Klown follows two wildly inappropriate friends as they run amok through the Danish countryside, facing endless awkward confrontations and unspeakable debaucheries. Hopelessly misguided Frank “kidnaps” Bo, the 12-year-old nephew of his pregnant girlfriend, in an eager attempt to prove his fatherhood potential. With Bo at his side, Frank joins sex-crazed Casper on his secret adulterous weekend canoe trip. Rampaging through exclusive brothels, hospitalizations, armed robberies, numerous fights and even prison, the three paddle downstream from one chaotic misadventure to the next, all culminating in a surprisingly endearing portrait of friendship. Klown could be considered The Hangover meets Old School meets Deliverance, but Danish.

Critics are calling Klown “the funniest movie of the year!” Perhaps as proof, Warner Bros. acquired the rights to the film earlier this year and has hired Danny McBride to rewrite a U.S. version of the script.
