Þór og Danni on a farm
25 March 2006 | by groo-8See all my reviews

this movie is the second in line first one Nýtt líf is a really good comedy, this one uses pretty much the same formula but instead of working in a fish factory they are on a farm, still pretty funny and our heroes are fresh as ever in the art of doing as little as possible for as much money as possible. Made in Iceland in the year 1984 with a tight budget this movie survived the test of time pretty well, not the classic the first movie is but as a follow up and a few laughters this one is up to it. Sigurður Sigurjónsson is one of Iceland's best comedy actors and show his strength in his part here and this is one of his first part in a comedy. Freshly released on DVD in Iceland i recommend a copy for fans of wacky comedy's.
