As a teenager in Mexico, Nacho discovered that he could seduce girls by giving them gold rings. With his buddy Lucho, Nacho fornicated with many, many girls, and then never went out with them again. Sometimes Lucho "helped" Nacho by putting a date rape drug in the girl's drink, though Nacho was not aware of this. Being from a rich family, when Nacho finished high school, he went to Los Angeles to study medicine, not knowing that on his last night in Mexico he had impregnated Margarita. Lucho had actually drugged both Nacho and Margarita, leading to lack of inhibition and fornication. In the morning Margarita woke up naked and abandoned.

Good film, a bit drawn out but entertaining
29 January 2010 | by durward5139See all my reviews

I missed the first 5 of the series at present showing on the French Pacific satellite network.Am up to number 101 and looking forward to the finish in around 120. Some scenes were included to make the series to reach the 120 . The main problem I have with Frijolito X 45 minute X 5 day per week is that it seems that it is sent to Tahiti from France and every day the last 4 to 8 minutes is chopped off. In 2010, one would think that this type of annoyance could be omitted. All in all though I love this series and will look forward when the whole can be bought as a boxed DVD to be watched without interruptions.

Pedro, an alcoholic father desert his 3 children who are raised by the well off second husband of their mother. The older son-Francisco- manages a business. The middle child - a daughter is pressured by Francisco to become a nun whilst the Younger child- Ignacio- goes to Los Angeles to become a doctor. On his last day in Mexico before training for medicine, Ignacio "Nacho" goes to a disco where his friend Luchio introduce him to Margarita who becomes pregnant when she is drugged by a "spiked" drink from Lucho but she believe it to be from Nacho.On his return as a doctor, Nacho falls again in love with Margarita but she try to hate and hurt him all she can. The rest of the story weaves in and out of the many problems facing the two lovers with reconciliation and marriage at the end with father and son "Frijolito" reunited.
