Great film, extremely funny.
16 April 2003 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

A truly funny comedy, and one of the last good mexican films of those times. Alfonso Arau at its best, as unique as he always was before trying to become a Hollywood director. If this movie ever comes out on video, get it.
