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!
