Absolutely horrible
9 October 2001 | by dick.spencerSee all my reviews

There are three reasons to not see this movie: 1. It stinks. It's thoroughly silly and stupid. The acting is totally worthless, and the script is almost as exciting as drying paint. 2. It's supposed to be a movie for youths, but the moviemakers seem to think very low about young people while making a movie like this. Do they think that we totally lack intelligence? 3. There are so many other swedish moviemakers that you should support instead of these. Please don't encourage these kinds of movies.

I can't even tell people to go see this for a good laugh - it's too bad for that. No one should punish him-/herself through this.
