Where does it say that? I thought the English cast was only just announced?

It seems rather strange that they'd already be recorded, surely there'd be something on imdb about it if that were the case?

On the website there is a timeline for the movie. And according to that timeline, the English cast was announced in the end of 2002.

Hrmm. Still, perhaps they haven't recorded yet?

Ah I suppose it doesn't really matter. Perhaps the Gents haven't mentioned it because they don't know how to explain it. "Well, there's this elephant on drugs and..." :lol:

The English voiceovers was recorded in London October of 2002, according to the timeline on the homepage. There is also a little icon that looks like a loudspeaker, but it's not clickable. I wish it was. I want to hear what it'll sound like. Now! Please....

It is a little confusing on how only a few of the things are even clickable. I want to see the gents wearing those lovely voice-recording headphones :lol:

Hopefully all the things will remain unclickable till I get my broadband up and running at home... ;)

So, what was the TV show about then, CS? And what would you compare it to? I'm intrigued...

The show used the exact same animation used in the film, and it's basically about these two old men (and their friends) who do nothing but do drugs, drinking and watching porn (and I believe they're also criminals). I guess it's supposed to be a black comedy type thing, though I can't remember it making me laugh much. I'm not sure what I'd compare it too... it's very Scandinavian/Norwegian.

Now that I took a closer look it is actually a movie with the characters from the tv-show. Eh, I can't imagine how it would be any good in English, even with such a great cast, but we'll see.

Perhaps they'll substitute some weirder Scandinavian humour with some more "British" humour? Since there'll surely be some jokes we won't understand in it due to cultural differences and whatnot.

Scandinavian humour is generally really good, I'm not having anything against it, but there are times when it's a bit too weird even for me. The comic strips with theese characters is not my favourite, but I really can't imagine the gents doing something that would disapoint us. I believe in Jimmy!

I've been trying to use the net to translate parts of the website but it's not much use. Thanks by the way! I am definately getting Robbie the Reindeer now!
