Adolfo, a thirty something security guard, is going through a bad patch. Not only his lifetime girlfriend has just to finished with him to be a guy with no ambition but, moreover, he becomes the target of a series of thugs led by Vázquez, a dangerous criminal who has just escaped from jail. Also he discovers that his father has a double identity. He is not a farmer engaged in the production of cold meat - as Adolfo has believed all his life, but Anacleto, a secret agent who is a bit down and the man who locked Vázquez up in jail thirty years ago. Adolfo will have to leave his comfort zone and work with his father, the person that Adolfo get on worse with in the world to survive the revenge of Vazquez and while, between shootouts and chases, trying to get his girlfriend back.Written by
I haven't read the comic, so I can't compare those two. I can say that this is very silly and it makes no excuses for that. It also is pretty violent for a silly comedy. There are consequences (at certain places) that lead to people dying violently. So while this has premature/adolescent jokes, it also has blood in it.
Having said that, it does seem to swerve from comedy to serious action from time to time. If you don't mind that jumping through hoops and didn't want to show it to your kids anyway, you will be able to enjoy it for what it is. It may be mostly predictable but it also has some very interesting choices character wise. The gum joke does not really work as a pay out, the name reference (also in the title) has a slightly better fate. Still there are too many jokes that fall short of their potential, but there's also still a lot that is entertaining for it to have been a complete disaster
