Probably the worst movie ever made (at least in Sweden).
28 February 2002 | by vixenfritzSee all my reviews

The movie deals with various issues like racism, alienation, love and other things that the youth of Sweden are supposed to be interested in. Well, maybe we are but this movie is full of clichés and just plain stupid. The nicest thing I can say about it is that the actors can´t act and the main characters name is John-John. STUPID, STUPID, STUPID movie! Don´t see it, not even if your life is at stake. I wouldn´t at least.
