Storyline

Jacob is a young man used to getting everything he wants. For several years, he has been living in a happy homosexual partnership with Jørgen, and one night Jacob decides to pop the big question to Jørgen. Jørgen happily accepts Jacobs marriage proposal, but then something happens: Jacob falls in love with a girl, and not just any girl. The girl is Caroline, married to Jørgens younger brother Tom. Jacob's life suddenly gets very complicated, trying to figure out whether he wants to spend his life with Jørgen or Caroline. Most of all, he wants both! When Caroline gets pregnant with Jacob, matters are even more complicated. Written by Frustrator

Has some funny moments, but the ending ruins the entire movie!
1 February 2003 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

I saw this at an outdoor showing and it had a break midway. During the break I remember a friend asking how I liked it and I said that it was good. It's pretty funny, but then comes the ending! Sappy, romantic (not that romance can't be good in a film), predictable crap! As I said in the headline the ending ruins the entire picture and overall this movie was yet another one where I said "nothing special" after it was over. Too bad as it was funny during most of the film.
