Don't mix this with Greek cinema because it isn't.
This thing is just OK only to watch it on a Friday night with your bored-to-death mates (that's what I did yesterday). I laughed to tears in some scenes taking the p*** of the 1950s-1970s Greek films but:
These laughs are not the effect of a genuine or sensitive humour but rather similar to a reaction when someone farts. This is not really cinema, just a sequence of TV-style gangs we watch every year in the Xmas programmes. My three (out of ten) is the mark that this "film" deserves ;-)
Two years ago I was bit harsh to all the good people of Greek TV-Washing Machine so I repeat it: this thing is easy to watch and you laugh with it but after you watch it you feel an emptiness, a gap; it's the intellectual deficit of modern Greece.
