It was really good. A little sexual and there was some bad language. Other then that it was great!

It's remarkable how much we come to care for this seemingly unlovable pair; one, a dead-ringer for Rudy from "Survivor", and the other, Jeff Daniels' stand-in for "Dumb and Dumber".

We know that these misfits of society, Elling, a prim and proper shut-in, and Kjell, a ramshackle shut-in, pass muster when the restaurant patrons double as well-wishers after Kjell hangs up the phone and makes an announcement. At first, the scene seems contrived because we know where Elling and Kjell came from. The customers see these two men as normal, while the moviegoer registers this Norwegian odd couple as works in progress. It's a sort of epiphany to realize the work is finished. They fit in. A lot has happened in 89 minutes. When we first meet the old man, he literally comes out of the closet. This movie is as good as A-ha. "Elling" has humor and heart, without the yuks and "Yuck!".
