moviebuff’s review published on Letterboxd :
Will Ferrell's parody of the Latino telenova. I don't speak or understand Spanish (relying on subtitles) but I still enjoyed this movie. I understand that if you're bilingual, the satisfaction becomes greater because of deliberate subtitling errors to add humour.
But the acting and sequences were really over the top. And yes, Genesis Rodriguez is very beautiful and has nice boobs to match. The infusion of typical telenova background music rocks. Some of the tunes were quite nice. Credit to Will Ferrell for giving a credible Spanish speaking lead performance, even though it's not his native tongue.
A fair defence against the Latino stereotype as drug dealers. Very entertaining film.
