Not his Best but effective

(4 out of 5 stars)
"filmed during the cold war era, this movie presents several fictional nations that are more like real nations as: Pepeslavia (Soviet Union), La Republica de los Cocos (Mexico) and Dollaronia (USA), the plot is really stupid in the way that it should be, after years of debating between the both main political systems, red ones and green ones (Communists and capitalists) they have decided to solve the conflict trough an ONU main assembly, in which every nation of the world will vote in favor
of red ones or green ones and then the winner is going to control the world.
there is only one vote left, the vote of the "La republica de los cocos" so Pepeslavia and Dollaronia are fighting to get that vote, and Cantinflas as ambassador of "La republica de los cocos" is deciding which one is going to get his vote.Pretty Simple and improbable plot but Cantinflas Manage to make it work, because of his charisma he delivers a lot of funny moments, and a time of reflection.Put special attention to his final speech, after nearly 40 years it can still makes you reflect."
Cantinfla's Charisma Pulls It Off
(5 out of 5 stars)
"The plot is pretty simple and the story somewhat predictable as the capitalist and communist countries try to manipulate Cantinflas so as to win his vote. What really makes this movie is Cantinflas himself. His humor and wit are worth seeing, and being a fluent Spanish speaker, I'd say that Cantinflas' Spanish can make one laugh more than any other Spanish-speaking actor I've ever seen. It's also clean, kind, and timeless, which is more than I can say for other comedians. His charisma and energy in his witty responses in Su Excelensia kept my interest and kept me laughing to the point where I'd see this movie and any other of his films over and over again in hopes of picking up some of his Spanish wit myself."
