Klown Reviews

  • Essentially, this is a Scandinavian version of The Hangover, but maybe the planned American remake won't pretend to be something it's not.

    Owen Gleiberman — Entertainment Weekly

  • It's actually rather sweet, in its raunchy way.

    Neil Genzlinger — New York Times

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

    Mark Feeney — Boston Globe

  • Raunchy dude comedy is hardly the sole province of American cinema, as Klown all too dispiritingly reconfirms.

    Nick Schager — Village Voice

  • ...a reasonably enjoyable and not entirely dumb raunch comedy of awkwardness until it disastrously overplays its hand in the final two minutes.

    Glenn Kenny — MSN Movies

  • 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.

    Anthony Lane — New Yorker

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

    Bill Goodykoontz — Arizona Republic

  • Mikkel Norgaard serves up an edgy brew that skewers just about everything Danish in sight, including the Dogma style of cinema, which comes off as increasingly passe.

    Robert Koehler — Variety

  • Ultra-raunchy, sometimes hilarious...

    Lou Lumenick — New York Post

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

    Chase Whale — Film.com

  • Anyone in the market for a good dose of bad taste should make a point of checking this out.

    William Goss — Film.com

  • Each gag has added appeal because it contains an uneasy humor that's often explored but never fully exploited in these parts.

    Eric Kohn — indieWIRE

  • Story of a man's ill-concieved attempt to prove his merit as a father benefits from Frank Hvam's dry comic performance.

    John DeFore — Hollywood Reporter

  • At its best, it's a sly dismantling of a familiar comedy template built on male cluelessness and female responsibility.

    Sheri Linden — Los Angeles Times

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

    Landon Palmer — Film School Rejects

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

    Peter Bradshaw

  • Aside from its standout scenes Klown is underpowered, content to coast on the easy chemistry between its leads.

    Little White Lies

  • Ultimately, Klown is just a comedy, and an excruciatingly funny one at that, even if at times it does veer into somewhat uncomfortable territory.

    Stefan Pape — HeyUGuys

  • Denmark's charmless answer to The Hangover crosses the line between gross-out and just plain gross.

    Jamie Russell — Total Film

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

    Tom Huddleston — Time Out
