Goofs

The Skype conversation between Sven and his family ends by his sister saying that "Kalle Anka" is about to start. The Swedish Christmas show always starts at 3 PM local time, which means that the time in Thailand has to be 11 PM since the time difference is eight hours. Although, the sun is shining and it's clearly daylight from where Sven is calling from. See more »

Average romantic movie
3 February 2020 | by v-56289See all my reviews

Nothing very special about this movie.. It is not bad, but neither nothing surprising.. It is quiet predictable, build on similar Holywood style-romantic comedies.. Though it was interesting to see it "from swedish point of view"... And the melodic swedish language is fun to listen
