Goofs

At the beginning when images of the Eurovision Song Contest 1974 are shown, the voice of the British commentator is heard, despite the fact that the family watching the show is in Iceland. The British commentator's voice could have only be heard in the British transmission by the BBC, in the United Kingdom, so the family couldn't have heard that voice at all. The Icelandic commentator's voice should have been heard instead (or no commentator at all), if Iceland had transmitted the contest at all, since they didn't participate in the competition up until 1986.

Doesn't take itself too seriously
7 July 2020 | by annika-ac-brinkSee all my reviews

I expected to HATE this movie and almost turned it off after 10 minutes, but so glad I didn't! This movie is filled with stereotypes, which was a little distracting in the beginning. Isn't this offensive to the people of Iceland?? Then I did my research and found out that it's actually mostly foreigners who think it's offensive to Iceland, while Iceland gets the joke and is having a laugh. Stereotypes and over the top performances ARE Eurovision, so I ended up being glad they ran with it. They had some good Eurovision classic references in there and it was just an overall feel-good movie. I don't remember the last time I actually laughed out loud at a movie from the sheer sillyness of it. It wasn't a so bad it's good type of situation, but just genuinely an enjoyable movie.
