Successful Spanish comedy with nutty humor , fun , entertaining events and a lot of familiar faces
Seven friends , one mission , skill : none . Jorge's (Alberto San Juan) life is embarrassing and problematic . He finds his work tiring , his sweetheart Violeta (Natalia Verbeke) has just abandoned him and his friends are all losers . A bit later on , Jorge meets Bárbara (Pilar Castro) and both of them fall in love ; meanwhile , Violeta has affair with Daniel (Daniel Martin) . Antonio (Ernesto Alterio) , his best friend, is just out of prison and want to work as a psychologist, so he decides to practice his special brand of psychology on the road as a taxi man . Jorge's other friends aren't doing much better , they are the followings : Carlos (Pere Ponce) , Ramón (Roberto Álamo married to Carla : Maria Steve) , Serafín (Fernando Tejero) , Gonzalo (Secun de la Rosa) and Miguel (Luis Bermejo) . The solution is to resurrect a football team they had in their youth and ultimately win something in life . Nothing seems to work at first , and they lose every match . However, when Antonio's close friend Serafin (Fernando Tejero) appears on the football field , things change ; as Serafin finds some unusual ways of succeeding on the scene . Later on , Antonio takes an essential decision : to marry Macarena (Lola Dueñas) , as he invites to his seven friends .
This passable as well as silly comedy contains crazy events , sexual scenes , amusement and absurd situations . Sitting in a strange middle ground between the completely absurd and the stylish set pieces , adding some agreeable moments . This comedy contains social customs about a group of friends who attempt to find a way to change their miserable lives , lots of humor , entertainment and amusement . This is a slightly funny film with entertaining situations , giggles , emotion and love stories . The film moves in fits and starts most of which would be desirable , with more traps the viewer resists any kind, and some moments of enjoyment and others quite a few ridiculous . This is a typical Madrid comedy of the 2000s with the usual ingredients as enjoyable humor , social habits , relationships among people and , of course , dealing with soccer . My feelings are extremely mixed but I must admit there are some brief and no very enjoyable laughters ; however , it also packs uneven comedy , vulgar humor , profanity and grossed themes . It was followed by a similar film : ¨El Penalti Mas largo Del Mundo¨, in fact , when the trailer was shown on cinemas, most of the public thought it was the second part of Días De Fútbol . The cast is frankly well , plenty of young actors as Ernesto Alterio playing an ex-con who has been in jail after various petty crimes and has decided to become a psychologist but he can only get a job as a cab driver , Alberto San Juan as sad and depressing Jorge , Fernando Tejero as optimist and happy Serafin , among others . In addition , brief appearances and cameos from Javier Gutiérrez , Andres Lima , Antonio De La Torre , Eva Santolaria , Pepo Oliva , Aitor Merino , Javivi , Guillermo ¨Willy¨ Toledo and several others .
It packs an adequate cinematography by Kiko De La Rica , considered to be one of the best Spanish cameramen , he has photographed many successes such as Lucia Y Sexo , Mataharis , Marujas Asesinas , he's usual cameraman of Eloy De La Iglesia : The Oxford murders , Comunidad , Chispa De Vida , Brujas De Zurragamurdi . Furthermore , atmospheric and evocative musical score by Miguel Malla . The motion picture was middlingly directed by David Serrano , as no big deal , the flick is acceptable and decent . David Serrano was born in 1975 in Madrid , location in which he often shoots his movies . He is a writer , known for Días De Fútbol (2003), El Otro Lado De La Cama (2002) , Una Hora Más En Canarias (2010) and is filming Tenemos Que Hablar with Hugo Silva and Michelle Jenner .
