This movie is basically an updated version of the Bette Davis '60's movie Pocketful of Miracles. The story is adapted to Spanish culture and attitudes of the time, jazzed up to make it funnier, but basically the same. See more »

One of Mariano Ozores' best
4 November 2005 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

It has laughs, drama, great characters and it's also a family movie (except for two top less scenes, way too innocent watched today). Must be released in DVD right now. Worldwide.

The movie features a lot of comedians from the 80's and some cameos, like the one by Fernando Esteso.

The story has Andres Pajares working overtime to pay the bills for his daughter' school, who thinks he's a big man, making international business and chatting with his majesty the king every week. The truth is way too different from reality, but he will try that the little girl never be aware of it. Attention to the now TV star Maria Adanez as the friend of the daughter of Pajares.
