How could anyone rate this movie !!!
9 March 2000 | by (Buenos Aires, Argentina) – See all my reviews

One of the best Argentine comedians of all time (if not the best) stars this picture, mighty ALBERTO OLMEDO who died in 1989.

This is his top alone movie (not counting the ones that made with JORGE PORCEL); it´s about a common man that is tired of being treated as stupid, and start treating the other people like that, saying that he is a Brazilian "manosanta" (person that cures people´s problems).

You cannot ask anything else for this type of comedy. The jokes are simple and effective. Lots of women barely nude. Some bad acting that contributes to the hilarious plot. The movie is so improvised that in some "dramatic" scenes you can see the actors laughing. And features a legion of excellent Argentine comedians (including Javier Portales, el "facha" Martel, Divina Gloria, etc)

What else could you ask for??? Just watch it and get your own conclusions.

I rate this movie with a 7 out of 10.-
