An original and unique parody to reality shows.In Portugal, different celebrities, from different artistic areas, "live" together in a house where everything looks real, but it's not. Pure comedy and social satire.
Looking in hindsight after watching it for a 6th time in a period of 13 years one can only say it is the best Portuguese Comedy Movie ever produced. Thousands of funny remarks, alongside a character buildup that is creative and shows the character and friendship of Toni and Zezé. One might say the movie is inconsequential and is a sort of episode of their theatrical shows 'Conversa da Treta' but this movie goes beyond that: it shows them on a completely different format and playing different characters and moods of the characters. It adds more complex jokes that could only be put into context in movies. One might need to watch this movie two or 3 times before understanding all jokes and getting the deeper meaning of it (which i will not disclose), but in the end its extremely worth it, and you will laugh a lot, as it is almost impossible to not enjoy this kind of comedy. The only negative remark would be that this type of comedy would not be funny when translated or put into subtitles.
