The idea behind this Spanish film, shown recently on cable, had a lot of possibilities, but alas, the finished product seems to be exactly what happens in the making of the movie that is central to the plot.
Federico, an ambitious man, has been involved in a play that hardly anyone has seen. His ambition is to bring it to the screen. For that, he gets mixed up with people that have no clue as to what he wants to present to his audience. Everyone has a different take in what the film should be like, and that results in a different picture of what its creator wanted to do.
Director David Serrano, who co-wrote the screenplay with his leading man, Alberto San Juan, doesn't bring anything to this inane comedy, good for a couple of laughs, and that's about it.
