There's good and bad
2 September 2007 | by kroeyerSee all my reviews

The movie has a funny and relevant point. You should be entertained at least now and then with this movie, and maybe get a few small surprises. It kicks off right from the first minute and you are quickly introduced to the plot. The acting from Louise Mieritz, Marie Caroline Schjeldal and Rasmus Botoft however is terrible, in contrary to Søren Pilmark who does an excellent job. They just don't seem convincing and you can't help being a bit frustrated of how bad it is. All in all it is a watchable but not memorable movie. There is a few laughs but you won't be going all crazy. I would certainly not recommend this as a buy, but it might work out for renting without causing too much disappointment.
