There's a lot of color, life, adventure and some humorous moments that makes this journey a completely magical one.

Is this film good no, but is it truly bad no. It does not have a compelling story or character or anything like that. In fact most of the film is just to show off the cinematography and Cantinflas doing his various talents. Then the rest is running into the various cameos of various lengths.

Just because of the cameos its big scope, and a certain nostalgia quality. Not really a mulitple watcher but there are somethings that can be enjoyed about it.
