| Not the comedy you might expect
Although this was marketed as a Cantinflas movie, he appears in only 5 short scenes and does not play the comedian we know and love. The film stars Carlos Orellana, who finds out he is going to die soon, so he lives like there is no tomorrow. He drops lots of money on fine wines, stands up to his wife, and settles problems all around him. The storyline and acting are dime-a-dozen. The box says it lasts 104 minutes, but it's only 88, and I was glad to see it end there.

There are no subtitles, it's only in Spanish. Most of the actors speak with a Castillian/Spain accent (it takes place in Spain). If you are a true Cantinflas fan, you might need to see this just to check it off your list. If you're looking for a good comedy, this is not it. "El Sube y Baja," "Por Mis Pistolas," and "El Padrecito" are all good Cantinflas titles that you should see.
