Brasil is worldwide famous for soap-operas, and inside the country its a passion. I believe this movie follows a soap-opera style, with a boring story and free semi-nudes scenes from the gorgeous Deborah Secco. I say free cause they got nothing to do with the movie, they are totally out of context. The teen movie approach was not very well announced and I happened to watch it with wrong idea, thinking that it were a movie based on feelings, good script and nice acting, like the Brazilian movie industry is very well based on. It isn't a bad movie, it's just not quite good to theaters...a TV series would be enough. And we're also used to very good movies from Brasil these days, which helped to decrease my feelings for Meu tio matou um Cara.
