¡¡¡Hilarious!!!
7 June 2000 | by dizySee all my reviews

Having enjoyed the "Supermachos" comic books as a student in Mexico in the late 60's, I was delighted to discover this film. Excellent job casting the characters--just like Rius'cartoons ¡Igualitos! I lent out my copy and am suffering til I can buy another!!!
