Three divorced men (a designer, a comercial airline pilot and a sport radio commentator) share a flat. They live together without trouble till they hire a cleaning lady with whom the three flirt. Written by

Three husbands who elect to live independently of their wives move in together and hire a young cleaning woman to take care of their apartment. When each of them falls for her, they are surprised to discover that she is no pushover. Ground rules are immediately put into place by the cleaner and the husbands find themselves being whipped into shape in a fashion their wives have never been able to do. Invitations to dinner are accepted by the girl, only for the would-be Romeo to be presented with a bill at the end of the evening for the hours she has spent being wined and dined. The continuing problems with the ex-wives finds no easy resolution and the continuing pursuit of the cleaner is constantly being foiled by the girl herself. Some of the situations are laugh out loud ridiculous and the story proceeds at a breakneck speed that never flags. An American version of this movie might have had the husbands learning their lesson and being accepted back by their wives but this fresh and original Spanish approach, while satisfying, does not tie up all the husbands' indiscretions with a happily-ever-after conclusion. This movie is a lot of fun and well worth the time.
