This sequel is an entertaining and fun musical comedy with fine actors and attractive musical numbers
22 July 2015 | by (Santander Spain) – See all my reviews

This follow-up to ¨El Otro Lado De La Cama¨ movie , a Spanish blockbuster , that was a huge box office success earlier ; this sequel turns out to be an amusing picture packing twisted relationships , comedy , dances with intense sensuality and including agreeable melodies . It is a funny picture dealing with couple relationships , jealousy , lies , family conflicts and many other things . Three years have passed and the boys seem to have matured . Javier (Ernesto Alterio) is going to marry gorgeous Marta (Verónica Sánchez) and Pedro (Guillermo ¨Willy¨ Toledo) is really happy and very much in love with his new sweetheart , enticing Raquel (Lucia Jimenez) . The Cabman Rafa (Alberto San Juan) has also found love with sympathetic Pilar (Maria Esteve , Marisol's daughter) , who loves him too and treats him in a very special way . It can seem that everything is alright in their existences . However , Marta and Raquel have different aims that will put their relationship with their boyfriends in danger and both of whom are being unfaithful to their fiancés . Even Pilar has got a secret lover who results to be Rafa's best friend (Secun De La Rosa) . But that's not all: a new girl , attractive Carlota (Pilar Castro) , appears in Javier and Pedro's lives and both of them fall in love for her .

Romantic Spanish comedy with good actors , spectacular musical numbers singing charming songs , and nice direction . A film rich in troublesome loving stories , where love is the central theme seen from various points of view . This is an agreeable as well as uneven comedy in less than 105 minutes of length and yet with an air of naturalness and credibility rarely match . The best parts of the movie are the choreographic numbers and known songs adapted in original model with roots in pop music of the eighties ; recreating the essence of the classic songs by body movements accompanying sensual melodies and lyrics . This is an enjoyable musical comedy including love stories in which there is lesbianism , homosexuality , threesome , as well as the ordinary Spanish clichés . Colorful story of loves and jealousy in which predominates songs and musical spectacle . It has some moments of enjoyment as well as amusement and others quite a few embarrassing . Regular and unbalanced , but gaining the sympathy almost at all times . Bad timing results to be the voice of the singers with the actors , it is less achieved . Main actors as Ernesto Alterio , Verónica Sánchez , Lucia Jimenez steal the show , interpreters who provided a considerable boost to the result . All of them play and dance wonderful and classic Spanish songs such as ¨Quiero Un Camion¨, ¨A Quien Le Importa¨ , ¨Dejame Ya No Tiene Sentido¨ , ¨Como Pudiste Hacerme Eso¨, ¨Ni Tu Ni Nadie¨, ¨Jeanette's Porque Sera¨, ¨Por Las Noches ¨ , ¨Quiero Besarte¨, ¨Gavilan Y Paloma¨ from known bands and singers as Pablo Abraira , Mecano , Los Secretos , Radio Futura , Nacha Pop and many others .

Furthermore , dances and choreography by Paco Berdayas are pretty well , following Emilio Martinez Lazaro's ¨El Otro Lado De La Cama" style "Scandalous" or ¨¿ Porque Se Frotan Patitas ¿¨ (2006) by Alvaro Begines and François Ozon' ¨Potiche¨ and ¨Eight Women¨ . Glamorous and colorful cinematography by Juan Molina . "The 2 Sides of the Bed" was originally written and professionally directed by Emilio Martínez Lázaro . He was born in 1945 in Madrid , location in which he often shoots his films . He is a Spanish prestigious cinema director . Emilio is a director and writer, a good filmmaker expert on comedies as he has proved in : Los Peores Años De Nuestra Vida (1994) , El Juego Más Divertido (1998) and Amo Tu Cama Rica (1992) , drama : Las 13 Rosas (2007) La Voz De Su Amo (2001) , Musical as : ¨Al Otro Lado De La Cama¨ (2002) starred by Ernesto Alterio , Paz Vega , Natalia Verbeke , Guillermo Toledo , Ramón Barea , Alberto San Juan , María Esteve Nathalie Poza , Secun de la Rosa , and ¨Los Dos Lados De La Cama¨ (2005) . Being especially known for this ¨8 Apellidos Vascos¨or "Spanish Affair" considered to be the biggest box office in Spanish cinema and he is nowadays shooting ¨8 Apellidos Vascos 2¨ .
