Trivia

Roberto Rodriguez (the main character) is named after Nicolás López's idol, Robert Rodriguez. Lopez finally met him during the press junket of Sin City (2005), because Rodriguez's wife and producer Elizabeth Avellan loved the movie (she watched it in the SXSW Film Festival after reading a letter that Lopez sent to Rodriguez begging him to watch the movie).

Dull and vugar nerd comedy
2 August 2006 | by (Chile) – See all my reviews

Chilean comedies seem to have a great flaw: they're either dull or vulgar: this one is both. Quite influenced by the Spanish director Alex de la Iglesia, this movie imitates his style, including his faults. The story is very silly and there's nothing original in it. It concerns high school nerds in their sexual awareness and the attempts to have their first experiences (does that sound familiar to you?) It certainly looks quite old fashioned,with the most recurrent stereotypes of the American youngster comedies of the sixties like "Porky" and all its sequels and imitations. The humor is rough - kind of vulgar actually - and the interpretations are quite elementary. It was quite popular in Chile but it faded away a few months after being released.
