With a family to maintain and no job in sight, Angel sets aside his values and gets entangled with a third rate gang of thieves where he finds friendship, loyalty, self-esteem but no money. If his foray into the criminal underworld doesn't help his family, Angel will have to find another way to survive. Written by
Didn't have high expectations about this film after watching the trailer, which, by the way, doesn't do it justice. It seemed like a typical Mexican comedy, but believe me, is not. The script is great, the humor is intelligent, there is very good acting and is just really funny.
Angel is a honest man who loses his job and is struggling to find a new one. By accident, he gets involved with a band of harmless crooks and develops a plan to solve their money problems.
It deals with the values of friendship and honesty, without getting preachy and letting each character make his choice. The whole theatre was laughing and everybody enjoyed it.
