This might be the story of your life
8 April 2005 | by (Santiago, Chile) – See all my reviews

Being a little freak, introspective, somewhat fat and a huge fan of Star Wars and comics might render you unattractive for the vast majority of the popular girls in your college.

Roberto Rodriguez is the perfect prototype of a fat freaky looser, and he can live with it, until a new female student arrives into his class. She's an adorable Spanish brunette who also likes comics books, and Roberto falls for her instantaneously.

The problem is that she's quickly drained towards Fele, an older student who is the perfect handsome heart breaker, forcing Roberto to attempt desperately and pathetically to get her to notice him.

I think this movie might be a little autobiographic for Nicolas Lopez, Director, Script Writer and co-producer of Promedio Rojo. And might as well have many similarities with the lives of a lot of young men who hadn't it easy during high school, being unnoticed or unattractive to girls, hanging out with freaky friends, having little or no social life and having to survive the cruelty and rudeness of popular students.

Altought the film has some dramatic ingredients, it's by no means a melodrama. I think this is plain comedy, but a rather sarcastic one. You might find yourself laughing at things that you know that are full of bad taste or even plain gross... and those situations wouldn't be funny if presented in another context, but in this movie it works, and it works well.

There are some petty side conflicts which really aren't important nor funny, but all in all the movie is entertaining, funny and has enjoyable characters.

And I declare myself absolutely in love for Cristina, the Spanish student.
