There are many youth films that fall into the bad to mediocre category. This one works well in that it has humor (such as the frequently occurring instances of Peter teasing Viktor, which work really well), and it has a very decent soundtrack. Some of the love scenes are cute and even over the top, but they work well, contributing to the feel-good atmosphere of the entire movie.
I would not recommend this to my parents or anyone else over 30. They might enjoy it, however, this is aimed at a younger audience. Anyone over 10 should have no problem watching this.
Despite the relatively predictable plot, in my book, 'Kærlighed ved første hik' has a solid spot as a classic in the Danish youth movies genre.
