Goofs

When Egon and Benny are arguing about driving the lorry, Benny stops and refuses to drive any further. As they have stopped on a slope, the lorry starts rolling backwards, as seen in a long shot. In the close-up of Egon pulling the hand break, you can see that the lorry is not rolling backwards, but in the next long shot, it is rolling, just as you hear Egon pulling the break, stopping the lorry.

Excellent Movie
9 September 2007 | by syrix-1See all my reviews

This movie/series of movies have been my favorites through my childhood and still are.

The story about a "gang" of unlucky criminals with a ingenious leader. The incredibly complicated plans who always seem to fail when success is within their grasp.

I think i can safely say the Olsenbanden series have been the most watched and loved Norwegian movies through time.

Watch and enjoy.

To the danish fellow posting before me, it's a fact that the Norwegian Olsenbanden movies has and is a lot more popular than the danish version.
