Sweden's first parody flick is actually very funny!
Most people in the world don't know abut the Beck-series. Mostly swedes and Germans(for some reason) know about it. It is a show about a cop named Martin Beck and his partner Gunvald Larsson, solving crimes in the city of Stockholm. It's a dark show, with some funny moments such as Beck's neighbour always asking Beck if he wants a drink. The problem with the show is that it often becomes unintentionally silly and stupid, and it is very, very, very repetitive. If you watch one of the films you know what's going to happen in the next one. Still, it is part of the Swedish culture, but it is very easy to joke about. Hence, this movie.
This film is about Mårten Späck and Grünvald Karlsson investigating a serial-suicide-killer who's made 6 acts of suicide the past six months, it later turns out that there is a gang of people illegally copying movies(sounds better in Swedish). The jokes are obviously inspired from films like Airplane, Naked Gun and Hot Shots, which is a really nice exchange from movies like Scary Movie, Date Movie, Epic Movie or other Movie-movies. People have given it a lot of bash for being stupid and really uneven, but to tell you the truth, I don't care. I like stupid movies(not Scary Movie stupid, mind you) and most of the jokes are really funny. The Actors are great and in true Leslie Nielsen, they play their parts dead serious(most of them anyway). Some of the jokes fall flat, but they are easily forgiven.
Don't expect Mel Brooks or Airplane, but still enjoy this very funny parody.
