I watched this film last night and left the cinema satisfied that the film had an interesting outcome and i'm sure put a smile on all the viewers faces. It has elements of comedy, drama and takes a close look at relationships between friends and how sometimes when faced with the worst, it brings out the best in us. The movie is full of very amusing moments throughout and for Torrente fans take a close look at Santiago Segura in a very interesting role (for me he had a good blend of humour but with enough vulnerability to make you really feel for him). The soundtrack to the movie is pretty cool too and i'm sure that it will be a springboard for those arcade dancing machines to really catch on. I won't go into any details of the movie but it is a classic tale of how the underdog can sometimes rise to the challenge, a feel-good film that is well worth a look.
