One of those "Oh God, where to
start?" films. How about this: a guy loses his wedding ring up the ass
of a hooker. In the process of trying to get it back, he accidentally
acquires 30 million pesetas worth of drugs and, understandably, also a
lot of enemies. But such a description only scratches the surface of
this romp across Hispanic pop culture, and familiarity with this would
help immeasurably, or else, like me, you will probably find the 'Eh?'
factor disturbingly high. The most fun is to be had watching the hero
ascend from clean-cut lawyer to a coke-head with a penchant for Russian
roulette; there is some good trashy fun here, but without the background, it is probably diluted too much for the general audience.
