For fans of spoofs
10 February 2011 | by ImdbidiaSee all my reviews

The Spanish Movie is a spoof -Leslie Neilsen-movies style- that uses as a main background the stories of The Others, The Sea Inside, and Open your Eyes, with some references to Alatriste, Pan's Labyrinth (by the way, a Mexican film), among others.

The movie has a good atmosphere and cinematography, and is decently acted. In fact, you get a few chuckles on the way, but they are very few and this is, basically, a silly movie that does not make you laugh enough.

Silvia Abril, Alexandra Jiménez, Carlos Areces, and Joaquin Reyes play the leading roles, and there are cameos by Leslie Nielsen himself, former child-star Joselito, surreal Spanish comedian Chiquito de la Calzada (in fact I was waiting for his appearance during the whole movie), and Spanish film directors Amenabar and Alex de la Iglesia.

A forgettable movie, entertaining at times, a bit too long. You'll enjoy it if you are a fan of Leslie Neilsen's Scary Movie, though.
