A very down to earth (as most scandinavian) teen movie about sexuality that focus on the experience (and need of contact and romance) of one girl that find herself in the middle of two maelstroms: uncontrolled hormones and unmanaged "social" life. Really cute and valid.

Quite the opposite of its crude title, this low-key Norwegian coming-of-age comedy turns out to be so gentle and sweet. Telling the tale of an ultimate socially awkward teen, the story makes a strong statement on individuality vs social conformity, especially in a small village where people are outnumbered by sheeps. It's both funny, weird, and liberating.

there are some seizable cultural differences keeping me from truly understanding this movie. It was pretty funny but not in a laugh out loud way, more of a funny situations way. There is a lot of good stuff in here from the perspective of the weird stuff that pops into a teenagers head. Its a movie we have never really seen before. It also has many cute and sweet moments.

A fresh Swedish comedy. I really enjoyed it. (The song Jag kommer is still playing in my head).

There's only one way to describe this movie: A very strange Norwegian teen film about a small-town girl and her struggles with sexual frustration and infatuation. You will have to see it for yourself in order to truly understand it.

A young girl in a small town is driven to act out to satisfy her budding hormones and it's a very strange and oddly believable journey, as we watch her try to put the moves on the local boy who doesn't know what to make of her, and use a sex chat line to try to get off by any means necessary.

Interesting film-making, well worth a rental.

Great young actress & straightforward story telling. Film is frank on its topic of sexual desires, but never explicit or too blunt; it's the characters and acting that's on the spotlight. The stills and colors (or lack of) reflect the boring mountain town life brilliantly.

A bunch of typical teenagers-bored, angry, cruel, careless, socially awkward- marooned in a tiny remote and conservative hamlet in the mountains. The absurdity of the situation and events is hilarious in itself.

Brilliant movie, simple, funny and witty. This is really a breakthrough for Norwegian flicks. Real good acting. not a must see but really quality entertainment.

Sweet and lighthearted, Turn Me On, Dammit! is a well-done coming-of-age movie filled with honesty and tenderness.

For everybody who loves movies, there are movies that they can't explain why they love. They aren't sure why they can take one movie in particular and watch, and re-watch, this particular movie. This is that movie for me. It's provocative and in a strange way statutory. I couldn't show this movie to my friends without an embarrassing explanation about how I'm not a child molester. But regardless, the characters grab me and the plots are engaging. Pic-Alma is a defeated and you just want to go and hug her and let her know that life is more than this particular upheaval of drama. It's like a more realistic "Mean Girls" is probably the best explanation I can give.

A beautiful look at teenage (female) sexuality with a great amount of nordic cool humor.

This is Fucking Åmål (1998) but 14 years later, so it is good.

Despite its subject matter, movie is actually quite sweet and innocent, to a degree. Quite light-hearted and sometimes quite funny. However, in being so light-hearted, it fails to make a profound point at the end, so ends up not funny enough to be a comedy, and not profound enough to be a drama.

Good performances all round, especially from Helene Bergstrom in the lead role.
