You will really laugh¡¡¡¡¡¡¡

This movie deals with a baby who was thrown away of his house through the window and he fell down on a `maguey' (Mexican plant) since that moment all the movie is a complete joke. It is based on a true Mexican legend.

The Tiger of Santa Julia (the person) lived in Mexico City from 1908 to 1910 when Porfirio Diaz was Mexico´s president. He and three women rob rich people and gave the money to poor people. You watch sex between three women and one man. The sexy young girl is Yvonne Montero who also appears in `Asesino en serio'
