A mediocre treat on self-confidence fable
A elemental school student is being unnoticed in the school, no one cares of him, except for his two friends that also comes unnoticed. Then one day he got a mustache, and, while at first hand is bullied, suddenly becomes a celebrity and attracts the attention of the 10,000 mustaches club.
The story tries to relies on a self-confidence story where you can see that initially the mustache is a burden and then something that brings him a lot of confidence, that, at some point put him in a top position in school but giving him the risk of losing what he really values.
While the idea sounds original, at some moment you would think about taking on a social cliché (hipster people leaving mustaches and beard because it look cool) applied to an unexpected element of society and put it to take the most laughs at possible, a joke that ends so quick that you want to skip the scenes just to see what happens if the kid decides to shave.
And with the shave, the movie goes along with the mustache, a bad resolution of the film, that is not showing the true idea behind the film makes the viewer to try to forget everything on this movie. As expected, the character goes downhill, but the way he gets his most valuable things he love to be saved turns to be badly executed.
Do not think even to put it if is the only movie you have in your tablet.
