Juan and Richi Osorio are two brothers that in the early 90's created a musical duet called Supergalactic, which get the No. 1 in the hit lists with the single "Pool Party Time". 20 years later, Juan is a pool maintenance worker and Richi still trying to repeat the success of his youth, playing in crummy places for elderly people. When the mayor of their natal town call them to reunite Supergalactic and recite the street cry of the town's feasts, Juan and Richi decide abandon their differences in order to pretend that they are two music stars in the top of their careers, hoping that the mayor pay them an important amount of money. But the grudges between the brothers and the intention of the mayor to use Supergalactic to recover his ex girlfriend Silvia will turn the town's feasts in a true fireproof for everybody.Written by
Berto Romero and Andreu Buenafuente are well-known comedians / actors / TV presenters, and have been very popular over the years. Their quick wit in interviews, and complementing styles have assured them their place in Spanish TV history.
The film tells the story of two has-been pop-star brothers who've spent several years not speaking to each other. They receive a call from the mayor of their home town to head the Easter celebrations.
The film has several laugh-out-loud moments, and was fun to watch. It's not a big blockbuster as other recent Spanish films have been (there were only two of us in the cinema) but we had a good time laughing at the ever widening gap between the traditional rural Spain and the modern city world and their seemingly irreconcilable differences.
The film's not perfect, but it's worth watching.
