Fine Spanish 90s Comedy
24 March 2000 | by See all my reviews

This Jorge Sanz starrer is one of the most popular of the myriad of comedies Spain produced in the 1990s. It is also quite good, and very much worth watching, especially for Sanz and Veronica Forque (KIKA), two of the country's best actors.
