Goofs

Even though the movie states that in 1975 a cataclysm destroyed Europe and East Asia which led to the course of history as we know it being altered (which explains the fictional cities and futuristic technology in contemporary times), characters make references to movies made after that point in time, most especially the Star Wars Saga and Toy Story.

Santos
3 January 2009 | by thatnicSee all my reviews

I totally agree with Julio Lopez. This is the worst Chilean film I have ever seen and practically the worst film I have ever seen at all. Moreover it was like a bad joke and a double irony as I went to the cinema on the day of the "Santos Innocentes", the Chilean equivalent of April Fool's day and indeed felt a fool when I came out. Strangely enough, I also got stuck on "Ed Wood" and with both films came out with the feeling of frustration that I had wasted both time and money by going to see this film. There are some disgusting scenes of one of the comic characters, a fly, eating excrement, reminding me of Pasolini's 120 days of Sodom, the only film I have ever walked out of. I should have done the same here. When I got back, I entered the IMDb and saw Julio's comments and decided that however much the local TV may plug a film, I will check the user rating in IMDb first!
