| Awful comedy, interesting movie
The movie was made by a Brazilian comedy group, Casseta & Planeta. They made huge success back in '80 and early 90, but since later '90 they're labeled as unfunny. And they're really old-fashioned, in a bad sense: many fart and gay jokes show that.

However, Agamenon movie surprised me in a good way. I didn't really laughed as you may expect on a comedy, but I found out many jokes very interesting. It's not simply a popular comedy movie - it's a tentative to make a popular-and-cult comedy. They failed to do the comedy - but I've appreciated their efforts to make original jokes which requires knowledge from a variety of themes, mainly (but not only) from Brazilian culture (like Sebastião Salgado' photographs) and politics.

In the end, it wasn't a good movie - most of all, it wasn't a good comedy. But it was a good experience - it showed something that I've never saw on Brazilian comedies: jokes that require a considerable amount of culture to you get. For the comedy, I'd gave it a 1, for the creativity, I'd gave it a 7. Overall, 4,
