‘Have a Nice Day!’ Movie Review: A Funny Mexican “Youthful” Comedy

The balance of simplicity

Have a Nice Day! (¿Encontró lo que buscaba?) is a Mexican comedy movie directed by Yibrán Asuad starring Álvaro Guerrero and Andrea Chaparro.

Today, Friday, the movie Have a Nice Day!, a film about old people who are looking to regain their youth, always with the friendly air of these “youthful” comedies.

Looking for a lighthearted and a bit (too) silly comedy for this Friday night? Then this is the perfect opportunity to let yourself be carried away along a path of simplicity and good intentions.

Movie Review

Simple, straightforward and charming, especially thanks to this fine actor named Alvaro Guerrero, who alongside Eduardo Minett makes up the curious tandem of maestro-pupil, with Andrea Chaparro providing the feminine balance.

A film that is more reflective than it is pleasant, tending very much to the nostalgic, that nevertheless, knows its place and doesn’t stray either to the side of “just because” comedy nor to the romantic side. Good dialogues and intelligent situations that simmer along, and know how to develop with the characters in a simple story that knows how to flow and build itself through dialogues that fit into the whole  naturally.

It isn’t a film that wants to “stand out”, it is not a film that wants to remain in the retina, neither does it force itself nor make an effort to do so self-consciously. It knows what its forte is and where the right tone for the comedy is – in the performance by a duo that works precisely by highlighting their differences and achieving a very, very classic comedy.

It achieves what it intends: to please without standing out excessively, to be kind and nice, and, above all, to keep the tone of a discourse on the passage of time without falling into absurd comedy or dramatism.
