Does not achieve the objective
13 September 2020 | by faer_krSee all my reviews

A Mexican family movie. It is about a girl who wants to enter a cycling competition but how her mother does not let her decide to do a casting to find a father who will help her with permission without them knowing. Paid for with the fiscal stimulus, this film would hit theaters and Netflix took it for its catalog. The film does not have the necessary cohesion, it is arrhythmic and loose. The ending doesn't make any sense and is out of the context of the film, plus it's very forced. They try to talk vaguely of letting go of fears and taking risks in life but they can't. Some performances are good and others do not reach what is required. Predictable like all of its kind. Exaggerated and ridiculous dramatic moments like a Mexican soap opera. Risky because it is not your typical romantic comedy. Avoidable if you are not a fan of Mexican movies.
