  • In its cheerfully offensive and bizarre way, Klown is often funny.

    December 5, 2013 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Aside from its standout scenes Klown is underpowered, content to coast on the easy chemistry between its leads.

    December 5, 2013 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • A grim, desperately unfunny parade of dick jokes, masturbation jokes, dick jokes, paedophilia jokes, dick jokes, rape jokes, gay jokes and dick jokes

  • A gleefully rude Danish wronging-of-age comedy.

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

    November 8, 2013 | Full Review…
  • 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.

Audience Reviews for Clown

  • Dec 13, 2012
    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!

    A pretty damn good sex comedy. It's one that simply isn't afraid of what anyone might think about its content. It's a movie where nothing is a taboo, everything is pretty much allowed, as you will see once you've seen this film. But even with all of that, with, some might say, offensive and questionable content, the movie still has a lot of heart. Surprisingly so quite frankly. There's a method to the madness. They're just not simply doing a lot of this "gross" shit simply for the fuck of it, pun very much intended. In a way you grow to like Frank and Casper, no matter how inept and unlikable they may come across at first. The fact that they're so unlikable is part of their charm and it's where a lot of the comedy comes from. Just watching them be completely insensitive and doing shit that no normal being would ever do in their lives, at least Frank's pearl necklace scene. The cast is very good, Frank, Casper and Marcuz (Bo) all have great chemistry with each other and it's a lot of fun seeing them and how they interact with each other in increasingly absurd and hilarious situations. As far as sex comedies go, this has to be, by far, among the best of them in a long while. Because not only does it have a lot of gross-out humor, it also has a good story with some good character progression (believe it or not) so it doesn't feel like an empty experience, which is what sex comedies end up feeling like. If you have use a lot of Netflix instant streaming and are in need of a good comedy, then this one will definitely do the trick.

    Hilarious. Almost entirely unpleasant.
