Nice comedy about 3 fun guys and 3 serious girls!! (when will that change?)
9 January 2006 | by (www.efeweb.es) – See all my reviews

This is the second part of the successful 'Al otro lado de la cama'. Only two main characters have changed, now played by Vero Sanchez y Lucia Jimenez while before we had Paz Vega and Natalia Verbeke, and the structure is quite similar to the first one: 3 girls, actually 4,(the previous two plus Maria Esteve and Pilar Castro) and 3 guys (Willy Toledo, Ernesto Alterio y Alberto San Juan) in their thirties living in nice apartments in Madrid and having their love and sexual life entangled. This of course together with nice Latin (mostly from Spain) music performed by the actors.

To me the movie achieves its goal as a soft comedy directed to Spanish people in their thirties who can relate easily to the music they perform and also to some of the problems they face. However, it does not deviate at all from the structure of the previous one although now the relations between the couples are a bit different, and that means it is essentially the same movie with slightly different actors and situations.

Another point I would like to stress, and it is more of a complain to the script: why do the laughing lines fall into the guys? Can't the girls have also some good lines in this comedy? Come on, Veronica Sanchez and Lucia Jimenez deserved some comedy as well, I want to laugh with Spanish actresses in the same way I did with Carol Lombard in "To be or not to be"!. In this movie, all the "good" comedy lines are for the guys, which are OK in their roles (very similar, if not exactly the same, as in the previous one) and none for any of the girls (except a bit for Maria Esteve and Pilar Castro) which act in a way as simple beautiful filling in this comedy. Can't we have beautiful actresses who can make us laugh? Please, let's write better comedy scripts for these very talented bunch of girls!!

In any case the movie is worth seeing on a Sunday afternoon!
