Funniest Swedish movie ever!
22 February 2008 | by spaderknacktSee all my reviews

This movie is the funniest movie i have seen in a long, long time. I could not stop laughing. The jokes in this movie is AMAZING. Yes AMAZING with big letters. The acting is okey. Not bad. Just okey. But don't care about the acting in this movie! This movie has so many other bright sides so you don't even care about the acting. You just keep laughing at Morgans funny quotes. I think that this movie will make a big success in Sweden. Perhaps in Norway and Dennmark to. But especially in Sweden. You will keep laughing all over the movie, and i can promise you that you wont be disappointed! I give this movie 9 out of 10. A little bit more speed in this movie and it would be a 10.
