User Reviews

 
Neurotic and paranoid hero is discovered by television.
26 March 2006 | by jotix100See all my reviews

Ricardo Darin, one of the best actors that emerged from Argentina in the last decade, deserved much better than this comedy, that will not add anything to his resume, or career.

The basic problem lays on the weak screen play that director Eduardo Milewicz and his co-writer, Carmen Lopez-Areal, concocted as a vehicle for Mr. Darin. We are asked to believe this burned-out television writer, and aspiring novelist, is worthy of a full length feature.

As a comedy, the film is not as funny as it might have seemed in the written page. Ricardo Darin tries to give Samy something the poor loser is lacking of, but doesn't succeed. The ebullient Angie Cepeda is seen as Mary, the woman who makes a popular hero out of Samy. The writers asks us to believe that this neurotic man, a product of the local television, doesn't see how he has been manipulated by Mary in believing he became popular on his own merits.

While the film is by no means, a failure, the promise of a funny movie is not to be found in it. Better luck next time Mr. Darin.
