A dark comedy with few laughs
13 March 2000 | by (Pasadena, CA) – See all my reviews

Reminiscent of "Welcome to the Dollhouse" or "Joe, the King," this movie shows how parents contribute to an unhappy childhood. However, "Mamá es Boba" does not measure up to those other films.

The premise is that the mother of the protagonist, Martín, becomes the unwitting accomplice in a local TV station scam whereby she is installed as a newsreader. Martin's mother, Gema Perdulí, is truly awful and everyone laughs at her, not with her.

I really didn't connect with the characters at all: The Martín character was not very well developed as the focus is on his parents. As for the simpleton parents, they too didn't arouse any sympathy. As a consequence, the movie plods on even though it's short(1 hr, 32 min).

Another drawback was that the music and score were dreadful and inappropriate. In short, the film is a disappointment.
