Suàrez at his best...
26 April 2005 | by (Noctropolis) – See all my reviews

Hèctor Suàrez didn't have a single problem in performing this character. "El Mil Usos" is somewhat of a cult character and represents the lower class in Mèxico.

Trànsito Pèrez moves to Mèxico city in order to begin a new life. In order to complete his objective, he works in a thousand jobs where he gets exploted, humilliated, and even ends in jail.

Oh well this is one of the ultra low budget movies from the worst Mexican era in cinema. The movie is grotesque but funny at some times.

Suàrez dressed as Santa Claus is stuff for legend. Watch this movie to witness the mediocrity of ultra low budget.
