Confusing, Excruciating, Humor lost in translation: i didn't get the humor, Mainly for a spanish-speaking audience, Found some of the comedy topics offensive

See it if You speak Spanish fluently-I just didn't get the jokes. You think kidnapping & terrorism are appropriate topics for comedy.

Don't see it if You don't speak Spanish. You don't know Spanish culture. This is not for a non-Spanish audience.

66
Confusing, Disappointing, Inappropriate, Politically incorrect

See it if you are a fluent Spanish speaker, & you find humor in terrorism, drugging someone without their consent, abortion and infidelity. Nice set.

Don't see it if Subtitles were slow and hard to read, and I'm guessing the humor was culturally based, because I didn't get a lot of it. Energetic, though.

79

See it if you enjoy farce and dark comedies. It would be better if you understood Spanish. English subtitles were available, but they lagged a bit.

Funny, Confusing
