Editorial reviews

"The movie is a jolly send-up of horse operas on Telemundo....It's fitfully amusing..."
Wall Street Journal - Roger Ebert (03/14/2012)

3 stars out of 5 -- "Veterans of sketch comedy, director Matt Piedmont and scripter Andrew Steele keep the laughs flowing..."
Total Film - Matt Mueller (07/01/2012)

3 stars out of 4 -- "This very funny spoof of telenovelas and classic Mexican westerns is decidedly offbeat and absurdly daffy....The over-the-top melodramatic story, written by Andrew Steele is ridiculously funny..."
USA Today - Claudia Puig (03/16/2012)

3.5 stars out of 5 -- "It's surrealist, elbow-to-the-ribs humor....By nature, Ferrell's just so sincere that he pulls the movie off..."
Box Office - Amy Nicholson (03/15/2012)

"A south-of-the-border BONANZA with faux-schlocky production values � a goofy mix of cornball earnestness, telenovela melodrama and, for good measure, magical realism with stuffed animals."
Los Angeles Times - Sheri Linden (03/16/2012)

"If you take the film on its own terms, as a kind of Elvis movie dipped in guacamole, it's quirkily engrossing. Ferrell is a good straight actor for the same reason that he's an inspired comedian: He commits himself to every moment." -- Grade: B
Entertainment Weekly - Owen Gleiberman (03/23/2012)

I live in France and this film comes from US because not available here . I loved it because it's a very odd & funny movie , such as some of other film in where we can find Diego Luna. Not a masterpiece , and not pretentious , you have a very good time with it . Half theater / half movie , delicious humor , very good actors like caricatures , and you feel like in a cartoon .

A small paradoxical , because by laughing , you attent to some sad situations of Mexico . This is the strenght of this movie .

This movie deserves good criticism , and it deserves to be seen in every country . Unfortunately , with such improbable project and film , it isn't the case .

Sorry for my english , I speak the language only since 1 year .
Cadi.
