Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: While a substantial number of scenes are heavy-handed, the actor who plays Cantinflas- Oscar Jaenada - is a standout.
Rotten: You're left with that empty feeling of a surface barely scratched, when the legend that was Cantinflas deserves much more.
Rotten: Cantinflas wears viewers down with earnest hero worship.
Only if you knew his work.
Cantinflas is a Mexican treasure and this film is mainly an homage to his life and career. That is why a person alien to his work will not savor the quips, and situations that the movie denotes.
I enjoyed the movie as a kind reminder of Mario Moreno (Cantinflas). Like any movie dedicated to a great artist there will always be those that agree or disagree. However, it would have been best to make the movie as simple and well detailed as possible so anybody can get a true glimpse into the great mind and life of Cantinflas.
A must see for Cantinflas lovers!
Never enough of an Icon
The actor portraying Cantinflas did a great job. He mimicked Cantinflas' mannerisms & voice with virtual perfection. The director's use of specific colors and lights add to the film's dramatic tones, as well as the flawless transitions into comedic overtones... "Cantinflas" is a must see, an amazing homage to a comedic king.
Bad has a new meaning
This is a joke. Its the worst film ever done in the film history. Everyone must watch it, if wants to know what a nightmare is. Bad acting, bad story, bad art,horrible photography, and a criminal director. The whole package. A total insult to Cantinflas. Its good he is already dead.
