Storyline

Jesper Jensen is a successful IT salesman who stops at nothing, even if it means backstabbing his best friend. Being number one in the company and having a beautiful wife and a lovely home, Jesper seems to lead a perfect life, but one day his arrogance and self confidence hits him in the face like a boomerang and he loses everything overnight. Jesper is sentenced to do community service at a recycling center with the odd and funny characters Dion, Theodor, and Lotte. At first he looks down on these people and doesn't want to be associated with them. When he begins to loosen up, however, he discovers that he can learn a lot from their straight forward and honest approach to life. Written by Anonymous

Fantastic movie..
22 August 2008 | by See all my reviews

I saw this movie last week in my local cinema, here in Denmark..

I have never laughed more to a movie, like i did to this "Blå Mænd".

I think it's better than every danish produced movie like "Blinkende Lygter", and "sprængfarlig Bombe".

Mick Øgendahl and Sidse Babet Knudsen is acting fantastic, and the humor is so black and good. It will make your grandmother laugh !

It's the money worth.. Take your car, bicycle, MC.. Whatever, and watch this excellent movie..

So i gave it:

10 stars out of 10 stars ! !
