a crazy idea sustained becomes an acceptable yarn...
Film tells the story of two brothers over thirty, addicted to heavy metal, that live a prolonged teenage life, clad in standard heavy clothing gear including tattoos and piercings and metallic accessories, working as delivery boys for their father fish shop. One of their stops is the local university, where the youngest bro falls for an upper class, pretty, posh student. His efforts to woo her are the source for most of the film's comic effect. The idea is on paper difficult to believe but Santiago Segura and Florentino Fernandez's charisma holds the nonsense together for most of the movie. The story is kept rolling at a good pace by the director, Chema de la Peña, and the rest of the actors shuffle along without much of a role, although a few of them are allowed their moment of comic glory. Entertaining, if not too original.
