    It can seem sometimes that Hollywood has a monopoly on stupid, obnoxious comedy. Anyone who sees Klown will learn otherwise. Comedy can be just as stupid and obnoxious in Danish.

    An ostensible Danish "Hangover" that more closely resembles "Two and a Half Men" with nudity and unexpurgated dick jokes.

    Klown is a dark, bawdy Danish comedy following three deeply flawed, yet somehow sympathetic, male characters on an ill-fated canoe trip. In general, I like Danish comedies, and while not nearly as genius as the movies written and directed by Anders Thomas Jensen, this had its great moments. The main character Frank is on a mission to prove to his girlfriend that he could be a good father, but since doing so involves kidnapping her per-adolescent nephew to take him on "Tour de **** Frank's efforts are ridiculous. But what made this movie far more enjoyable than it might have been is that by the end you're not really laughing AT Frank anymore but cheering him on as his efforts to connect with the boy become ever more extreme. I recommend Klown to anyone who is not easily offended by risque humor and enjoys comedy with a different rhythm and aesthetic than main stream Americana. Full Review »
