This movie had a great cast of actors. Manolo Fabregas, who was also a talk show host and theater impresario; Lucha Villa, a very popular singer; Sara Garcia, "Mexican cinema's granny"; Hector Suarez, an irreverent comedian; Luis Manuel Pelayo, who was about to become a very successful game show host; and others.

Of course this movie exagerates that but I think having been born in Mexico City, this movie reflects that very well. Everything happens in one single period of 24 hours. The acting is great and the talking hard to follow in Spanish to everybody but people from Mexico City. I can hardly wait till it comes in DVD. Highly recommended.
