Men & Chicken's bizarre setup only skims the surface of a challenging, well-acted comedy with a warm heart to match its grotesque visuals and dark themes.

Movie Info

Men & Chicken is a darkly hilarious slapstick comedy starring Mads Mikkelsen ("Hannibal," ingeniously cast against type) about a pair of socially-challenged siblings who discover they are adopted half-brothers in their late father's videotaped will. Their journey in search of their true father takes them to the small, insular Danish island of Ork, where they stumble upon three additional half-brothers-each also sporting hereditary harelips and lunatic tendencies-living in a dilapidated mansion overrun by barn animals. Initially unwelcome by their newfound kin, the two visitors stubbornly wear them down until they're reluctantly invited to stay. As the misfit bunch get to know each other, they unwittingly uncover a deep family secret that ultimately binds them together. This inventively bizarre and outlandish comedy is directed by acclaimed, Oscar (R)-winning director Anders Thomas Jensen and also stars David Dencik (The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.)

Audience Reviews for Men & Chicken (Mænd & høns)

  • Aug 17, 2017
    A bit of a sci-fi family drama as two entirely different adopted brothers look for and find the old familial stomping grounds ... only to be faced with the ugly reality that its not quite up to expectations. Late in the film we all discover the reason why, but not before the brothers are faced not only with their differences but with bonding in spite of them. There's heart in this mess, which may be the point of all families, eh?

    Mads Mikkelsen is priceless - and nearly unrecognizable with a cleft lip, fake teeth and an eccentric composition - in this hilarious comedy that feels like a darkly humored mix of The Island of Dr. Moreau and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, but the ending feels a bit off.
