Mats' trousers have become dirty of oil, but he finds another pair of trousers on the quay. To his big surprise he discovers that he can take one banknote after another, in an endless stream, from the right pocket of his new trousers. He and David go on a shopping spree, but when they involve the girl Livli in their secret, they understand that they should use the money for more noble purposes.

A really horrible movie kids shouldn't watch
24 April 2016 | by BelzehbubSee all my reviews

The "bonus" son got this for his 7th birthday from his mom. We watched it and I got so mad I had to leave the room!

It felt horrible having the kids watch when bigger kids use foul language, put other people in jeopardy, have no love for family, no empathy and are obviously raised by chimps.

I had to sit and see kids bribing homeless people to do the kids work ( summer work for kids) and at the same time they're mocking the homeless people and eating snacks on a bench.

My partner actually told me the movie got even worse, I couldn't finish it because I got furious.
