The Movie of One of the Funniest Brazilian TV Series, About the Marriage of Two Typical Medium Class Couples From Rio de Janeiro
'Os Normais' was a successful Brazilian TV Series, composed of seventy-one episodes as per the information on the DVD. The series was such a hit, that this movie was released, explaining the beginning of the relationship between Vani (Fernanda Torres) and Rui (Luiz Fernando Guimarães). The story is very, but very funny. In this film, Vani got married with Sérgio (Evandro Mesquita) at 6:30 PM, and Rui with Marta (Marisa Orth) at 7:00 PM, in the same day and at the same church. There are lots of confusion and misunderstands, exploring jokes, bad language, and all the stereotypes related to the behavior of the 'carioca' (natives from the city of Rio de Janeiro) medium class. Like in the series, this movie is very funny for Brazilians, but I am not sure whether a foreigner will understand most of the jokes. My vote is eight.
Title (Brazil): 'Os Normais O Filme' ('The Normals The Movie')
