Out loud funny with a strong psychedelic vibe, fantastic entertainment for drunks!
4 July 2018 | by cafevincentSee all my reviews

I'm shocked to my very core about how low the average rating is, I suspect non-drinkers won't find this funny. You might need that "been there" thing where you've been loaded for days on end. That or maybe it differs from the books and the fans are upset? Or maybe it doesn't translate well for foreign markets? I don't understand because it's honestly THE best, most preciously weird Finnish movie I've seen, ever, and one of the top comedies in the finnish/english speaking world combined. Reminds me of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. If you're the target audience do not miss it, trust me!

Oh, and you might wanna watch it drunk. It's also good for replay value!
