Pilar López de Ayala,
Thirty minutes was the most I was able to endure of this dismal comedy. A 17th century swashbuckling farce filled with puerile humor. Kids may laugh at someone eating a cockroach or the rumble of an empty stomach. For anyone with an IQ of 50 or more, the complete inanity will make you groan.
The story is centered around a nitwit young woman, but the rest of the cast has roles as stupid as hers. I don't know whether I should feel sorry for Coronado, Spain's George Clooney, for being brought into this abysmal mess for the sole purpose of attracting a female audience.
The only nice thing that can be said is the good camera work. It is sad to see so many beautiful scenes wasted on such a forgettable bomb.
