London Underground banned the film's poster which featured Victoria Abril in an S&M Jean-Paul Gaultier outfit complete with fake breasts, despite the image being used to promote the film everywhere else around the world. See more »
Although the film is ostensibly about "Kika," she is actually only one character featured in this raunchy, ensemble comedy.
The plot here is all over the place! This is not necessarily bad--one character ties into another character's life and the focus of the movie moves in a circular manner which eventually returns to our heroine, the naive but lovable Kika (well-portrayed by Verónica Forqué).
This film is funny! It's a combination of "There's Something About Mary," Woody Allen at his zaniest, and "Sex and the City." Good for a laugh, especially for the poor dubbing of Peter Coyote's Spanish.
