A light comedy about partying twenty-something Spaniards in the '80 s, CHA CHA CHA provides pleasant entertainment and provokes nostalgic comparisons with the darker, heavier '90 s Madrid party flicks so immersed in stark social themes. Perhaps its most appealing feature to European film buffs is the casting of today's biggest box-office draws dishing out what most people expect from the film: beautiful people enjoying the idealized mid-1980 s yuppie lifestyle. It is refreshing in its accurate somewhat romanticized evocation of the recent past.
