There are no words that can express the true awesomeness of this Telenovela, ....It's just Telenovela cult classic Gold,
starring Malena Favela as the beautiful and innocent Roxaura Rios with a Heart of Gold and Mario Cimarro as Luis Mario Arismendi the hunky rich guy, that all the women want to; fall in love with/trick into marriage or destroy(because he didn't love/marry them.) Except of course his two loving sisters. All they want is for him to be happy and to brake him up with the woman he loves to make him marry their rich friend so that they can get their hands on her money. Now you might think then this Telenovela is somehow about Luis Mario, Its not, he is just the excuse for all the Drama. This is all about the women. Its Basically a really drawn out Hilarious Dramatic battle between gorgeous Latin women (cast for their looks and hot bodies and not their superior acting skills) It has it all, bad acting, evil plotting, regular cat fights, ridiculous over the top dramatic dialog, ingenious insults, ridiculous original story lines. (the baby born With no hands and no feet because the mother secretly drank during pregnancy) Classic clichés but with even more ridiculous twists (The wife that mysteriously disappeared at sea leaving her husband devastated (so she could run away with her lover) that magically returns one day with ....Amnesia!! (because she found out her husband had remarried and she was not having any of that, but didn't feel like explaining where she had been)
If you don't speak Spanish I am afraid much of the brilliance of the dialog might be lost in translation. But even if you don't speak Spanish fluently or maybe just a little, watch it anyway, It's a great fun way to learn. I recommend taking notes, write down the craziest lines and the bitchiest insults, work them into everyday conversations! (be careful though) and if you don't speak Spanish at all, seriously you need to learn it just so you can watch this. But if you don't want to just watch it with subtitles, I'm sure its still funny.
p.s. If you are the kind of person that exclusively watches meaningful black and white artistic films made in France, I don't recommend you don't watch this. But If you are the type of person that appreciates that TV can sometimes be so amazingly bad that its wonderful. then don't miss this.
