The repetitive jokes get old pretty fast and the characters offer little more in sense of depth
I have really enjoyed Hedberg's stand-up and Hirviniemi's performances on several TV shows. So I was somewhat disappointed that neither comedian had apparently nothing to do with the script that is adapted from a Danish movie of the same premise.
The film is about three middle-aged men that together decide to take a road trip to a class reunion. On the trip, each man is forced to face a personal problem of some sort - more or less involving their love lives.
I'm not offended by adolescent or chauvinistic humor which caused quite an uproar in the Finnish audience when the movie released, but I just had hoped that the script would have had more mature humor _besides_ the obvious dick jokes. The repetitive gags get old pretty fast and the characters offer little more in sense of depth.
