The Mexican remake of "La Comunidad"
13 May 2005 | by See all my reviews

This film receives a lot of bad reviews, "Santo Peregrinos" is the Mexican remake of the Spanish "La Comunidad" directed by Alex de la Iglesia which had good reviews. Great actors and good characters in a not so great film, kind of watching a Looney Tunes cartoon for adults. Carmen Salinas, Ernesto Gomez Cruz, Isaura Espinoza and Julieta Egurrola are great actors, but somehow they doesn't give it all. Eduardo España in a character a lot like Marty Feldman's Igor in "Young Frankenstein" is very funny, unlike his coleague Adal Ramones the least funny of all. But wait, this is not a total crap, if you loose all your expectations before seen it, you might have some fun. Then again, better go for "La Comunidad".
