sweet, light, fool comedy
29 May 2004 | by (Campina Grande, Brazil) – See all my reviews

I watched this film by accident, once I got home and just turned the TV on. I saw the description of the film on the screen and I liked it, so I decide to check it out.

The first half of the movie is nothing but fool, full of clichés and jokes that are not so funny. But then it develops to a sweet comedy where the characters fit into a nice story. There's some slight drama going on, but it's still comedy.

The story sounded good to me. It's about a dying man who talks to his best friend and asks him an unusual favour: let him have sex with his wife (played by beautiful Eva Herzigova). This causes some confusion and makes the film a little funny. Then, as the story flows, the comedy gets higher quality and in the end the film pleases us all.
