One of the worst films ever
18 September 2008 | by lohhariSee all my reviews

This film was definitely one of the worst I have ever seen. I have always been a fan of the Kummeli sketch series and have enjoyed some of the previous movies, but this one was all different.

The problem with sketch comedy may often be that the jokes are not funny enough. That was not the case with this movie, since it barely had any jokes at all. Apparently the makers had figured that a couple of outrageously homosexual men are enough to make people laugh for nearly two hours.

The plot is very simple and not enough to make the movie a serious attempt at drama, and I seriously doubt that was the intention. I suggest you do not waste any money to see this, and even if you can see it for free, do something better with your time.
