Skip this movie, 31 January 2010
Author: Nicolás Lichtmaier from Buenos Aires, Argentina

This is a bad movie. It has some few funny things, you will smile sometimes. Not laugh, just smile. Other than that this movie feels too long. The characters are very plain, they were taken directly from the "drawing board", they doesn't feel like real persons.

The performances are not bad, and because of that it's nice to see some of the characters in this movie, but the plot ends up ruining the movie.

The only attraction here might be to see the weight changes the cast had had to make this movie. If the weight changes were real (and they seem so) it's a pity these people have risked their health for such a bad movie.
