Fernando Colomo keeps using the same comedy pattern in practically every film he does; this isn't necessarily a bad thing, because sometimes it works perfectly and the lack of originality isn't noticed. In this case the results are simply decent, the usual mix of romance and bitterness with funny moments that worked so well in "Bajarse al moro", but that here never gets to fascinate like it did in that movie.
The film follows a plot structure already seen and done a thousand times and frankly, sometimes it gets boring and tiresome. The movie works because of some really good moments, excellent secondary characters (like Cámara) and a very good cast. But obviously the film won't make history.
