Are the words that would describe this hardly known Spanish religious comedy.
Mr.Summers succeeded in mix stupid & funny situations (that could easily had been found on a Monthy Phyton film) with the 'freak' concept consisting on introduce funny/singular people as characters of his movie. That concept was later took by directors like Santiago Segura or Javier Cárdenas for his "Torrente" and "FBI" films respectively with good results (in cash, indeed :P).
Another good merit from the Summers' film is the succeed in reaching a sane, pure and happy humor that makes u tons of pure laughs without doing bad tasted personal offences; instead of the nowadays apparently incompatibility with the 'freak' concept...
You laughs with the characters, not at them... ;) By that way, by its genial & hilarious situations, by his good entertaining (maybe not at all at the Babel's tower inauguration), by its sooooooo low budgeting, the year which was produced at and for being the first Spanish comedy movie in that way I'm giving it a 10 over 10. True that actually there're (lots of) much better movies, but Summers' effort definitely deserves it. :)
