Directed by David Dobkin. With Will Ferrell, Rachel McAdams, Dan Stevens, Mikael Persbrandt. When aspiring musicians Lars and Sigrit are given the opportunity to represent their country at the world's biggest song competition, they finally have a chance to prove that any dream worth having is a dream worth fighting for.
A reasonable ending, but not really as funny as it should have been. Where did the funny go? Might have been better in a theater…
I started this a few weeks back and watched the first half.

Jaja Ding Dong!
