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...

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.

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.

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.

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.

A great movie depicting the Midsommer tradition and beautiful Swedish scenery, with fun relatable characters and a good rom-com plot.
This is not an XXX film, there isn't much sex or nudity, but enough to make it a "sex comedy" I guess.
I would definitely recommend this movie to anyone looking for a "different" romantic comedy.
I think it's awesome that the movie is in Swedish. It does have English subtitles.
Enjoy!

Well directed and edited and the acting is good. There is a point where I felt hooked and very interested in the characters and story but the story weaves itself into a corner with no possible outcome that is satisfactory. In the end I felt like there was an entire movie they skipped over before the last scene and it left me feeling like the movie was incomplete.

This is essentially European in its focus on the possibility of fulfillment and self discovery within maturing relationships in spite of the alienation and loss of social traditions in contemporary life. The comedy is in the universal folly of love and romance, and the sex is the male and female gender opposition. And just as Shakespeare shows in Midsummer Night's Dream all's well that ends well after many amusing struggles. And this movie ends well after revealing the risks in finding the right partners and the fears that we haven't the ability to love. It is a light movie with big ambitions and it succeeds. There is no flaw in the acting. The director finds his style quickly and the cinematography is gorgeous.
