One-Adam 12! One-Adam 12! Dial 911 emergency! We hear another Adam (Sandler) will star in an American insta-remake of this rollicking Swedish farce. See the original, before brains behind "The Waterboy" and "The Hot Chick" commit cinematic felony on the sidesplitting source material. The village of H?gbotrask hasn't had a single crime in 10 years, and the police are atrophied slackers who don't even know how to start a computer and file a report. Benny constantly fantasizes of "Die Hard" cop action; Lasse and Agneta are a middle-aged, squabbling couple; and Dick the K-9 is a Pomeranian frightened by its own squeeze toys. Patrolman Jacob, a single father with obsessive-compulsive disorder, finally impresses a pretty face in a bar, only to learn she's the government hatchet-lady, here to close the entire precinct. The super troopers' last hope to justify their existence is a a badly-improvised hoax crime wave that careens out of control. (In Swedish with English subtitles)
