Finally a film explored the American way, not the main theme poverty and misery, but rather focused on funny scenes without any order to "think of noble causes" or "think about the situation in the country."
I consider the film as a "Teen Comedy" no sex scenes or explicit nudity, which is rare in a film of Brazil.
For the public more "restricted", sex is part of life, and comedies should focus more on this topic. Funny that an American film sex comedy like "The virgin of 40 years" is well-spoken, while a film with good comedy with no explicit nudity is seen as a movie "bad" or "forgettable."
Worth watching, rate and contribute 10 to Brazil to do more such films.
Enough with the 'Central do brasil"," Cidade de Deus"," Carandiru", etc..
It's time to make Brazil laughing with "Deus é Brasileiro", "Os Normais"and"Auto da comparecida"and excited about serious films and well written as "Tropa de Elite 1 and 2."
