My mom and I were bored, and she was curious about the movie, so we watched it to have a quick laugh, as Santiago Segura and Silvia Abril can be funny.

There's one or two jokes which land, the rest are on the level that you get reading Twitter zingers about the most commonly used comedy topics, which is sad for a movie that cost nearly 3M euros. It's 2020, and we have jokes about a little girl who can't pronounce right and is going to a logopedist?

One can agree with the social message that a movie conveys (the load of sharing children is not shared fairly across couples), but find it crude- laughs are gotten by having everyone in the movie be obnoxious, stupid or both. Takeshi Kitano hinted that the best comedy (and the "best violence") is unexpected; Almodóvar's is at his funniest when he puts his characters in bizarre situations, because jokes surprise you. This movie is exactly the opposite. It just tries to be relatable to the lowest common denominator Spaniard out there.

You could say that the movie has a few laughs in it and is good to watch if you are bored with nothing to do, but I say there's a massive number of good comedies that can keep you busy for ages, so please don't encourage more stuff like this.
