A superb sex comedy.
After six seasons of spinning sidesplittingly awkward social situations for their Danish sitcom Klown (or Klovn), creators and stars Casper Christensen and Frank Hvam took their degenerate odd couple to the big screen in a movie that will give The Hangover a run for its money for most outrageous boys-will-be-boys comedy. This hysterical lost weekend laughfest is already slated for an American remake at the hands of Danny McBride and Hangover director Todd Phillips, but it's hard to imagine theirs will be able to top the original, which takes sex comedy antics to new heights of manchild mayhem and new lows of deranged debauchery.
Klown begins with stoic schlub Frank and sex-crazed metrosexual Casper planning a canoe trip they dub the "Tour de Pussy" that'll end at an exclusive once-a-year bordello, and involve much drinking and drugs en route. But when Frank discovers his girlfriend is pregnant but considering termination since she thinks he's not ready to be a father, he decides the way to prove her wrong is show his fatherhood potential by kidnapping her 12-year-old nephew Bo and dragging him along on the "Tour de Pussy." While he begs his friend to tone down the debauchery, Casper outright refuses making for a wild trip unlike American audiences have ever seen.
Though slower-paced than American comedies, Klown has a deft comedic timing that tips you toward a joke moments before, making your anticipation of it feed its ultimate-and often ultimately obscene-payoff. From naked photos, to threesomes, and "man flirting," Klown is an insanely raunchy yet strangely sweet story about friendship and fatherhood that is blisteringly hilarious and totally satisfying.
