Goofy, but I loved it
Mark Kuykendall | Dallas, Texas United States | 11/09/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Who knew that Chileans could be so goofy? Certainly not I. I must admit initially I was attracted by the box cover and was really anticipating much of anything. But then I watched it. And watched it again. And if I had a lousy day at work, I'll watch it again. It's light (ok, non-existent)on message or moral judgment, but some days you just can't be bothered with heavy. And oh, by the way, Sigrid Alegria is my new favorite actress."
Hilarious View into Chilean Sexuality

"I was priveleged to see this movie in theaters while living for a decade in Santiago. I ordered the DVD as a gift once it became available.
The movie follows the stories of various Santiaguinos, of varied socioeconomic backgrounds (an elementary school teacher, a butcher, a writer, and a successful architect) and show their handling of myriad daily sexual issues that they face.
For those unfamiliar with Chile and its people, this movie is a huge step forward from the standard conservative and inhibited Chilean persona.
It is both hilarious and touching (albeit explicit; not for anyone under 18). It does not disappoint."
Bedroom comedy updated

"One of these dysfunctional couples includes a husband whose philandering borders on obsession, but driven to rage by the idea that his wife even thinks that kind of thought herself. She doesn't, of course, but that's no excuse. Another couple consists of a man and his son's pretty teacher - never mind that each is already coupled somewhere else. The third pairs long-suffering Maca with a husband that no woman deserves, at least in bed. His idea of foreplay seems to consist of tugging her undies out of the way. No wonder the poor woman doesn't get much out of it. Even her gyno exam, usually about as sexy as an oil change from what I'm told, gives her more and gentler attention than she ever gets at home.
The males come in for some well-deserved bashing: the supposed adult with teenage libido and impulsiveness, the graying guy after the cute yonger woman, and the insensitive boor. All of this gives plenty to laugh at, with pleasant eroticism (well, mostly pleasant) throughout. And in the end, pretty much everyone gets what they deserve - especially Maca, the poster girl for the idea that there are no frigid women, just clumsy men. If you're up for a light bit of comedy with its clothes off, you might like this one.
