Not happening
9 May 2015 | by pejansen-26926See all my reviews

I really liked Anders Baasmo Christiansen in "Børning", and thought I would give this one a chance. Bad idea. This movie is the definition of weak sauce. All the characters are so superficial. You get no real insight what is really going on. Husband is unfaithful, they get a divorce, wife wants him back, husband fights with his new spouse, wife don't want him back anymore.

This movie is not a comedy, but it really isn't a drama either. I really have no clue what it is. It certainly is neither touching, funny nor memorable. Two of the four stars is entirely due to Johnny Logan's unintentionally hilarious cameo. Please leave your brain at the entrance, before you go watch this movie. You won't need it.
