a great and different type of humor
26 January 2002 | by arkerSee all my reviews

This movie marks the new beginning of Mexican comedies for this 2002, I think it deals with black comedy really well, Casas is a really good translator of Mexican tv´s showbusiness. The movie uses simple elements of Mexican social reality to take the moviegoer to its own reality, and show it as an "odd one" and really funny. This movie is intelligent and pungent.
