The slaps of humiliation and the lies of salvation.
20 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The movie is hilarious, I mean the way he slaps people around, with such authority is to laugh about over and over again. He must of slapped people on this film more then 10 times. Plus the fact that he insults almost all characters in the film, all based on their appearance, is truly something to appreciate. Then there are the lies, oh the lies are so fluent and natural, this character will lie his way out of trouble in such manner that it almost makes it seem like his the victim, rather then the culprit.This is why Cantinflas was so successful because he always managed to make all situations believable and natural. All in all this is what comedy flicks are all about. Lying, cheating, and oh yeah; slapping.
