Entertaining bilingual romp
1 April 2016 | by jojo-acapulcoSee all my reviews

The IMDb indicated that this movie, in English, would open 6 April, so I was curious when it opened here in Acapulco on April 1, advertised as a Spanish language film. About half the dialog in the version I saw was in funny but very vulgar Spanish (without titles) and half in English (with Spanish subtitles).

Compadres (Buddies) is an above average buddy flick with more than a little violence. It starts Omar Chaparro and Joey Morgan as the buddies, and both are great. Eric Roberts and Kevin Pollack, who are listed first and second in the IMDb cast list have minor roles and both are them more than adequate. The 'storyline' says the cop's wife is killed but in the version I saw, it's his girlfriend (novia) who is kidnapped.
