It might have gotten better, but it really lost me early on...
I normally don't review films I don't completely watch but felt compelled to add a quick comment. If a film features a lead who is obnoxious, make sure he's not so obnoxious that you turn off the movie. When this film began, the three Danish friends were so obnoxious and sanctimonious that I truly hated them. During their visit to Texas, they spent their time being boorish jerks--making fun of everything. And, the lead was worse because he announced that he's going back to Denmark because they place sucks.
I travel a lot--far, far more than the average person. I've been to countries where I've heard terrible things about the locals and found them all to be extremely nice. In fact, that can be said about everywhere you go--everywhere. So, after only about 10 minutes, I just turned it off because it created a main character that was simply awful- -and so I didn't care about his romance or change of heart. I just wanted him to go home and shut up.
