It seems to be nearly impossible for Finnish filmmakers to put out a lavish and blatant comedy. Even a film like Pussikaljaelokuva (internationally The Six-Pack Movie) which showcases the day of three out of work boozers just hanging out about town doesn't have the balls to be outright funny. Then again, that may not have been the intention in the first place and I might be wrong but it is just so frustarting that if I want to see a good comedy, I always have to turn to foreign films. The last outrageous comedies in this country were made by Pertti "Spede" Pasanen and his friends and later by a comedy group called Kummeli. Sure their films were dumb and perhaps closesd parallel to early Adam Sandler films but at least they were honestly funny.
