This movie reminded me a lot of the European sex comedies of
the '70s (ludicrous comedic plot and lots of nudity) but with better looking
ladies and a visual flair reminiscent of De La Iglesia or Almodavar. Ochoa did
a fine job as the morally ambiguous cop wrestling the temptation to learn the
secrets of providing the "ultimate pleasure" to women. I was expecting
the usual over-the-top performance by Santiago Segura (who, along with Guillermo
Del Toro, co-produced the movie) but was surprised at how subdued his portrayal
of the priest was. Don't get me wrong, he did a great job but when I think of
Segura I think of a raving lunatic, not a mellow (but still zany) priest. All
in all it was an entertaining 84 minutes. I wouldn't recommend shelling out
big money for an import of this but would strongly suggest checking it out if
it comes to a local cinema or video store.
