2019, City of Madrid (Madrid, center to Spain and capital's country). According to himself, Javier is the perfect father of the 21st Century: working as CEO and computer technician for an important mobile phone company, he is all the days lost in his laptop programming new apps for an incoming project, neglecting his wife Marisa and his five children (teenager Sara, preteen Carlota, child Rocío and Dani, and little child Paula) despite he believes that all is right, that he knows perfectly to his children and that Marisa simply exaggerates any thing needlessly. It despairs to the own Marisa, who nicknames Javier as a perfect "husband brother-in-law" by the way to fix any trouble in the belief that he's perfect in anything he does, at the same time that she only counts with the help of Rosaura, Marisa's house maid, to care the children. But the situation explodes when Javier gives Marisa bad news: he cannot fulfill the long-time promised travel to the Caribbean travel to celebrate ... Written by Chockys

User Reviews

A GREAT family film!
5 December 2019 | by isabelg_mirandaSee all my reviews

Normally comedies are unintelligent, or use dirty jokes, slapstick... This comedy was funny, just tender enough to be cute without causing diabetes, and fun all the way through. Really, really recommended. I'd give it a seven, but it has a lower grade than it deserves, so I'm giving it an eight for it to get its deserved rating.

The kids deserve special mention. It must have been hell to film a movie with five child actors, but these five were REALLY good in their roles, really well chosen, and all in all, really funny. I hope to see more of them in the future.

Really recommended for a Christmas watch.
