Trivia

The film deliberately uses well-known appliances and household items as sci-fi props for comical effect. For instance, Kenny's gun is a repainted hairdryer, the bad guys' belt buckles are electrical installation boxes, and some spacecraft are garbage skips, complete with chute lids. See more »

Goofs

While existing in real life, the village of Forserum, where Pontus lives, looks nothing likes the cityscape in the film. For instance, exterior shots at his school were shot in Uppsala - Sweden's fourth largest city. See more »

"Comedy" without funny parts...
10 April 2009 | by See all my reviews

This film features a lot of top Swedish comedians - but somehow manages to strangle their creativity. Despite the film being based on the great TV-series Kenny Starfighter, nothing is even remotely as good as the original. Somebody on this forum compared Kenny Begins with SW 1-3, I tend to agree. A visually superior version of the original - but lacking in story/acting and overall feel.

About the humour: When I saw the movie (with my eleven year old daughter) the cinema audience laughed only three or four times during the entire movie. Sorry but watching Kenny drink shampoo just ain't funny (although it may sound funny). Top joke in the whole film: a computerized voice saying "800 degrees, trust me" (song lyric)...

Bill Skarsgård was probably casted due to his last name, did not display much acting skills. Johan Rheborg looked tired and Björn G. didn't get one single funny line to speak.

Great visual effects, nice props/costumes and über-cool super villains, though.
