typical Spanish comedy
15 April 2006 | by (Barcelona, Spain) – See all my reviews

Tito is an unemployed actor that spend hits days acting in his brother's bar, waiting for his opportunity; meanwhile, his wife teaches in an illegal vegetarian cook school and his mother, very possessive, tries to protect him from his wife (typical mother-in-law). One day, arrives to the bar a very well-known (but drug-addict) cinema director, that watches Tito and decides to use him in his next film. This is the opportunity that Tito has been waiting, but, when everything is prepared to sign, the director dies. As if he dies, the money is away, Tito and his wife decide to simulate that the director is alive, only for some days, in order to sign the contract and get the money. This will lead to some surrealistic and funny situations. Though it is very typical, pretending that one person dead is still alive, here the result is quite sympathetic and the movie does not bore, and in some moments can result funny too. Most of the moments and gags are very usual and it's probable that you have seen it somewhere. However, they don't annoy. Of course it is not a good movie, but pleasant to see and it is not very long, so you cannot bore with it. Ideal for spending a quiet Sunday afternoon with a stupid but relaxing movie.
