Storyline

Jack is pleased with himself. He has just decided to stop screwing anything with a pulse and cut back on his enthusiastic drug use. That same night his best friend Glenn crashes into a moose on the Swedish border doing his last heist. Glenn is found by the police with a hoof buried in his forehead and 3,8 kilos of cocaine in the trunk. Over the next 24 hours, Jack loses his house, his job, his girlfriend leaves him with their daughter and someone tries to kill him. He is now struggling to save the lives of the very few people who love him, including his daughter. And as he is about to find out: when you think you have hit rock bottom, it can always get worse. Written by SF Norge /PBH

Not terribly impressed
20 May 2016 | by Seth_Rogue_OneSee all my reviews

A Norwegian attempt at what I assume is supposed to be a fast paced thriller comedy crime caper in the style of Tarantino.

But it's just not particularly thrilling, or funny.

I mean it's not terrible, when Lennart Jähkel and his 2 henchmen are in the picture it's fairly entertaining but it has too much moping about going on which just takes away from the suspense and comedy that could have been.

So yeah it takes itself too seriously a lot, when it really doesn't have the substance to make that believable.

If you want to watch a entertaining Norwegian film watch "Børning (2014)" instead, which Anders Baasmo Christian is also in.
