Torremolinos '73 (Unrated)

Release Date: April 15th, 2005 (NYC-Cinema Village), by First Run Features.
The Cast: Javier Cámara, Candela Peña.
In Spanish with subtitles.

Basic Premise: A poor husband and wife end up in the porn industry in order get rich.

Entertainment Value: Surprisingly, there is a lot of hilarious, off-beat and situational humor throughout this movie. Nothing is really meant to be taken seriously. Occasionally, the sex scenes are uncomfortable to watch, but most of them are meant for laughs. The husband and wife are both likeable, charismatic and are decent actors--in both the movie and in the movie-within-the-movie. It is pure fun from start to finish.

Spiritual Value: None is required or desired.

Insult to your intelligence: As long as you suspend your disbelief, there is none.

Number of times I checked my watch: 0

The Bottom Line: A very entertaining movie with an interesting premise that is surprisingly hilarious without going over-the-top.

Recommended Way to Watch: Movie Theater (1st Run)
