Two things pushed me to watch this movie almost against my will: Is from the Calderón Stell brothers and I wanted to see if I could find all the ''vedettes'' on screen after reading their names on the credits.
From the 11 movies that Montenegro and Rivero made together, there's one where she pretends to be a man, so it was his turn now to do the opposite. To make Rivero sign the contract someone surely told him that this would be a comedy in the style of UNA EVA Y DOS ADANES (Some like it hot), but check this out and tell me if this is a good idea:
1- With those huge muscles, Rivero has bone marrow cancer and has seen several specialists, who had told him the same, no cure.
2- His mother is catholic, so he can not commit suicide because that would kill her too, losing her son and thinking he was going to hell it was just too much.
3- He decides to hire someone to kill him by surprise, and that way he won't even feel it.
4- Just seconds after signing the contract with the assassins, arriving at home, the phone is ringing and is one of the doctors telling him they were ALL WRONG, ALL OF THEM!!! He is not going to die after all...Is that even believable?
5- He can not undo the killing thing, so gets his friend (Inclán) and move to another apartment DRESSED AS WOMEN until the hired assassins forget the whole deal when they never find him.
6- A slutty neighbor sees them moving in and quickly calls Montenegro so she can hire Rivero as her personal assistant. Montenegro likes them big and manly.
7- MUÑECAS DE MEDIANOCHE, is the place where Montenegro performs a couple numbers. Here is where the flesh showing, the dancing and the drinking begins.
8- LA CORCHOLATA shows up, along with Isela Vega, Caballo Rojas, Andrés García playing himself, Manuel loco Valdés (in love with Inclán in drag), la creme de la creme.
9- Rivero falls in love with, wanna guess? Montenegro! (her name here is GINA MONTESCO, just like Gina Montes, the Brazilian vedette, who is also there) and everything starts to get complicated when the assassin shows up as one of Montenegro's ''friend''.
10- Another Asian-looking 'vedette'' is there and is not Lyn Mai, maybe she had BETTER things to do... really? In the end I didn't find all the vedettes I was looking for but found out Rivero and Inclán's costume designer was MITZI! Yes, Thalías Mitzi... (I think he was jealous and that's why he made those horrible dresses) unbelievable!
