Entertaining and funny Mariano Ozores film about two unfortunate as well as botcher colleagues , Pajares and Esteso
25 April 2016 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

In this buddy movie there are colored actors , comical sketches , amusement , humor , nudism and entertainment . Fun and silly comedy about a duo of sympathetic rogue men , being regular though professionally directed by the prolific Mariano Ozores . Bemusing story with embarrassing moments and passable acting by likable comedians : Esteso and Pajares . It deals with a sympathetic pair of unlucky as well as roguish people , Roque (Andres Pajares) and Federico (Fernando Esteso) , who live without working and carry out their ¨Timos¨ with unexpected consequences , scheming to win an amount of money , at whatever cost . In this flick there is humor , fun and guffaws . An amusing but average Spanish comedy film and with its ups and downs . It deals with a peculiar duo , Roque and Federico , who survive using thousands of tricks and fakes . Roque is a hustler who lives at Federico's home in which takes place multitude of antics along with Federico 's wife named Petra (Mirta Miller) . Later on , Federico decides to become Roque into a boxing champion . As Federico meets a boxing promoter and Gym owner called Paco (Antonio Ozores) and both of whom scheme -along with a true boxer ('Dumb Dumb' Pacheco)- to let win Roque at the national championship . But things go wrong when they ask for betting to a wealthy person (Narciso Ibáñez Menta) , a mobster-alike who has some nudist bodyguard women . At the end it takes place a bewildering combat between Roque and 'Dumb Dum' Pacheco .

Fernando Esteso and Antonio Ozores are two cool Spanish actors , usually playing a duo of unfortunate , roguish , swindlers as well as bungling people . They usually made couple in a lot of films and achieved much success in the 80s . And ¨Yo Hice a Roque III¨ was one of their greatest hits . The movies they played were funny and with many support's actors . The films were with short budget and lackluster but including comedy and lots of fun . Those contained many nude girls , laughs and slapstick , being mostly directed by Mariano Ozores , a craftsman filmmaker and writer , in fact he wrote the disconcerting screenplay , he recently won a Goya Award (2016) to his long and fruitful career . The latter made with these two famous comedians , -Fernando and Andres Pajares- several films , as they had various years partnership between the two leads , such as ¨Agitese Antes Usarla¨ , ¨Al Este Del Oeste¨, ¨Los Liantes¨, ¨Los Energeticos¨, ¨La Lola Lleva Al Huerto¨ , ¨El Currante¨, El Hijo Del Cura¨... This ¨Yo Hice a Roque III¨ is a charming as well as embarrassing comedy that contains crazy events , nudism , amusement and absurd situations . There are some nice jokes in the film and the cast , playing eccentric characters , make a cosy fit . It takes a simple concept , a duo of shameless friends execute petty tricks in similar style to classical films of Commedia all'Italiana of the fifties . It results to be a ¨Rocky's parody¨ , including a peculiar imitation to Stallone , when Pajares/Roque is going up stairs ; in addition , the musical score takes parts of Bill Conti's soundtrack and adding a splitting screen . The picture has not intellectual stimulus whatsoever , though it has some fun and hilarious moments . Humor is sometimes cheesy and gross-out with numerous naughty and picaresque situations such as sex jokes , adulteries , jealousy , and erotic scenes . The film attempts to give laughs and it works here and there , resulting in an amusing though middling film . My feelings are extremely mixed but I must admit there are some brief and no very enjoyable laughters ; however , it also packs uneven comedy , piggy humor , and farcical happenings . It gives a silly but ironical Spain and Madrid outlook and describes some ¨Timos¨or ¨Fakes¨ carried out by the peculiar protagonists . Supporting cast is plenty of familiar faces such as : Francisco Camoiras , Rafael Hernández , Adrián Ortega , Florinda Chico , Eduardo Calvo , Ramón Lillo and addition , Antonio Ozores who often appears in films directed by his brother Mariano Ozores and along with Esteso , and Pajares . Including several ¨Destape¨ or nudist actresses ,such as : África Pratt , Gabriela Mosch and Mirta Miller .

¨Yo Hice a Roque III¨ is a mediocre farcical romp , being middlingly directed by Mariano Ozores in his usual style and had much success in the Spanish box office . Mariano's family origin is into show business , being son of Mariano Ozores Sr and brother of José Luis Ozores and Antonio Ozores . Furthermore , uncle of Adriana Ozores and Emma Ozores . He has a prolific career , and many actors and technicians worked and ate thanks to the huge success of his films . Ozores is a writer and director , especially in comedy genre such as : Disparate Nacional , Tahiti's Girl , Brujas Magicas , Los Presuntos , Cuatro Mujeres Y Un Lío , Tío ¿De Verdad Vienen De París? , Alcalde Por Elección , Ellas Los Prefieren... Locas , El Apolítico , Jenaro El De Los 14 , Manolo La Nuit , El Abuelo Tiene plan , La Llamaban La Madrina , La Graduada , Venta Por Pisos and many others . Being his ordinary actors , the followings : Alfredo Landa , Lina Morgan , Paco Martínez Soria , Antonio Ozores , Jose Luis Ozores , Juanito Navarro and , of course , Fernando Esteso and Andrés Pajares .
