Shallow and Silly Romantic Comedy
10 September 2011 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In Rio de Janeiro, Tatiane (Cléo Pires) meets her boyfriend Marcelo (Dudu Azevedo) on the day of his birthday and he breaks with her, claiming that she is not romantic. The unbalanced Tati enters in the class of the biologist Conrado (Malvino Salvador) and hears his lesson about evolution, where he tells that the modern women have destroyed years of evolution with their attitudes and lack of romanticism.

Later, Tati meets Conrado on the street and she offers to work with him in his thesis. Conrado teaches Tati the correct behavior of a woman and how to seduce her mate. Meanwhile Marcelo feels jealous with Conrado that feels attracted by Tati and learns that his theory is not correct. The triangle of love is formed.

"Qualquer Gato Vira-Lata" is a shallow and silly romantic comedy. The predictable and unoriginal story is weak and uses the idea of "Pygmalion", "My Fair Lady" and "Educating Rita", with an older man teaching a younger woman how to behave, and falling in love with each other.

When I see a comedy and do not laugh, something must be wrong. The jokes are not funny, and car crashes (three times), driving reckless, inappropriate laugh of a student in classroom or a man stumbling in the treadmill, for example, never work. Cléo Pires and Dudu Azevedo's characters are unpleasant and absolutely empty, but at least Cléo Pires is hot. My vote is three.

Title (Brazil): "Qualquer Gato Vira-Lata" ("Any Straycat")
