Time Out says

1 out of 5 stars

A good bad-taste comedy needs three things: characters you can empathise with, solid gags and a smattering of heart. This crass, self-consciously outrageous Danish effort leapfrogs all three, leaving a grim, desperately unfunny parade of dick jokes, masturbation jokes, dick jokes, paedophilia jokes, dick jokes, rape jokes, gay jokes and dick jokes.

‘Danish comedy sensation’ Frank Hvam plays Frank, an ungainly nerd whose knees turn to jelly when he contemplates his impending fatherhood. Eager to get in a little parenting practice, he kidnaps his 12-year-old nephew and sets off on a canoeing ‘Tour de Pussy’ with best pal and serial womaniser Casper (Casper Christensen). You can imagine it’s all intended as some kind of self-mocking satire on hapless masculinity, but isn’t that what misogynists always say?

Written by Tom Huddleston
