Trivia

The employee in the G-Sport store is Anders Baasmo Christiansen. Christiansen gained about 40 pounds to be in the lead role in the first draft of Fatso. When the production was halted he was left overweight, so he took this role as kind of a revenge to still be in a Fatso movie. See more »

Not just a funny movie
7 December 2019 | by andreaspersson-29328See all my reviews

I've lost count of how many times I've seen this movie. I think it has all: really great characters, a good storyline, wonderful music, Wes Anderson-esque visuals... It also has a way deeper message than one expects at first glance. I absolutely love this movie and I was really surprised to find out that it has recieved a lot of criticism. Maybe people watch this movie expecting only laughs, and in that case I can understand why people are a bit let down. But it's not just a comedy - it's a movie that wants you to think and try to relate to the characters and their strenghts and weaknesses. I would say that this is a dark drama comedy that shouldn't be judged by it's funny moments. One of my favorite movies of all time - and that's really not a joke.
