Storyline

Simon dreams of finding his one true love. Until then, he spends most of his time watching sloppy tearjerkers on video. He also shies away from the shallow young women that he and his friends Micke and Mario meet at bars. But Micke suggests one thing that is a guaranteed babe-magnet: taking a dog out for walks. It's an instant success for Simon, he meets the delightful Mia who immediately takes a liking to him. But things are not always what they may look like. Written by Mattias Thuresson

Pretty decent actually
19 November 2002 | by swedeoliciousSee all my reviews

I went to see this one against what I believed to be better judgement and was rather pleasantly surprised.

It is not by any means a great film or even an effective romantic comedy (the major cons are total predictability in almost every single area and a horribly lame soundtrack) but it has a certain warmth, is laid-back in a somewhat endearing (and at the same time annoying) way and it has a fair share of laughs as well. The acting is surprisingly good for a modern swedish comedy and especially considering the rather inexperienced actors being used. Alexander Skarsgard is truly great as the childish, self-aggrandizing and confounding brat "Survivor-Micke".

To sum it all up it won't stand the test of time, but most of you will be able to enjoy it today (even if you're dragged to the cinema by a chick). 6 out of 10.
