Trivia

Olaf, the bar patron that aggressively request Jaja Ding Dong on the first bar scene, appear at the end of the movie, again aggressively requesting Jaja Ding Dong.

These were actually the same scene, where they digitally recolored his shirt for the last scene. Although in wide shots you can spot Olaf inside the bar on the first scene, he's nowhere to be found in the last scene. See more »

Goofs

All the counties that were voted in the first 6 country voting, are moving to the top of the list, but also remain in their original position, thus appearing twice. It happened to Greece, Sweden, The Netherlands, Spain, Iceland and Latvia. See more »

Surprisingly Good
5 July 2020 | by Shanners1950See all my reviews

This is worth watching just for Dan Stevens's portrayal of the Russian entrant, Alexander - brilliant acting and worthy of an award. Iceland's Final song is fantastic and I've already saved it in my Spotify playlist - another reason to watch the movie. One of the best lines in the movie for me was about elves taking things too far... had me & my friend in stitches.
