One of Capulina's best solo comedies!
"El bueno para nada" is one of Capulina's best solo comedies thanks to its great supporting cast. Capulina is outstandingly funny himself, but he is complemented by other extraordinary actors in this low-budget film. The beautiful and attractive actress Lina Marín, born in Oaxaca, is apt to play Capulina's indigenous girlfriend who works as a maid for an affluent couple; she is funny in her own right. The other leading lady who is also funny in her own right is Susana Alexander, a beautiful, talented and versatile actress who is also a comedy genius in Mexico; she effectively plays Carolina, the affluent lady for whom the maid works, and "steals the show" whenever she's on screen, as does Marín. Pancho Córdova, who plays Carolina's submissive husband, also shows great comedic talent. Ivonne Govea, Juan Gallardo, Enrique Pontón, Ricardo Adalid, and others contrast the comedy played by the leading stars by playing the dramatic roles.
The film was shot in eye-appealing Eastmancolor and features scenes filmed in Acapulco. I highly recommend this film; it is one of my all-time favorites.
