The title translates as 'The Best Summer of My Life' but this is easily 'The Worst Hour of Mine'... I say an hour as I couldn't manage to watch it to the end. The lead-actor, Leo Harlem is a very popular Spanish stand-up and he's good at it BUT an actor, he ain't! He reads every line like it's a punchline to a joke, every line is rushed. He's by no means the only one guilty of poor acting, it feels like the cast are reading their lines for the first time, no emotion, no feeling, no... acting!
The plot is fine if unoriginal but the film falls flat at every turn. It could be slightly improved with subtitles or dubbed but in its original format, it's best avoided.
