Policeman in Bad behavior!!!
12 March 2018 | by elo-equipamentosSee all my reviews

In my entire life this is the third Cantinflas's movie, the first time on DVD, l must confess that expect more, the character most of time with pants on the middle of buttocks and almost droping it, tight clothes, bad dressing, speaking loud, bad body posture, anyway a real character who made a huge success in your country and latin America, as well, some interesting gags and scenes, acceptable work however with no hope for another DVDs still sealed if this work is his best!!! Let's see ahead...

Resume:

First watch: 2018 / How many: 1 / Source: DVD / Rating: 6.5
