Storyline

Low-budget ensemble comedy by Mexican director Carlos Sama, in which the lives and relationships of a colourful array of charcters become irretrievably entwined: neurotic B-list TV director Orlando (Juan Manuel Bernal); his new-age wife Sonia (Mariana Gajá); tempestuous couple Mauricio (José María Yazpik) and Renée (Cecilia Suárez); and sweet, charming nurse-turned-serial killer Mamá Rosa (Tara Parra) - whose unlikely story is being covered by a reality TV series.

Not good in any way... but there are worse.
20 June 2003 | by (Mexico City) – See all my reviews

I didn't have much expectations about this movie, so I guess it was a good deal paying half the ticket price on a wednesday for a few laughs.

"Sin ton ni sonia" goes nowhere. It has tons of characters with very different backgrounds and situations. They try to give a lot of time to each of them, but in the end you realize they weren't needed that much. At least not in so much detail. We get dubbers, police men (mexican and american), physics, telepaths, organs-traffic dealers, hackers, and much more. I bet by now you're saying "What the...", and yes, that's just what I thought as I was watching the movie.

As I said, too many characters and for nothing. In the end things are just left the way they were in the beginning. In the end nothing happened. In the end you can't help but think "What? That's it?"

Maybe they just tried too hard. In Mexico there's more budget to film commercials than to make movies; is that simple. Mexican filmmakers, and the audience, are tied to that and must rely on good writing (which this movie totally lacks) for a movie to succeed.

If you are at the theater entrance trying to decide on what to see, you can leave this one as the last option. Don't worry, you won't miss anything.
