Great Villains
12 April 2004 | by thiagomoSee all my reviews

"Celebridade" has the basics soap opera plot: good vs. evil. It's from "Vale Tudo" (a masterpiece!) author Gilberto Braga, who's very talented. It's not his best work ("Vale Tudo", hello!), but it's pretty good.

Here he tells the story of the celebrity Maria Clara Diniz (gorgeous Malu Mader) who just wants to be happy and find a great love (she's so f***ing boring!). Then she and Fernando Amorim (Marcos Palmeira) soon fall in love. But not everything is peace... there's the diabolical Laura (wonderfull played by Claudia Abreu), who pretends to be a good girl who just wants do help Maria Clara, but in fact is plannin' a revenge against her. Laura's beautiful and very charming... she sleeps with everybody to get what see wants: Maria Clara poor! She's helped by boy toy Marcos (Márcio Garcia). There's a lot of clichés, but it's Laura and the other villains who really shine. Besides Laura and Marcos, there's the megalomaniac Renato (Fábio Assunção) who doesn't like Maria Clara either and will fall in love with Laura... but when he finds out that she was playin' him, he will plot against her. There's also Ana Paula (the great Ana Beatriz Nogueira), Maria Clara's sister, who helps everyone who wants to destroy her sister. To finish, there's the crazy Beatriz (Deborah Evelyn), Fernando's ex wife.

With good dialogs, it's on his villains that "Celebrity" has power.... the good guys are boring and boring... and boring!

Mention to the funny performances given by Deborah Secco (Darlene), Juliana Paes (Jaqueline) and Adriana Alves (Palmira).
