Trivia

Goofs

The whole film revolves around the head of the Icelandic Eurovision committee not wanting the country to win because if they win, the country will have to host the following year, at great financial cost. Whilst it's a tradition that the winning country hosts, they can actually nominate another country if they are unable to do so. See more »

Couldn't stop smiling at the happy madness of it all
12 July 2020 | by onepictSee all my reviews

Admit I'm not a Will Ferrell fan at all, his movies are all about him, but in this movie, Rachel Adams and Dan Stevens are a revelation of singing and comic talent. SO many great faces from the Eurovision Song Contest as well as cast members from the Witcher, The Norsemen etc. I realised by the time of the Eurovision party singalong that I was laughing out loud. The costumes, the dancing, are all insanely inspired. And as an Edinburgh native, thank you for filming here in Edinburgh! As I frequently direct Americans to the nearest Starbucks, thanks for the laugh out loud asides. Now time to put on my Icelandic elf slippers from my second favourite country in the world, and watch it again.
