Below average comedy with usual ingredients as wild parties , embarrassing twists , silly laughs and disconcerting incidents
Miguel : Victor Clavijo , is an University student staying at his family house while his parents on holidays in Santa Pola , Alicante . One night , he discovers embezzlement at home a corpse along with his long time stranged brother , a botcher delinquent called Alex : Guillermo Toledo. Then , there suddenly appears a group of friends for a masked weekend party , the brothers endeavor to keep up appearances by hiding and strategically posing the cadaver during the party .And things go awry when girlfriend's Miguel : Elsa Pataky goes back from London . Later on , the Cuban Singer : Tamayo , who is really a dangerous mobster , sends a killer : Pere Ponce , for reckoning to Alex . As the murderer attempts to track him down and frantically hunting a drug stash. A quest that takes them under a car where is hidden a drug loot , but also explosives.
Fun comedy about two loser brothers gamely keep in the sillines flowing , being an unlikely and routine parody with no much sense .The main premise is simple and plain , as his parents are off to the beach , his sweetheart is in for a visit , what can go wrong ¿ . This cavorting cadaver slapstick has ridículous incidents , brief action , pursuits and lots of silly laughs . Including an amusing and bewildering pursuit between a car Seat 600 and an airplane . Plenty of regularly executed gags involving the well-preserved corpse , it should lure buffs of absurd comedy . Thin script with one joke premise done to death and full of confusion and mayhem, but funny .Being for those in the mood for the postMortem antics of a comedic stiff. This picture follows the wake of the American film , "Weekend at Bernie's" 1989 and sequel 1993, in which a series of unfortunate events happen when protagonists , Andrew McCarthy and Jonathan Silverman attempt to hide a corpse played by Terry Kiser . In this film titled : "The best is Yet to come" stands out its awesome main and support cast , full of newcomers to be continued a successful career during that decade and next , such as Victor Clavijo , Guillermo Toledo , Elsa Pataky, Pere Ponce ,Paula Echevarria, Carlos Santos ,Ivan Massague , among others . Other notable secondaries appearing are the followings : Eduardo Antuña , Tamayo , Fernando Chinarro, Lluvia Rojo , Maria Jurado, Secun de la Rosa , Eva Marciel , and several others .
It contains a lively and catching musical score by Manuel Villalta . As well as atmospheric and adequate cinematography by Andreu Rebes . The motion picture was ordinarily directed by David Blanco and Jose Semprun . Both of them have directed a few unsuccessful films , such as La sombra del Sol, El premio ,Ofni , Gruneisen , and Relaxing cup of Coffee. Rating 4/10
