Incredibly inept Mexican comedy...
28 March 2012 | by (Evansville, Indiana USA) – See all my reviews

1st watched 3/25/2012 – 2 out of 10(Dir-Michael M. Delgado,English language version-Manuel San Fernando): Incredibly inept Mexican comedy that's kind of a twist between an Abbott&Costello horror comedy and an Agatha Christie mystery with musical pieces added in. The story starts in a nightclub called the Devil's Inn complete with torches and waitresses dressed in devil's costumes and we're presented with two musical numbers(getting some local musicians some airtime, I guess). We then learn that one of the waitresses Godfather died and is asking for a group to show up at his Red House for a reading of his will. They are told by the lawyer to stay three nights, contemplating their sins on the first two, then looking for treasure on the third. Most of the inheritance is going to the Godchild, but half of the treasure goes to the one who finds it. What's kinda weird is that all of them don't stay overnight?? Instead they go back to the Devil's Inn for more musical numbers?? I guess the movie was good fodder for the Ricky Ricardo craze on American TV and that's why it was released in this dubbed version to TV, but it's pretty laughable for the most part. The main leading lady tries to be funny but is really just a bad over-actor, and the detective does pretty much the same thing. I'm not really a fan of dubbed films, but it would be probably be hard to find this one in any other English language form. Watch the Lucy show instead if you need some Latino-American entertainment…this one probably wouldn't even classify for entertainment unless you want a good laugh, I guess.
