| Dated as well as standard comedy and typical of the Sixties by the prolific directors Pedro Maso and Pedro Lazaga
Mario (Arturo Fernandez) and Teresa (Teresa Gimpera) are an unhappy marriage with three children . He works as a vendor and she is the usual Spanish housewife . Mario is a bossy , shouter and grumpy man , while his sacrificed spouse lives for her work and children . One day , Teresa's s friend (Moira Orfei) suggests her she should change her look and hunt for a job to earn money . From now on , Teresa works as businesswomen with certain success and Mario as a houseman . Then , he encounters a frenetic and hostile work at homd, but Mario breaks his leg and things go awry .

It is a so-so picture concerning a botcher husband and his hard-working wife , who agree to change their roles , but things get worse . Funny and fun acting by Arturo Fernandez who decides settle down on his apartment doing housework and enjoyable Teresa Gimpera as the housewife turned succesful clerk . Being regularly written by Pedro Masó, Rafael J. Salvia, and Pedro Lazaga himself. The film develops the classical formula : ¨Fish out water¨ , as a businessman leaves his employment and begins working at home , once there , he only encounters a lot of problems that attempts to resolve , as well as his troublesome family and his demanding children. This film is made to entertain , and this movie , especially for a good time and a pleasant entertainment and is also pretty darn funny . Sitting in a strange middle ground between the completely absurd and the stylishly agreeable . Showing the regular family of the 60s and the peculiar society during the Francoist period , including frivolity , egoism , duplicity and deceits . There are some nice jokes in the film and the cast , playing eccentric characters , make a cosy fit . The flick interweaves fun comedy along with a social criticism about the peculiar Spain of the 60s . This film packs customary images of the social life from the sixties , nutty situations , but it especially contains catching touches of humor , tongue-in-cheek and irony ; adding the typical Spanish idiosyncrasy . The film is full of familiar faces and cameos , such as : Juanjo Menendez , the Italian Moira Orfei , Francisco Camoiras , Barta Bari , Aurora Redondo , Erasmo Pascual , José María Tasso , Jose Sepulveda , Rafael Hernández and , of course , Rafaela Aparicio as a lively mute maid . And evocative and catching musical score by Antón García Abril , adding some pop songs with soundtrack typical of the sixties .
