From the beginning you can see a lack of a history (it is have an argument, an empty one, but at least you can figure it out that the director tried to reach a point and transmit a message which was over transmitted). Nothing in the movie has a reason to be. The only reason, I guess, is try to be funny and, maybe just maybe, for Franchela's fans, it is. But even they must admit that the movie is a waste of time.
No one in the cast, but Franchela and Araos, know how to be an actor. It is obvious that the intention was to make the entire movie around Franchela, who is a good comic actor, but a whole movie just for him is just too much and at the end is boring. It had been good to give Araos a greater participation in the movie to complement Franchela character, because the few fair moments in the movie are when both characters are together.
The first minutes, when the characters are at the airport, you can think: Well, I know the movie will be awful, but at least will have the same old, always effective, gags that had Argentineans movies 20 years before. But soon after that, when they are at Dominica, the movie becomes an endless repetition of a pointless situation. When you are thinking that the movie can't be worst, then comes the end, which is a proof that never something is bad enough. It is no funny, have no sense, try to be surprising but it is anything else but that, and with the intention to be moralist result in something that I cannot qualify with another word than Awful.
I went to see this movie because my friends are Franchela's fans, but I will never forgive them for the 90 minutes that I lost.
I can honestly say that the best of the movie was the popcorn (which weren't really good actually!)
Sorry about my English... thx.
