Yö - the best liverock band in Finland is the only good thing played in this movie. One can see worst finnish acting when watching J. Pääkkönen having just one look at his face whatever happens. Some good acting is also seen when Vesa-Matti Loiri (aka Uuno Turhapuro - magnificent comedy roles in over 15 Uuno-movies) gives an excellent rolemodel for fathers... If one hasn't seen any Finnish movie he shouldn't begin with this. I should recommend for example Winter War on Häjyt for starters in Finnish movie. And the name of Vesa-Matti Loiri one should also remember. He acts and sings and is something very finnish. Just like the band mentioned in the beginning.
