In the tradition of Scary movie and all those other "movie"(s), this does take on the Spanish language movies. Interestingly enough it is produced in Spanish too. Which is a nice touch and one thing I liked about the movie. It is very silly and it is very weird to say the least. And you might not enjoy it, if you don't get the references. Or even if you do get them, it might feel like a waste of time.

In the end it does seem to depend on your frame of mind. I wasn't laughing throughout, but the movie got a few chuckles out of me. And that's more than I can say from recent efforts like "Date Movie" and other so called spoofs. All in all, a nice try.
