A horrid creation that should have never been
18 May 2020 | by odopalmgrenSee all my reviews

A movie based on a popular comic? Ok seems average. The Comic consist of 3 panel Puns? Hard to imagine a movie based on this.

The whole movie is just the most popular fingerpori-pun-jokes in live action. The movie is made in a way that gives nothing to the story. Characters interact like they were characters of a comic. Plot is nonexistent and acting bad. The format of the movie is 4 stories from residents of Fingerpori, but the twist is that the stories have already been seen in the comics. Nothing is achieved by making a movie copy-paste from the comic strips: Everybody has already laughed at those jokes.

Only reason this movie exist is the fact that Finnish culture makes it possible to a movie make a few bucks just based on the fact the concept is familiar and likeable. Somebody might see an ad of this movie and think that "I might watch this. Maybe it has a few great new jokes now that it is a whole brand new movie". I hope that no one has actually watched this with high expectations and got disappointed by the unoriginality.

I would not recommend this movie to anybody who has ever seen a fingerpori comic. If you have never seen anything fingerpori related (you live in an other country) u won't cry yourself to sleep, mostly because the jokes work only in finnish. Please do not waste your time watching this movie, you will make a favor to yourself.
