I am a big supporter of Portuguese movies so I try to see as much as I can. This was one of the most seen Portuguese movies of 2013 so I was curious.
This is a movie adaptation of a TV show called TeleRural which is a caricature of some Portuguese stereotypes taken to the extreme. Personally I can't say I was disappointed because I already knew the type of humor depicted here.
It is a waste of time. It's a bad and very plain story, with a very particular type of acting that I don't enjoy. The type of humor is very one dimensional, sex based and nothing else. The script is weak to say the least, the actors don't shine (how could they), all in all it is a very amateurish experience.
A waste of time and resources.
