A silly spoof of contemporary Spanish movies with a myriad of unimaginative gags
24 October 2014 | by (Santander Spain) – See all my reviews

Absurd as well as disconcerting spoof with a lot of Spanish stars parodying known films . It deals with the botcher Ramira (Alejandra Jimenez) is contracted by Laura (Silvia Abril) to work as maid and to care her two photosensitive (it is very strange with roughly a thousand people in the world that have it) children , Ofendia and Simeon . But clumsy Ramira accidentally kills Simeon and decides to lie about his death . As bungler nanny Ramira in charge of caring the children then she meets paraplegic Pedro (Carlos Areces) and they fall in love with each other , but he wants to commit suicide himself , asking for help housemaid Ramira .

This is a hilarious parody , surrealist , extreme spoof and gross-out but also is intelligent and bold , especially parodying ¨Los Otros's Alejandro Amenabar¨ and ¨El Orfanato's Juan Antonio Bayona¨ . This is a slightly funny film with entertaining events , giggles , profanities , and amusement but also very embarrassing . The film moves in fits and starts most of which would be desirable , with more traps the viewer resists any kind, and some moments of enjoyment and others quite a few ridiculous . The characters are quite odd , grotesque and weird and the film races on at incredible speed . Dirty humor is sometimes cheesy and gross-out with numerous naughty and picaresque situations such as sex jokes , bad taste and adult scenes . My feelings are extremely mixed but I must admit there are things I haven't been able to stop laughing about ; however , it also contains uneven comedy , piggy humor , abound sexual scenes , profanity and grossed themes . A few of the scenes are amusing , they elicit chuckles but no very enjoyable laughters . The films references are numerous and provide silly laughs from start to finish , the amusement is to guess what movies result to be parodied such as ¨The Orphanage¨, ¨Mar Adentro or The sea inside¨ , ¨Abre Los Ojos or Open your eyes¨ , ¨Alatriste¨ , ¨Lunes Al Sol¨,¨Laberinto Del Fauno or Pan's labyrinth ¨ , ¨Rec¨ by Jaume Balaguero , ¨Volver¨ by Pedro Almodovar and many others .

The picture contains loads of fun here and there and a passel of cameo appearances as Belen Rueda of The Others , Leticia Dolera of REC , Michelle Jenner , Andreu Buenafuente , Berto Romero , Eduardo Gomez , Joselito , Nacho Vidal , Jordi Vilches , Fernando Gil , Chiquito De La Calzada and filmmakers as Alex De La Iglesia , Juan Antonio Bayona , Xavi Gimenez , Sergio Sanchez , Jaume Balaguero , Paco Plaza and Alejandro Amenabar . And special appearance by Leslie Nielsen who shot his scenes in 2 days. All the Muchachada Nui series (2007) crew made a cameo appearance in the bar scene. Xavi Gimenez cinematography is excellent creating an adequate atmosphere , he's expert on sombre photography (Fragile , Agora , Red lights , Nameless) . Atmospheric musical score by Fernando Velazquez (Mama , El Orfanato , Lo Impossible) .

The motion picture was regularly directed by Javier Ruiz Caldera . He was born in Barcelona and is a good director and editor , he realized some Shorts and being expert on comedies , especially known for Spanish Movie (2009) , Promoción Fantasma (2012) and Tres Bodas De Mas or 3 many wedding (2013) . Furthermore , he is preparing Anacleto Agente Secreto (in post-production) and SuperLopez . The motion picture will appeal to lunatic humor and absurd comedy enthusiasts
