The premise behind this light comedy from Spain is how three gay men that are living together can bring a fourth one to help them with the rent. Their landlady is threatening with eviction because they don't pay, so they need someone immediately to help them solve their predicament. Only, they are too choosy in who they will let into their apartment.
The interview process is hilarious, but it's obvious only Lucas, the hunky stud that is the last to come to talk to the trio, is going to be the one selected. The comedy switches gears about half way through when the three roommates realize something must have happened to Lucas, who has failed to show up at a club where he is expected. Nothing prepare us, or the this trio for the sight they are going to encounter when they open the door! In flashbacks we get to know the truth and how Toni, Carlos and Dani, the original roommates and their female friends all have something to do with the fate Lucas encounters.
Dunia Ayuso and Felix Sabroso are credited with the direction of this comedy from Spain. Under more experienced hands, this film could have been much better since most of the possibilities are wasted. Jordi Molla, Pepon Nieto, and Roberto Correcher play the three friends. Alonso Caparros is seen as Lucas.
