Muito Gelo e Dois Dedos D'Água is a crazy romantic comedy that combines some delicious touches of dark humor and hilarious police persecutions. Everything comes with an amazing soundtrack of the greatest hits of the Brazilian pop music of the late eighties, involving the movie in a very sensual atmosphere. The story is not realistic; it is more cartoons like. As a matter of fact, the introduction is an animation, using the "The Simpsons" and "South Park" styles. Written by Cláudia Bejarano

Dumb, Unpleasant, Silly and Shallow
28 July 2008 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In Maceió, the dysfunctional pothead Roberta (Mariana Ximenes), who was abused by her mates in the elementary school, has a deep hatred against her grandmother Judite (Laura Cardoso) because of her treatment in the summer holidays of her childhood and adolescence. She kidnaps Judite and puts her in the trunk of her car; then she visits her sister Suzana (Paloma Duarte), who is scheduling the birthday party with a clown for her son, and she prepares some shots to dope Judite. While waiting for Suzana on the street, Roberta goes to a bar to calm down drinking whiskey and she meets the dumb lawyer Renato (Ângelo Paes Leme), who has just been stolen. Roberta creates a big mess in the bar and they do not pay the check; while escaping from the police, she invites Renato to travel with her sister and her to her grandmother's beachside home for the weekend. When Renato discovers that the sisters plot revenge and plan to torture Judite to get even, he tries to convince the girls to call off their plan. Meanwhile, Suzana's husband Francisco (Thiago Lacerda) finds the drugs in a desk in his bedroom and decides to chase his wife, believing that Roberta is persuading Suzana to use drugs, getting into serious trouble.

"Muito Gelo e Dois Dedos D'Água" has a dumb and unpleasant storyline and screenplay, with one of the most imbecile stories I have ever seen. The motive for the revenge of Roberta and Suzana is not funny; on the contrary, it is stupid and does not justify their act. The shallow and fool metaphor used for the title of the movie seems to be written by a person with elementary school only. The characters are awful: Roberta is a dysfunctional pothead; Suzana is an amoral bitch; Renato is a dumb man with a weak character; Dr. Francisco is a caricature of a man; Cleusa is a bitch; and Judite is not well developed and it is impossible to imagine her as a villain or a child abuser, just an old woman with some silly ideas. The good points are the locations in and nearby Maceió, one of the most beautiful cities in the world, and the great cast leaded by the gorgeous Mariana Ximenes and Paloma Duarte that unfortunately is not able to save with their talents such awful story. My vote is four.

Title (Brazil): "Muito Gelo e Dois Dedos D'Água" ("Lots of Ice and a Little Bit of Water")
