An ordinary story of sex-minded people , dealing with brainless youthful and made without solvency
22 December 2015 | by (Santander Spain) – See all my reviews

The movie talks upon the adventures and misfortunes of a group of friends at their twenty and some , they are continuously doing jokes and seeing lustfully by the opposite sex . The starring results to be Fali (Óscar Jaenada) , a sympathetic young who lives with his mummy and works as a delivery boy at a supermarket , an adequate cover to serve as a gigoló . Fali really wishes to have a luxurious car , a BMV , so he jealously saves everything he earns . In the meantime , Fali roams the neighborhood , the apartment blocks and brothels with his lads Paco the Bear (Pablo Vega) , Laski (Ivan Massagué) and Bolinga (Juanfra) . Meanwhile , he also works at a Videoclub whose chief (Antonio Dechent) is married to an attractive wife (Miriam Diaz Aroca) with whom Fali has an affair . There Fali meets the beautiful Lídia (Mónica Godoy) and he has a crush with her .

The film mingles irony , chuckles , giggles , disgusting comedy and numerous sex jokes . And of course , there's very bad taste , being the extreme when happen the incredible scenes about pissing . The comedy is cheesy and gross-out but has some funny but brief moments here and there . The film is an embarrassing and absurd mess , the plot is ridiculous and monotonous and is formed by various humor set pieces , quite disagreeable and graceless . There are some steamy hot scenes and some memorable and hilarious happenings of dirty humor which will rejoice the rogue aficionados to these kinds of things . The picture takes part of the large group about filthy and piggy humor as : ¨Scary movie¨ , ¨road trip¨ , ¨Porky's¨ saga , ¨American pie¨ and its sequels . This is more or less the usual American young guys comedy , but in a Spanish style , similarly to ¨Krampack¨, ¨Slam¨ and ¨Fin De Curso¨ or "School's Out" by Miguel Marti . Neither the players , nor the filmmaking seem to be nice , and the storyline is utterly embarrassing , but , curiously , it has some amusing moments and I found myself laughing in some times of the movie . Silly acting by Oscar Jaenada as a young whose dream is to buy a luxury big car , meanwhile he works as a gigolo among the most neglected housewives . In spite of this disconcerting film , Jaenada is considered to be one of the best Spanish actors , playing interesting roles in ¨November¨ , ¨El Juego De La Verdad¨, ¨Herencia Valdemar¨, ¨Atraco¨, ¨Dias Azules¨, ¨Descongelate¨ and especially ¨Camaron¨ ; he is nowadays making an international career with titles as ¨Pirates of the Caribbean : On Stranger Tides¨, ¨Losers¨ , ¨Che , Guerrilla¨ , ¨The Limits of Control¨ , ¨After Words¨, ¨The Cold Light of Day¨ and ¨Cantinflas¨ . Atmospheric musical score by Alex Martínez , including a lot of songs . Colorful cinematography by one of the best Spanish cameramen , Carlos Suarez , who has photographed numerous movies such as ¨Dagon¨ , ¨Rowing with the wind¨, "The El Escorial Conspiracy" , Oviedo Expresss¨ , ¨Tuno Negro¨ , ¨El Portero¨ , ¨Don Juan En Los Infiernos¨, ¨Don Juan Mi Querido Fantasma¨ , ¨La Reina Anonima¨, among others¨.

The motion picture was lousily directed by Julio Sanchez Valdes . He is a good professional who has made acceptable pictures such as ¨De Tripas Corazón¨ , ¨La Fuente De La Edad¨ , and at his best : ¨Luna De Lobos¨ about a bunch of Maquis . However , this ¨XXL¨ resulted to be his worst film . He usually directs episodes in known TV series such as ¨Querido Maestro¨ , ¨Petra Delicado¨, ¨Robles Investigador¨, ¨Ay Señor, Señor ¨. Rating : It's a awful turkey . Below average and bottom of barrel . Yawner and snooze is continued . I found it quite ridiculous , at least, it is short .
