Jesper, top salesman at an IT company, is a bastard. Jesper gets in an accident DUI. He loses his job, his girlfriend and does community service at a recycling center and must adjust to his new surroundings and colleagues.
Viktor is a fireman. Anja finally gets the promotion promised long ago at the advertising agency. She is, however, pregnant and only gets 2 weeks maternity leave so Viktor has to step up and in when the baby comes. Will he be emasculated?

Danish cult author of children's books, Dennis Jürgensen, has one of his first and most memorable books turned into a pitiful, dry and thoroughly un-imaginative film.
The acting is wooden, the dialogue is colorless and the scope is embarrassing. The transformation from book to film is overly cute and bland. The filmmakers had been better off digging out another similar themed Danish film, Busters Verden (1984) by Bille August, and learning a trick or two from this warm and genuinely funny classic.
