Trivia

The movie takes place around a group of men returning to the Army for a refresher training month, in Sweden called "Repmånad". This type of training was normal for countries with conscription armies. Sweden reformed its army into a regular army in the mid 2000's and has not had a refresher training month since the late 1990's. See more »

One of the best Swedish comedies
18 February 2000 | by OffermanSee all my reviews

Every Swedish man who has done their military service loves this movie. It is a humouristic story about a a couple of guys being called back to the military to do their second time. Even if this movie is old, the Swedish military still is pretty much the same and all the jokes can easily be related to my and probably everybody else military service. Go and rent it now!
