you hate big brother? you'll like this movie
20 June 2002 | by (portugal) – See all my reviews

it does a LOT of reality shows bashing at the old portuguese way. the problem is that the plot was not explored, it depends too much on stupid gags and such, and althoug the actors are good, they are not explored as they should have been. still it makes for some enjoyable 90 minutes.
