Storyline

Wafer factory-owner P. Tinto and his wife Olivia want a child of their own more than anything else in the world. Years of trying, however, have left them with nothing but a pair of extraterrestrial midgets living in the spare bedroom. When they decide to try adoption, a series of misroutings and chance encounters results in an escaped adult mental patient arriving at their door with adoption papers in hand. P. Tinto and Olivia accept this without question and welcome him in as their son. Can this family arrangement work? Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Unreal Story, Real Fun
4 January 1999 | by (Bilbao, Spain) – See all my reviews

Laugh, laugh and more laugh. The story can't be told but the fun time you have is more than a standard script. The best moment, the revisited ET phone home. A carpetovetonic flight to another era and time...

Go javier,go. The Oscar is awaiting you
