I assume the Egyptian movie is about the famous snack.

Try searching for "Kit Kat 1991" on Youtube. You get old commercials instead of the movie. :lol:

1. Torremolinos '73


2. Kit Kat
(Man, this Egyptian potboiler was a hard-earned check. With an annoying-as-hell main character (not helped by the actor's insisting on hamming it up throughout), the film just kept dragging from one dreary scene to the next. And wherein lay the comedy value?)

Torremolinos 73 has its good moments and then some... not so great moments. Sometimes I felt "Oh, maybe I'm actually enjoying this film ^_^ " ...and then the scene continues and the husband character does something that annoys me -_- Some of the scenes are done really well.

I would rather stare at a piece of a Kit Kat bar for two hours than to watch the Kit Kat film ever again.

1. Torremolinos 73 6/10
2. Kit Kat 4/10

@cocoa: In retrospect, I should probably have gone for a film that was even raunchier. Sorry for letting you down.

There is one: "This film was not made ​​for watching once". Although perhaps they actually meant "This film was not made for watching". I hope the film makes more sense than this review, otherwise I will start thinking it is nothing but tommy's revenge for having to do the sexy comedy round.

Hey, it's an official check, mind you.. -_-

Also, it's pretty evident that people can't understand this movie without watching it more than once. So can we make an amendment in the rule people should watch this film at least twice before vote?

Torremolinos 73 - captures the feel of the 70s quite well
Kit Kat - apparently the Egyptian sense of humor doesn't quite align with mine

1. Torremolinos 73 6.5/10
2. Kit Kat 5/10

I wonder how much is lost in the translation. The subs are not very good. There are a lot of lines where the subs clearly don't translate everything.

Well, there's a lot of physical "comedy", like the rowing boat scene and the motorbike scene. I bet you loved those.

These two films are reason why comedy in the WC could be a risky venture.

You need to explain that a bit more, Mario. I still think sex comedies are the way to go - if we somehow could get all managers in the next cup to do such a round, it would be the best thing to ever happen around here...

I stopped caring when I saw jackoff scene that intends to be funny. I'm too old to laugh at such poor attempts of humor.

What decided with me, is generally good feel althrough and totally disjointed direction in Egypt's film.
