A grim, desperately unfunny parade of dick jokes, masturbation jokes, dick jokes, paedophilia jokes, dick jokes, rape jokes, gay jokes and dick jokes

KLOWN is a one of the most comically aggressive films you will ever see.

Its deliberate aversion to good taste is the biggest gag of all, and the source of its claim to infamy; yet running beneath the grossness, and the calamitous bonhomie, is a quiet streak of despair.

It can seem sometimes that Hollywood has a monopoly on stupid, obnoxious comedy. Anyone who sees "Klown" will learn otherwise.

Think of all the gags you think might go too far, and then watch as Nørgaard takes them even further.

Situational comedies need some believability to be effective, and too many gags in Klown feel like punchlines whose set-ups were engineered in reverse...

Audience Reviews for Klovn: The Movie (Klown)

½

Think of a Judd Apatow film. Now add some grit and gravitas and (more) lewdness, without stripping away any of the honest charm, and you'll get a film a lot like Klown.

At its core, it's the story of three men growing up - never mind that two of them are already in their forties. Our hero, Frank, is a bumbler whose girlfriend has all but given up on his fatherhood potential. Frank's friend Casper organizes an annual camping trip, which is largely a cover for the men to cheat on their wives, and in a misguided attempt to prove he can be a father after all, Frank kidnaps his girlfriend's twelve-year-old nephew the day before the trip, and has no choice but to take him along. It's a film with a lot of laughs and in the end a lot of charm, too - a little-known film from Denmark that punches above its weight and leaves a bigger impression. Great discovery!

Hilarious. Almost entirely unpleasant.
