Editorial Reviews

Elan Entertainment has the great pleasure to present a Swedish Midsummer Sex Comedy starring American actor Luke Perry in one of the leading roles. This Swedish/American co-production is distributed by 20th Century Fox in Scandinavia and directed by the American director Ian McCrudden. A Swedish Midsummer Sex Comedy is a romantic comedy set in the idyllic Swedish summer. Sumptuous food, saunas, and midnight skinny-dipping are the tradition on Swedish Midsummer, the longest day of the year. This year friends have gathered to the country house of Emil and Susanne, the perfect Swedish couple: In attendance are Eva who is looking for something (someone) to take her mind off her recent split from Patrick. Anders and Maria, the nude hipsters who are trying for their first Kid. Micke and Katarina who are about to have their first any day, and finally the American Sam who engages the proceeding with twinkle and a smile. Who knew that the women dance without underwear of Midsummer s Eve? Sam s expectations for Swedish Midsummer are met and exceeded when a big SURPRISE that Emil s planned, goes awry- leaving everyone all turned around!
If everything had gone according to plan that is...

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent film that warrants a mild recommendation. July 13, 2011
Format:DVD
Judge Daryl Loomis, DVD Verdict-- Aside from Christmas, the biggest holiday in the Scandinavian regions is Midsommar, the celebration of the summer solstice. It's no wonder; with the long northern nights and frigid winters, the longest day of the year is truly cause for celebration, a time of magic and maypoles that is ripe for romance. American director Ian McCrudden (Mr. Smith Gets a Hustler) travels to Sweden with Luke Perry (Beverly Hills 90210) in tow to portray one atypical Midsummer party and deliver a romantic comedy with just enough complication to keep things interesting.

Emil (Daniel Gustavsson, The Girl Who Played with Fire) has planned a huge Midsummer festival this year, with all his local friends coming and Sam (Perry), his best friend from America showing up for his first time in Sweden. Everything is set for a great party, but Emil has another surprise in store, one that will greatly surprise his girlfriend, Susanne (Lisa Werlinder, Munich), and make the whole party wonder if they should have come at all.

Fair warning, horndogs: despite the provocative title, this is not the kind of sex comedy that one might expect from a Swedish import. It deals with sex to a certain extent, but it's no festival of the flesh. Instead, it's a celebration of the romantic beauty of Sweden and an observance of the often tenuous status of relationships. A Swedish Midsummer Sex Comedy is a pretty film that shows of Sweden's landscapes very nicely and features a simple, economic plot but, overall, this is an insubstantial piece. It's enjoyable enough at the time but, like so many summer parties, completely forgotten afterward. That isn't a bad thing exactly; sometimes a trifling comedy is just what the doctor ordered.

3.0 out of 5 stars awkward but interesting March 4, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
A pretty good movie, sort of a Swedish St. Elmo's Fire - Luke Perry sort of stuck out like a sore thumb, but I guess any American would in an all Swedish cast. I liked seeing the characters come to a realization of their relationships and who they are to be with. All in all I enjoyed it because I have a hard time finding current day movies in Swedish language, so I appreciated seeing it.

4.0 out of 5 stars not much sex and not much comedy February 10, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
An American joins Swedish friends to celebrate midsummer (presumably June 21) in rural Sweden. It's nicely filmed amid lakes, trees and traditional rural village houses. Most of the cast seem to be thirty somethings who aren't quite sure what they want in life and seem to have emotional problems beneath the surface. Although lightweight, it doesn't have a whole lot of comedy, or sex either, which disappears almost completely after the first few minutes. However some of the cast members look good and it provides a look at Swedish middle class life in the country.

5.0 out of 5 stars Near Perfect Sex Comedy April 16, 2014
Format:DVD
Very professionally done light entertainment, and -- despite what other reviewers have said -- full of sexual situations, the usual romantic comedy criss-crossing very expertly presented. Luke Perry does a fine, self-effacing job, and the mix of English and Swedish dialog among the characters is one of the film's best points, just like its beautiful scenery.

Sex farces in American movies have given way to gross-out features, which are good enough in their own way, but might make us forget the softer, smoother approach to love problems that this movie takes. It's old-fashioned and its laughs are gentle, but constant and winningly earned. This kind of show is much harder to put together than it seems to be. Meanwhile, the box and the English title are in no way misleading: what you see is what you get, and you get something very good.

It has its fun moments but is largely an exaggerated portrayal of a Swedish holiday gathering.. Yes, there is lots of drinking and sex in Swedish summer holidays, but this is over the top.
