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 »

Goofs

On the DVD release the opening credits are remade and contain several mistakes such as "Regissör" (the Swedish word for director) being misspelled as "Regisör", and "Tore Tallroth" being misspelled as "Tove Tallroth". The Blu-ray release features the original credits without any of these errors. See more »

User Reviews

 
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!
