Greg Poehler has said in an interview that the early scene where Bruce refuses homemade cinnamon buns, and is surprised by the shock of Emma's family is based on a true story. He claimed that he has later forced himself to tolerate cinnamon after moving to Sweden, and that he has been forgiven by his mother-in-law. See more »
I teach writing. I've written professional comedy, and I've been to Sweden many times. This is a great show. Granted it might be difficult for some who are not as familiar with Sweden, but it is very realistic. It might be hard for the average American to believe, but that's what Sweden is really like. Everyone does speak English there. It's a nice blend of zanier American humor combined with the subtleties of the dryer Swedish humor. We had a Swedish exchange student for a year then we visited her family in Sweden a number of times. They are a wonderful people, and I hope this comedy acquaints some Americans with Swedes and Sweden on some level. Nice job Greg!
