Kenny Begins (2009)
With a premise that recalls Dean Parisot's 1999 Galaxy Quest, the goofy Swedish-language sci-fi farce Kenny Begins concerns the Galaxy Hero Academy, where students train to qualify as space adventurers-cum-heroes. Into this environment marches Kenny Starfighter (Johan Rheborg) an individual so utterly inept that he qualifies as hopeless and causes an endless array of complications.

Audience Reviews for Kenny Begins
Swedish sci-fi comedies are about as rare as polar bears in Sahara. And whenever my country does make them, they're usually very mediocre. I wish I could say this was an exception, but sadly it ends up in the same pile. Johan Rheborg's acting is great as always, but the movie just completely misses the mark as it comes to the humor. Not a single joke or gag made me laugh (or even chuckle for that matter), and I began wondering if the scriptwriters had really seen the original show at all. Because from what I can remember, it was a lot more fun and entertaining than this was. At least the spirit of the series is intact on the visual level though. It's fun how it mixes B-movie props with high quality special effects. But a movie needs more than just neat visuals, and without a soul, everything just falls flat. So as much as I hate saying it, this was a real disappointment. Worth a rent for the nostalgia, but nowhere near as good as the TV show.More
