This is the only time in which Raul "Chato" Padilla, Ramon Valdes, and Carlos Villagran appear together in a production by Roberto Gomez Bolanos. When Carlos Villagran and Ramon Valdes left El Chavo and El Chapulin Colorado, Raul "Chato" Padilla became a regular in those productions. See more »
One could have expected that Roberto Gómez Bolaños' achievements in `El Chavo' and `El Chapulín Colorado' would be continued in this movie; but this time, he managed to create rather a different but ordinary character: a poor class man who is a passionate fan of the local soccer team, that happens to be someone nobody cares about, but at least his own big dreams keep him on the track. in others words, yet another `mexicano soñador' (Mexican dreamer) kind of guy. The plot is very silly, and the routines a la `Blake Edwards' are overexploited. `El Chanfle' lacks originality and is very boring. It clearly looks it is a low-budget movie, but I think this is not an excuse for being so bad.
