Hilarious SlapStick RomCom for those sick of American Ideals
I dragged my brother to this Spanish flick thinking: "Oh, you speak Spanish. Here sit and watch this thing with me." He almost refused. First 5 minutes: We were cracking up. Maybe it was the venue (Seattle International Film Fest at some funky theater) or perhaps it was truly a great entertaining film. I'm going to say it was the latter.
I've had it up to here with typical US RomComs and loved the twists and how the plot rolled. If you're ready for some fun Spanish slapstick with ridiculous romance and like watching men cry after clothed encounters you'll really like this.
It's a bit long, but like any good story they are trying to hit every character. Not your typical ending-- all personalities stay in tact.
Conditions to Watch: With friends, if you once dated / married an emotional man, if you are tired of American stereotyped reality TV, in a playful mood.
