With two million viewers, this film beat out every foreign film on theaters at the time, including Toy Story 2 (1999).
When Macedão's minions invade the Dois Corações school for the first time, Barbara tells that she was named after a blonde doll. This is a reference to Barbie doll, which was created in 1959 but wasn't available in Brazil until 1982. As the movie is set in Brazil in 1999 and Barbara is clearly a woman in her early thirties, she was born in the 1960s, when Barbie wasn't released in the country yet. Thus, it's impossible to any Brazilian person be named after Barbie before 1982.
