A really bad movie
17 September 2006 | by joenajasSee all my reviews

I am sorry but this is on the top 5 list of the worst movies ever. A complete apology to bad taste, lack of redeeming values, or to any values (including entertainment values for that matter). The acting is over the top, the references to many movies, (meet Joe Black, High Times in Richmond High, Some Kind of wonderful) and to styles and directors (Alex de la Iglesia, Kevin Smith) are somehow pathetic. I have seen some really good chilean movies in the last decade but this one is that kind of movie that will leave you mad for having wasted almost two hours of your life for watching it. Avoid it at all costs. It is that bad.
