Lost a lot of its original humor, acted badly
There were lots of local versions around the world of different TV shows, lots of them were changed quite a bit. This is one of the first times ever when TV show franchise was sold and part of the deal was to copy everything without changes. Same shots, same lines literally translated (with minor changes). It is interesting from that perspective... Elsewise... It just sucks.... Lots of jokes were lost, acting is very stretched. Lots of famous Argentinian actors, even world known Cecilia Roth (for her Almodovar's "All about my mother"). Surprisingly almost all of the male cast is very unattractive... The gardener is the only eye candy, as he should be. Plumber (Susanne's love interest) was a huge disappointment as well as the rest of male cast. I could go on and on... There's a Brazilian version coming up.
