31 October 2010 | by (Oakland CA) – See all my reviews

Beautiful Maria Felix must choose between two macho men--Emilio Fernandez or Pedro Armendariz--in this in-artful but colorful romantic musical from director Roberto Rodriguez, the man also responsible for perhaps the worst film ever made, 1961's Puss 'n' Boots (please read my review of that film for more information). How will she decide? By checking out their cocks, of course--but the fighting kind, not the other kind. Though set during the late days of the Mexican Revolution, this is most decidedly a crowd-pleaser, with even less emphasis on historical accuracy than Armendariz' Pancho Villa trilogy. There's an unfortunate reliance on the zoom lens and Gabriel Figueroa's cinematography is not up too his usual high standards. The English subtitles are surprisingly frank, with the words 's**t", f**k', 'c**k', and (best of all) 'c**k ring' all appearing at least once.
