Not much fun...
20 January 2004 | by Lakki_FLYSee all my reviews

..unless you think bad child-actors are hilarious, like I do. Especially Norwegian ones. Set in Oslo, the story is about two teenagers trying to solve a crime-mystery concerning under-aged prostitutes. This movie never gets suspenseful, though, although it tries. I think this is the first of three "Pelle og Proffen" movies, which are all based on Ingvar Ambjørnsens books about two crime-solving teenagers.

Actor Bjørn Sundquist does a somewhat memorable performance, and there are many memorable quotes, at least if you understand Norwegian. Has become a bit of a cult-movie over the years, because of unintentionally funny dialouge and some poor extras and supporting roles, like the character "Filla". The main characters Pelle and "Proffen" both suffer from bad acting, and I don't think the actors ever starred in anything memorable again.
