A funny and romantic comedy with Spanish-star-cast and dealing with a likable trio of divorced men
16 November 2016 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

A fun comedy which is very funny and very romantic . The film deals with Joaquin meets Manolo and Juan Luis , who are also divorced . Their jobs are the followings : a commercial airline pilot (Juanjo Puigcorbe) , a sport radio commentator (Antonio Resines) and an architect (Imanol Arias). At the beginning they watch sports on television in the living room where takes place a strong discussion . They divorce their women : Susana (María Barranco) , Merche (Pastora Vega) and Esther (Kiti Mánver) but the trio meets a wonderful chance , as their common hatred of the opposite sex gives them the perfect excuse to live together in a luxurious apartment in downtown Madrid . Together , they establish rules to support their life as new bachelors , but with the agreement that they will watch out for each other in case any of them makes the mistake of falling in love with a woman again . They all break the rule after they aware how beautiful their new cleaning lady , Yoli (Cristina Marcos) , yet another divorcée , is . As everything changes when they attempt to seduce their sympathetic and attractive housekeeper.

This interesting as well as charming film is full of humor , agreeable scenes , entertainment and being quickly paced . Pereira's return to top form, with an intelligent and engaging script which uses amusing situations to give us a good movie in a high sense and intimate sensitivity and that kept me entertained for the almost 100 minutes of duration . Rightly enjoyable and fun-filled , milestone comedy which neatly combines humor , mirth , entertaining situations and amusement . The screenplay is plain and simple , three divorced men live together , share a flat , living in freedom , where they can smoke without trouble , dirty up without fear of being told off , constantly watch sports on television , have their one-night stands , etc , they remain without trouble till they hire a cleaning lady with whom the three flirt . The film gives a sour portrait of the divorced people , men and women , as their common hatred of the opposite sex . The plot flows quite smoothly , humour is never compromised . Common places about men and women relationships are broken non chalantly , and romance fits fine . Some flaws I can find is that some of the story lines are left and some character end up being implausible . This fun story displays a quartet of sensational protagonists : Juanjo Puigcorbé , Antonio Resines , Imanol Arias and Cristina Marcos . As nice acting by Juanjo Puigcorbe as Joaquín , a recently divorced airline pilot , Imanol Arias gives a sympathetic performance as the designer/architect who seduces young women and Antonio Resines as the good-tempered sport radio commentator .

This motion picture "All Men Are the Same" was produced by Cesar Benítez/Sogetel/ Carlos Orengo Productions , being well written and directed by Manuel Gomez Pereira along with his usual collaborators : Yolanda García Serrano and Joaquín Oristrell . Manuel usually writes his films and occasionally for other directors as "What Makes Women Laugh?" by Joaquin Oristell who in "Love Can Seriously Damage Your Health" is screenwriter and producer ; both of them are ordinary collaborators . Pereira is an expert on comedies as ¨¨Rose sauce¨, Why do they call it love when they mean sex ?¨, ¨Mouth to mouth¨ , "All Men Are the Same" , though he also has made some drama as ¨The hanged man¨ and this ¨Between your legs¨ . His latest projects, however , tanked as "Off Key" starred by an American-all star cast but was a failure both economically and artistically or simply didn't deliver as "Atrévete y Verás" . Nowadays , he directs TV chapters as ¨Gran Reserva¨ and ¨Cheers¨ series ."All Men Are the Same" or ¨Todos Los Hombres Son Iguales¨ resulted to be one of his greatest successes . It is followed by a TV series starring Tito Valverde , Josema Yuste , Luis Fernando Alvés , Ana Otero , formed by 67 episodes . And recently a Dominican Republic film (2016) directed by Manuel Gómez Pereira , distributed by Caribbean Films Distribution and starred by Christian Meier , Lizardo , Nashla Bogaert and Frank Perozo .
