Storyline

13-year old Sofie has too much to drink at a party and falls asleep. The immature guys from her school take some compromising photos of her being drunk and knocked out and hands them out at school. Quickly she has a reputation of being easy and promiscious and her two best friends, Amanda and Emma, avoid her. She must learn to fight back and regain the confidence her dad has instilled in her before she can put things right again. Written by Mattias Thuresson

Not more than a good point
26 July 2004 | by scobbahSee all my reviews

'Hip Hip Hora' is a Swedish movie with a good message - but it does not have what it takes to succeed into the viewers hearts. It reminds a whole lot of "Fucking Åmål", who is also a movie about the teenage youth, the search of who you really are and everything who comes with it. This piece feels like a wannabe piece of "Fucking Åmål", less attractive but with the same message bound into a different story with different characters. The worst thing is that I think the main actress really sucks, but instead all other actors around her do their job supreme, big up's for unknown actors who completes their task like this! In general, it felt like a Hollywood piece and I'm not going to see this one again. OK it's worth it's shot, it has a good message but it lacks that magic that makes us remember it.
