30 July 2012 | by (El Paso TX) – See all my reviews

I'm a fan of bad movies, I find them entertaining and El Paso is known as the place where one of the worst movies ever made, "Manos" The hands of faith, had its inception. And while Manos is pretty terrible, (and I tend to have an almost masochistic tendency to sit there and watch it over and over again) The Da Pinche Code tested the limits of my tolerance for bad movies.

I went to the opening in El Paso with very low expectations, but those expectations quickly hit rock bottom during the first few minutes of the film and then started digging to sink even further. Calling this thing a film is giving it too much credit since I've seen better video from middle school A/V students. The plot is nonsensical, the editing can be seizure inducing at times, and the sound (apparently supervised by half deaf people) and lighting are issues thru out the entire movie. The director claims that the movie cost was $350,000, but it must be in confederate dollars (or most likely pesos) because I've seen movies produced on one tenth of that budget with much better production values. Their attempt at meta-humor looks like it was just an excuse to half-ass everything and claim it was on purpose.

Now I have to admit the acting in this movie was not bad compared to other "bad movies". The actors were pretty good considering what they had to work with. Maybe in a different world with a better director and editor this could have been a somewhat funny movie. The starring talent is wasted and the few funny moments that got me thru watching this, were thanks to secondary characters. (Props to the actor that plays the director's assistant, since he was the only one that made me laugh during the entire movie.)

Don't waste your money and time on this film. I saw it for free and I almost demanded my money back. If you want to see what a real Spanish comedy parody looks like check out Saving Private Perez.
