Globo, the most powerful TV in Brazil, produces tolerably good soap operas, if one doesn't mind too much the far-fetched story lines. But when it comes to their attempts at making movies, the results are almost always disappointing, as the final product is usually neither here nor there - not a good lighthearted TV program and definitely not a great film. This film is no exception, and not even the all-star cast can do much with such a poor screenplay. Many of the characters seem like poor adaptations from successful TV programs, such as Pedro Cardoso who seems to have come directly from filming the TV series a Grande Família into this film, and Agildo Ribeiro, whose character is very similar to characters he's been playing forever on TV. I'm glad I didn't spend any money on this but watched it on TV instead.
