Regurgitated trivial comedy
So many things were taboo when Franco ruled: but here we are with an imitation of the sopless silliness of the Franco years, but just simply adding in the sexy bits and other previously frowned-on ingredients. Using actors who should have stayed where they were, doing rubbishy TV series on the different national and regional channels, here is a cooked up waste of time and effort by all concerned: there's nothing new. There was no message. Just paltry little situations which were neither funny nor led to anywhere or anything else. Contrived, the same as the too well-known faces who are mostly capable of only filling up 30 minute weightless TV series with ham interpretations. Just nothing going for it - not even the abused selection of pieces of Tchaickovsky did anything to add a little dignity to the trash. No, if you want to see where decent Spanish cinema is going, forget this stupidity with an intellectual level of around zero (the same as my vote), and I'll recommend other worthwhile titles elsewhere on IMDb for more serious cinema-lovers.
