Argentinian romantic comedy
28 October 2008 | by juanveliz7See all my reviews

Right from the start we know it's very cliché and totally corny, so if you're not up for it, don't watch it.

It's a comedy of errors about a shy bus driver and his relationship with the town school teacher. She asks him to do her a favor that winds up producing a lot of awkward situations

You have to accept the fact that you're not gonna watch the next 'When Harry Met Sally' and let yourself be amused by the film. The characters are endearing and there are some funny scenes. And since it's a feel-good movie, you are bound to leave the theatre feeling good...
