'ntonces que? (What's up)
12 September 2003 | by See all my reviews

Since I don't have anough space to talk about tin tan. At least I would like to recomend all his 1940's and early 50's movies. Most of the time you'll find him corny at the beginning, but once you understand him you'll end up crying of laughter. His "..tonces que?" in this movie, became a trend in the 1950's Mexican slang for a while (according to my dad off course). I don't think that he was better or funnier than Cantinflas, but I don't think that Cantinflas was better or funnier than Tin tan. Two completely different styles in comedy, but with the same result. Perhaps Tin Tan was a more daring, and as surreal as the Marx brothers.
