João Paulo Rodrigues,
An original and unique parody to reality shows.In Portugal, different celebrities, from different artistic areas, "live" together in a house where everything looks real, but it's not. Pure comedy and social satire.

This is not a real movie or a real trilogy. Hell, these are not even real actors. The 1st "movie" of the trilogy was an amateur work closer from a joke between friends than a real project.
The only reason a give it 6 stars and not 0 is because many Portuguese people are fans of this absolutely unpretentious kind of cinema. A group of friends acting ridiculously, swearing even more than real country people would and exaggerating all the clichés that you can think of about low life Portuguese's.
If you are Portuguese and watch this movie just to have fun and laugh about how ridiculous this thing is, you can actually have a good time. If you hope to see a real movie, one with a plot, actors and some degree of professionalism, you'll be shocked and leave the theater 10 minutes in the story.
I will repeat once again. This is not a real movie. This started has an amateur comical work that found success among some parts of Portuguese society because of how ridiculous and dumb everything in it is. The difference between part 1 and part 2 just resides in better editing (in a decade, everyone seems now able to edit) better cinematography and the inclusion of some popular comedians that, if you're not Portuguese, will never know or even understand the style.
As i said, 6 over 10 stars because of the unpretentious way that these guys created this trilogy.
