Really nice movie. Saw it tonight and wasn't disappointed. Most of the performances are good. The movie is very funny and entertaining.
The movie contains a lot of adult scenes and cursing as we are used to see in Portugues movies, I think the sexual scenes are a bit too much, but the cursing is cleverly used and it's funny, not exaggerated like most of the Portuguese movies usually have.
If you want to spend a good time, laugh and even get emotioned, try it.
I understand that most of the people who know Edgar Pera's movies are probably disappointed cause his work is more experimental then this. This is a very commercial comedy with some cliché moments in it. But still if you forget about what you are expecting of Edgar and just see it as if you are watching a movie from a director you don't know, I'm almost sure you will enjoy it.
