silly comedy
11 July 2007 | by (Barcelona, Spain) – See all my reviews

Papito is a poor actor that lives in Cuba with Yoli, his girlfriend. Due to the need of money, Yoli must marry Arturo, a rich man from Spain, but he suddenly dies at the honeymoon so Papito must disguise himself in Arturo and travel to Spain in order to go back with as much money as possible. Unluckily for him Arturo results to be part of a Spanish kitsch mafia, so he will have to pass through dangerous ridicule situations to save his life. Well the plot is silly, as the movie, but it is entertaining (which is the only aim of the film). Itis clear that anyone is a good actor, but they are decent eno0ugh to make their part correctly. Valdés is by far the best (well, he is the director and the main character) and he is able to make two good gags during all the movie, the rest of it just passes by with little smiles. Entertaining and nothing more.
