Storyline

In this comedy, Lars Lindstrom is an awkwardly shy young man in a small northern town who finally brings home the girl of his dreams to his brother and sister-in-law's home. The only problem is that she's not real - she's a sex doll Lars ordered off the Internet. But sex is not what Lars has in mind, but rather a deep, meaningful relationship. His sister-in-law is worried for him, his brother thinks he's nuts, but eventually the entire town goes along with his delusion in support of this sweet natured boy that they've always loved.

Funny yet emotional and touching
11 February 2020 | by baileyboo-62339See all my reviews

This movie is funny and bizarre at first yet it quickly becomes surprisingly touching. I was not expecting this to be as meaningful and touching as it was. I just thought it was going to be hysterical for the most part but those laughs can quickly turn to tears as the story goes on. How they came up with such a ridiculous idea for a movie and turned it into such a tear jerking masterpiece is beyond me. This movie will make u think about things and how u would react in such a situation in an effort to help a loved one.
