This is a brilliant film, particularly for showing to people who are learning Spanish - the story is amusing and quite silly, but it keeps people entertained! I thoroughly recommend it (in fact, this is the second copy I've bought since I lost my much-shown first one!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Loads of fun!!!! 24 May 2005

I ordered this film because I love watching Adriana Ozores and Maribel Verdu. They are great talents and drop dead gorgeous. Not to mention, Spanish cinema exceeds American movies for the most part when it comes to great writing and acting. There is more honesty in the characters as well as great entertainment. This is the story of 4 women who walk completely different paths in life. Although robbing a bank is not on my list of things I approve of, it is a very funny story on how they pull it off. Great writing makes it all come together. This is a film that can be seen over and over.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fun Caper 2 Jan 2004
By S. Sommerville - Published on
The characters are what made this movie so much fun. A single mother cleaning lady, a punk chick, a promiscious hair stylist and a rich widow all team up to rob a bank. The crooks in this film have so much concience, and their circumstances are ones that the average person can relate to.
The dvd itself is good also as it has "the making of" segment, which I found to be rather humorous. The acting is great, great script, overall it is a very funny movie, its great to finally see some great comedy from Spain.
5.0 out of 5 stars HILARIOUS!!! 6 Oct 2003

If you don't pee in your pants laughing with this one, you need a humor transplant! The Spaniards have finally come up with a movie true to their carefree, natural, witty nature. This movie would be second only to "Women on the verge of a nervous breakdown." I recommend it for those days when you just need a little comic relief in your life!
3.0 out of 5 stars funny 19 Oct 2005

This is one the very funny movies from Spain; but unfortunelly the quality of the DVD is really poor, that's why the 3 stars. But I repeat the movie is very funny.
5.0 out of 5 stars A VERY FUNNY COMEDY WITH SOME KIND OF DRAMA 28 Mar 2003
By A Customer - Published on
This film is about a robbery done by the most unlikely group of robbers, with Maribel Verdu (Y Tu mama tambien)
I strongly recommend this film.
