It's funny how it's the kind of movie that people either seem to love or hate, think is cool or totally lame.

It happens to be a favorite of mine whereas my wife hates the film and thinks it's totally lame.

I like the story, I like the characters, I like the slow pace, I like the humor. Did you notice the characters, for the most part, don't show much outward emotion? Pedro is the most extreme example, but they're all like that. I identify with the characters in that way.

I wished I lived right next door to them. We'd be good friends as well as good neighbors. I like the location too.
Tina was as sweet as sugar. Too bad it was a fiction film.

I liked it a lot.

Nacho Libre was good too, but not quite as good.

Gentlemen Broncos was okay, I might need to watch it again.

...not sure if that director has made any other films...I'll have to look it up.

But yeah, definitely a polarizing film for a lot of people.

I quit watching it after about 20 minutes because I found it boring as heck. Maybe my ADD was acting up. I really liked Nacho Libre but haven't heard of Gentlemen Broncos.

Richard Hell, of all people, wrote an interesting review of it. He wasn't a fan.

Personally, I'm not in love with it, but it has some gags that make me laugh. Sometimes life feels full of Uncle Ricos.
