Really Cool
4 March 2000 | by (Brasilia, Brasil) – See all my reviews

This is probably one of the best comedies of the world, it has all the ingredients of the funniest comedies. The story line is about all the funny situations in our private life, it looks like "sex and the city" sometimes, but the dialogues are more tenuous.

The cast is great, besides the great guess appearances, Fernanda Torres, Luiz Fernando Guimarães, Marco Nanini and Pedro Cardoso are really funny and talented actors

I used to watch it every saturday and I had a lot of fun, I really think they should have made it for much time.
