    Summary
    The poster calls this the funniest film of the year. It’s not hyperbole if you’re a fan of the kind of gross-out, uncomfortable humor in The Hangover or TV’s Curb Your Enthusiasm.

    Frank is a single man whose girlfriend has just announced she’s pregnant. He doesn’t want kids, but neither does he want to lose his girlfriend (sound familiar anyone?). She’s threatening an abortion because she’s pretty sure he’s not dad material either. So Frank wants to prove her wrong.

    To do this, he essentially kidnaps 9-year-old Bo and drags him along on a canoe trip organised by Frank’s best friend, the philandering Casper. The canoeing is merely a cover for a trip to Denmark’s best brothel where Casper intends to screw young girls to his heart’s content.

    To give away anything more than this would ruin the experience. The film plays out in an episodic manner, each one revealing more about these two characters – whether it’s stuff we really want to know or not! Klown has run as a TV series in Denmark for six years, so the two lead actors have had plenty of time to get to know these characters inside out and it shows.

    This film is not for the squeamish or the easily offended. It’s crude, disgusting, frequently inappropriate and fiendishly funny.
