress home from the city to help them run the farm profitably.
The first one was popular, so unfortunately, this was made. Viffer is now with the mafia(, and he doesn't want to be anymore(for reasons never explained), so he pulls one of his cons for them only to run with the money. Chased by them and Strøbye's(being astonishingly unfunny... same for Kaas as the partner in crime of our lead) gang, hired by the sheik(can you say "extremely culturally insensitive"? No? How about "outright racist", then?) who was tricked(into purchasing our Round Tower, or "rundetårn"), he... uh, hopes that everything will blow over. The plot again has a ton of developments, and the story-telling is remarkably poor, so you'll have trouble keeping track(especially with how far-fetched several of them are, to the point where you stop caring what happens(pretty early on, in fact) because suspension of disbelief fails to be sufficiently extensive). Costumes are almost too gaudy at times. The humor tries way too hard, and the goofy material and silliness gets to be farcical and really forgettable at points. There is still cleverness, and Passer being over the top gets laughs. This hardly mocks anything interesting... hippies, I guess? Oh, and the Don and his surroundings, taking away the one rock that made everything else effective in the original(if you don't have someone playing it straight, the weird stuff isn't as out of place, it just means that it isn't taking place in the real world). I think they recast one of the two silent goons, and they're just not as good. Honestly, in this, our love-letter to the US and their style is just embarrassing. Ulf Pilgaard as the neurotic psychologist is great, and one of the best things about this. The mix-ups and misunderstandings are impossible to take seriously, and the ending makes no sense. Passer has moments, but you can do better. There is a little suggestive material and brief female nudity in this. The DVD comes with a trailer. I recommend this solely to those who want more after the '73 one, or of Dirch. 5/10
