One more mexican failure
15 December 2003 | by pifasSee all my reviews

It never ends. It seems that México it´s nothing but a chain of movies that in the end no one cares about, only because they're so bad. Sin ton ni Sonia is one of the latest examples in that matter. It goes nowhere, it's plot is full of characters without charisma or intensity who think acting is based just on say correctly their dialogues. Of course there are some good mexican films 'cause there are alway exceptions to the rule, but leave this one out of that category. The lack of passion is more than evident in this motion picture which plot is fueled by absurdity and basic nonsense, and even if they look for make a relaxed statement in comedy, it falls real short to accomplish that.

Sin ton ni Sonia is full of cliché and formulaic ways to resolve it's many events. Don´t watch it unless you're willing to hate mexican cinema or waste a couple hours.
