I’m not entirely sure about this film. I don’t remember ever watching a Danish comedy before. Especially not one based on an existing television series. Klown Forever is hilarious and disgusting. Add to the above list, I don’t remember ever watching a film with this many scenes with male genitals.

When Casper moves to Hollywood his pal Frank goes after him because their relationship has been strained over the release of a friendship book they had written together. I really imagine that all of this would make a lot more sense if I had a preexisting relationship with these characters. But I don’t.

The film reminds me of a Chris Farley movie. There is a lot of outrageous physical comedy and some very funny scenes but I really don’t see the point. I am not going to say that you should, or should not, watch this film. I will say that does have some very funny scenes that you will recount to your friends. Especially the Adam Levine scene and the dog scene, I’d rather let you find out about them yourselves, if you dare.
