Alt For Egil is a 2004 Norwegian musical film directed by Tore Rygh, starring Kristoffer Joner and Trond Høvik. Egil Hjelmeland (Joner) is a pizza delivery driver who decides to teach his best friend Jan-Ove Tofte (Høvik), who is mentally retarded, how to drive the delivery car. The title is a play on 'Alt for Norge' (Norwegian: All for Norway) which is a patriotic Norwegian motto dating to World War II.
Borghild Maaland of Verdens Gang gave the movie a dice throw of four, and called it "a pretty nice love-story". Inger Bentzrud of Dagbladet gave it five points, calling it "cheeky and different". She particularly appreciated the musical score, and the film's local atmosphere.
