| An excellent first part of the end of the beloved characters
This is where the end is reached for the Olsen Gang. Kjeld and Yvonne are to celebrate their silver wedding. Egon announces right off the bat that he is *not* going back to jail. The end all be all to all Olsen Gang films(yes, the '98 film hardly has any place in this series or even franchise at all). How best to make it count? Collect every exceptional idea left, every coup, every joke and gag still to be done... and create a two-parter finale. This first part ends with a cliffhanger, followed by a brief advertisement for the next film, to ensure that people will watch it all. The plot is simply brilliant. The coups are among the most memorable, they are plentiful and they're all excellently executed. The pace is intense. There's constantly something going on, and the laughs are non-stop. The humor is amazing. From the Latin slogan(in a delightful parody of the pompous slogan of Carlsberg, which was also written in Latin) of the insurance company that translates into "In calamity we trust" to Yvonne's one-sided phone conversation with her never-seen sister, it's all sophisticated, accurate, human and hilarious. Bøffen pulls out two(!) of his best death-traps, leading to several incredibly funny scenes. The character of Hallandsen, perfectly cast with Holger Juul Hansen as the executive on the verge of a nervous breakdown, begets several entertaining scenes, one featuring Tom McEwan as an immigrant cab driver. Tommy Kenter is born to play the small but funny role that he does. With an ending that leaves you on the edge of your seat and wanting more, all I can say is watch this, and be sure to have the next one handy. I recommend this to any fan of the series and Danish comedy in general, though having seen the previous films are a requirement to understand and enjoy it. 8/10
