Two wildly inappropriate friends run amok through the Danish countryside plowing through endless awkward confrontations and unspeakable debaucheries.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A grim, desperately unfunny parade of dick jokes, masturbation jokes, dick jokes, paedophilia jokes, dick jokes, rape jokes, gay jokes and dick jokes"
‑ Tom Huddleston, Time Out
"It can seem sometimes that Hollywood has a monopoly on stupid, obnoxious comedy. Anyone who sees "Klown" will learn otherwise."
‑ Mark Feeney, Boston Globe
"Situational comedies need some believability to be effective, and too many gags in Klown feel like punchlines whose set-ups were engineered in reverse..."
‑ Landon Palmer, Film School Rejects
"Ultimately, Klown is just a comedy, and an excruciatingly funny one at that, even if at times it does veer into somewhat uncomfortable territory."
‑ Stefan Pape, HeyUGuys
"Each and every situation here is designed to make viewers squirm -- and, as a side effect, laugh out of shock and discomfort."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Common Sense Media
"KLOWN is a one of the most comically aggressive films you will ever see."
‑ Chase Whale, Film.com
"Think of all the gags you think might go too far, and then watch as Nørgaard takes them even further."
‑ Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic
"In its cheerfully offensive and bizarre way, Klown is often funny."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
"Denmark's charmless answer to The Hangover crosses the line between gross-out and just plain gross."
‑ Jamie Russell, Total Film
"A raunchy shock comedy through and through, one in which nearly every major laugh involves, in one way or another, male genitalia. Or, in one case, an index finger."
‑ Mike Scott, Times-Picayune
"Its deliberate aversion to good taste is the biggest gag of all, and the source of its claim to infamy; yet running beneath the grossness, and the calamitous bonhomie, is a quiet streak of despair."
‑ Anthony Lane, New Yorker
"Ultra-raunchy, sometimes hilarious..."
‑ Lou Lumenick, New York Post
"Aside from its standout scenes Klown is underpowered, content to coast on the easy chemistry between its leads."
‑ Jason Ward, Little White Lies
"A gleefully rude Danish wronging-of-age comedy."
‑ Simon Crook, Empire Magazine
"There are certainly laughs to be had here, but maybe Klown was more effective (and funnier) in thirty-minute doses on TV than dragged out to feature length."
‑ Ethan Alter, Television Without Pity
