*Awesome* movie
27 April 2002 | by woody-imdbSee all my reviews

This is my favorite animation movie. Better than Toy Story, Monsters Inc., Shrek or Chicken Run. Juan Padrón is simply a genius: the story is really great, and the script is terribly funny; but I'm afraid you'll need to know some Spanish to enjoy it 110% :-)
