Every Other Week

A prime example of European movies being Americanized, this 2006 romantic comedy about Stockholm yuppies could easily be set in New York or LA. A doctor with marital problems (Mans Herngren) moves in with his brother, a neurotic and divorced director of TV commercials (Felix Herngren); first the siblings can't decide who they really love, then their women can't, and meanwhile their kids get bounced around the households. Meant to be sophisticated and charming, this ends up labored and not very sexy, with gags like a Matrix parody falling flat as a lingonberry pancake. Hannes Holm and Hans Ingemansson penned the rapid-fire but shallow screenplay and also directed with the Herngren brothers. In Swedish with subtitles. 95 min.
