Dennis and Carl are brothers who live on a small farm in the Danish countryside. None too bright, Dennis wants a girlfriend for Christmas. Carl makes sure that Dennis gets just that when he meets Rita at the local pub. She is on the run from her husband and she doesn't turn down the chance to hide away at Carl and Dennis's place. Written by
The scene where Sidse Babett Knudsen wakes up in bed next to a severed foot and suddenly regains the ability to speak, was all ad-libbed after she and the director decided that her character Rita needed some more personality. There wasn't time to add to the script, so she had to make up additional dialogue herself while filming. See more »

A movie that was made for rednecks and hillibillies?
One seems to really need a specific kind of Danish humour to appreciate 'Fukssvansen'. That said, 'Fukssvansen' is one of the worst movies I have ever seen. Where shall I start? Well, it's shot like a C-grade movie. No filter has been used. The story is downright silly and the acting is headache inducing. Two mind-numbingly stupid brothers are forced by circumstances to share their house with a screechingly annoying guy named Finn because they apparently owe him a significant amount of money. Their neighbours are equally idiotic. The older elder brother Carl just happens to meet a pregnant runaway cute blondie and he offers her to be his brother's Christmas present (no sexual strings attached). Next thing, she just pops up at their house and decides to stay there. There is eye candy in the form of Sidse Babett Knudesen. If only I could get back my 90 minutes I spent on this travesty. I wonder why people would spend money to make and watch this? Clearly, I made that mistake. Later on, I read some comments that this movie appealed to rednecks and hillibillies. Oh well!
