More like, the dorky Guan.
20 July 2006 | by (Noctropolis) – See all my reviews

I watched this thing under the name "El Chido Guan". That was a catchy name for a movie about soccer.

Oh where to begin? This is cheesier than "El Chanfle". That's just a preview. The acting is horrible, terrible...not even for a Mexican B-movie. The soccer footage just doesn't works in this one. It's very cartoonish. The direction is beyond bad because it seems that the director was just having fun.

The way the Chido Guan comes from the bench and saves his team is beyond laughable. But well this is a movie to laugh about and witness how Mexico can do ultra cheesy movies about soccer.

Please, do not watch this one. This is a horrible movie that shouldn't be watched for any reason.
