Klown Forever (2015/MVD Visual/Drafthouse Films Blu-ray w/DVD)

Picture: B/B- Sound: B/B- Extras: B Film: B

If you're a fan of dry humor akin to the work of Larry David (Curb Your Enthusiasm, Seinfeld), then you may want to check out this foreign feature film, Klown Forever, that is based on a Danish TV series entitled Klown. In the film, Casper Christensen and Frank Hvan end up traveling to the U.S. (namely Los Angeles) in search of fame and fortune, but end up finding awkward situations and a wide variety of unusually funny characters.

This sounds like this could become superfluous, but the makers manage to pull off much of what they attempt here and its not just Danish humor (whatever that might be) with strangers in a strange land. So will culture clashes play into it all?

Klown Forever is presented in 1080p high definition with a widescreen aspect ratio of 1.85:1 and a great sounding, lossless Danish DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) 5.1 track (with English Subtitles) that is suitable for the comedy and nature of the film. Also included is a standard DVD version presented in 1.85:1 and a lossy Danish Dolby Digital 5.1 track (with English subs). The Blu-ray clarity is sharper than the DVD by miles but due to the type of film this is, it's not an exact necessity to see it in high definition to enjoy it, yet it does make the visual humor funnier.

A pretty funny show with decent production value and some very funny moments, I would suggest this film to fans of offbeat foreign humor.
