I've read some of the reviews online and this film has gotten a lot of bad ones. I don't understand why. I really don't. This movie is pure genius. It's in my top ten list for comedy films.
Could it be that Swedish humor differs so much from danish humor? Why the bad reviews? I've seen it 4 times. My father around 10 times. :-) It only gets better and better for every time.
If I have to find anything bad to say I guess I would remove all the scenes where one of the characters gets interviewed. I think they don't really add that much to the story and doing so would speed up the tempo of the movie. But it's a small hang up.
This is definitely a must see! I can't see how anyone would think this is a bad movie???? See it now. See it. Now! See it. Just see it.
