User Reviews

One of the worst series on Netflix

This show is about a 40-year-old woman desperate to regain her childhood fame. It mixes the brazilian overused "humor tactics" of unintelligent "punches" which basically consists in mocking the very own group of "elite" celebrities of brazilian Global actors/actresses and tv shows over and over. Let's be clear: this show is so bad it doesn't even deserves to receive a 2 stars. Even free Youtube shows with amateur actions have way better writting, acting and scenarios over all. I do not recommend anyone to waste their time watching this, especially when there are so many amazing series to be watched (either on Netflix or on other platforms).
