User Reviews

Mediocre with generous 5 stars.
16 September 2018 | by Aktham_TashtushSee all my reviews

In the most respected way,, this was barely enjoyable ,, and in some part it went to almost unwatchable .

The plot is ingenuine ,, but the script of all was just not good,, like if i was a 15 years old i'd maybe enjoy it ,, but the screenplay is so dull and disconnected ,,, the genre says Comedy/Drama ,., well the comedy was absent and the drama level was at best mediocre ..

The cast was Meh,, i mean i liked that guy "Vito Sanz" in "the laws of thermodynamics" but man here he was a bit extra ,, i really was counting on him to shake it up a little by bringing more comedy but nope ,, didn't work. .. as for the lead "Silvia Alonso" i looked her up, and she apparently did some TV comedy shows and a couple of movies last year and the one before ,, but honestly seen no impact what so ever ..

The movie over all is described as mediocre,, 5 stars is a bit much ,, but this year didn't really watch much Spanish comedy so i wiggled up a little .
