Goofs

There is no gravel road on the route from Húsavík to Reykjavík (at the very least not the route a bus would go). When the bus is seen travelling past Goðafoss waterfall it is on a small eventual mountain road that does not take you to Reykjavík. The actual route does indeed go past Goðafoss waterfall but it is on the other side of it and is fully paved. See more »

Honestly, better than I expected
26 June 2020 | by DreamLighterSee all my reviews

My expectations were low, I love Will Ferrel but his movies are often shallow and stupid and rarely touches you. This one is not deep and smart, that is not what I'm saying! But it is well made and has a lot of heart in it that balances the shallow and stupid quite good. Add on top of that the end performance by Rachel McAdams, the sweetest actress in all of Hollywood, and you suddenly find yourself cheering for a fictional Icelandic band in a fictional Eurovision contest in this feel good movie of crazy corona summer of 2020. Well done! Well done indeed!
