A light-hearted adventure....
16 May 2015 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

This comedy is a bit of a change of pace for Pedro Infante. This Mexican superstar usually played very nice characters in his films-- respectful, kind and sweet. Here in "Los Tres García", by contrast, he along with his two cousins are total jerks! Yes, like a typical Infante film he is the lover--but this one, Luis Antonio García, believes in making out with as many women as is humanly possible...as well as fighting and being a general hellraiser. As for his cousins, José Luis García and Luis Manuel García, they are also hellraisers--who love to scrap with each other and who are also lovable rogues. This drives their grandma crazy, as they are just like their deceased fathers! Of course, watching this feisty woman, it's easy to see that the apple didn't fall far from the tree!

The film finds Grandma about to celebrate a birthday and the cousins try, though not very well, to stop their fighting and act like a happy family. But two huge problems intervene--a pretty American lady arrives and all three fall for her and additionally the López brothers are coming to kill them! Apart from that, everything is just fine!

This is a very enjoyable and light-hearted film. It's undemanding and fun. I laughed at a few of the comedic scenes--such as the photos on the wall and during the dance. My only complaints are minor. During one of the singing numbers where the three cousins serenade the girl (though she isn't actually home), the lip syncing isn't very good. Also, a serious problem, but not the fault of the filmmakers, is the lousy captioning--like the Spanish-speaking interpreter really didn't know English all that well!
