The woman of thousand secrets





This is the first book I ever read on history fiction. a  huge volume of 560 pages with  71  mini chapters in in its Greek   version marketed by the only Greek  pocket  book publisher Bell. This  is one of the books i bought  for the very ' high cost'  (hmmm) of  Eu 2 ,as the man who had it wanted to sell out his limited now  stock due to change of business , as mentioned in the previous blog postings  . Now after  reading the book  i feel  it is very well  underpaid comparing also  to the original american  book price of $17 as sold by Amazon and  the excellent at least  story .

This story is really amazing . Will not dig into the story  as many others in Goodreads and Amazon UK and US  have  noticed but will stress on the  plot  and other  by- story material . It is a very dense story with a skeleton- plot  of more than 7 pages , and could be really can be described as  soap opera  although it is not junk quality. Nearly everything is mixed in  : love,sex  passion ,intrigues fights and so on .

Narration is very vivid and you easily can be absorbed  by its  run.  As a jobless person i dedicated about 10 hours to thoroughly  read the book for a total of  2 days with no loss  of interest.  I  preferred to conclude reading it  read it than commencing  to write my own book which is curently  in its 4th edition .
The story blends very well  with historical facts (?) of the Mexican region and the tribes of Mexico and the neighbour countries

Very   highly  recommended  11/10

The unquiet - John Connoly




This is another book  bought with the  low price of only $2 from the  old pal. Nothing more  on this to write  nearly the same  over and over again
This a   voluminous book  from the store with ca 460 pages in a pocket format. this is the Odyssey of Charlie Parker  , a detective to find out a mysterious  disappearances  of children  several years ago and Daniel Clay a psychiatrist  involved in these  disappearances and  sometimes killings.
The story seems  quite  interesting but more  detailed than i  could expect to the level of tiring me , with a quite complex story

3.5/5  a lively writing , thriller and sometimes horror

STEVEN KING :BLAZE



Steven KIng is for me a story of love ad hate . reading his  story on I shudder at your touch thrilled me very much so tat i stopped reading it as it goes against my beliefs .HIs other  book 'twilight zone stories' with 14 stories is better to me though  many of them are not easy to understand them , but Blaze  story was my first narration  that i enjoyed much , and was a idea to write  some short stories based on this character .
This is one of the 6-7 books of Greek version  bought at  a low price .

Blaze is a man adventurer with a pal who is his alter ego and boss  . This pal  dies and Blaze is determined to catch a  baby for money . This story  goes in parallel with his story when he was  a overgrown child of  limited  intelligence and how he grown as adventurer
The story is a  bit funny and King makes you feel sympathy  to this bad guy.

7/10

Ann Mah :Kitchen Chinese



Most of the novels read the summer time were bought from a pal's  store who changed his business style , from newspaper  to nuts . For this reason he tries to sell our his book stock offering it in vey low price  ie from $7  to $2 for  the greek  versions of pocket books > i have bought several of them ,around 6  ,most  are of terror and horror literature. All these books  are the greek versions  from the  Bell publishers the locales of the pocket books

This book however  was bought from another  pal's  store at the normal price of $7 for the greek edition  which i think is still low  comparing to the  price offered by the original American publisher
The Greek version of Ann mah's  book contains  250 pages with 43 lines of 10 picas Times font , and the same applies to all other editions and all book are bonded with a plastic cover to protect the casual viewer  to damage it . I thought  that this book  may  contain recipes of  Chinese  kitchen . I was  slightly disappointed  that it was just a novel .

As  i read from various sources in the net , the original  book aso contains  several recipes on it end .The greek version does not. Now on the story . without writing spoilers. This is possibly the authors  story  when she left USA to work in the contemporary  CHina to work for a newspaper in Beijing and the culture shock she felt  living in a place far different from the  country she leaved or grown. She is a 30 yrs old girl and 3nd generation  Chinese. and this book describes  her adventures and  feelings  all the time  she leaved there . As specialist in cooking  she  writes about  Chinese cooking  visiting  Chinese restaurants in behalf of the  newspaper though  she understands that  her knowledge is still quite limited .

The story  is quite funny . lots of humor , and full of emotions to the level of naivety and much of romance ,but no suspense . MUch of the story nearly the first half of it, is dramatized in the USA 
Though  this bok refers to cooking , it is sometimes gets me tirred  to read what she ate and skipped that passage  . This reminds me quite much the way the book KL underground was writen , also by a Chinese.  May i suppose it is the srtyle of Chinese  writers to write  all the time what they are eating???

Rating  7/10  and recommended  for  enjoying your free  time.

I shudder at your touch

 I have bought this book  this year from a former newsstand at  very low price  of just E2 out of E8 due to selling out the older book stock .the seller  has changed his business orientation onto  slling nuts and the same

This is a book  with short stories from  many  well known (?) writers of terror including seven king  and Angela Carter . of a total of 22 stories . As I see from the  nert this book is quite old  produced on 1992 , and early the same happened for the geek edition   made  from a  company  who started making computer books and magazines publication on early 80s
There  was also noticed in the book  that the publisher Slung would edit a second book with more 22 stories
IN this post I will refer the  ones  I read so far 
These stories are supposd to show an erotisme mixed with horror Only a few stories can be  idintiifed as wither  horror erotisme. and several others can only be described as  just simple fiction.
 
Revelations of Becka Paulson : a rather funny but frightening   story by Steven King with a woman who was shooted by a gun and hears the voice of J Christ . A fiction and terror story  that made me stop after a while for rather ideological reasons but not from dark fiction ..* a rather low  ratε concerning
  
Sea lovers  : a epic type story  written in a rather poetic  way showing a  bad mermaid with vengeance against male people. this story   inspired me a story to my special edition This is my fav story *****

Psychopomp :This story reminds m the film story of Benjamin Button ****

A glowing future: Packeting  for yor ex spouse can be sometimes annoying. This is such a story **

Consanguinity : finding and marrying a man is many times vey typical > But what can happenif this man is really a ghost ?? ****

The conqueror   worm : a macabre  story with a worm  winning over a relation to be dissolved  ***

Master : by anegla carter I don’t like her way of writing as too coarse and  this story falls into the same way of wrting *

A quarter  past you : A clear fiction story with  nice suspense but not of horror . A man gets in between a couple withot rally involving into them . A like a platonic person…***

Death and the single girl  : One of the funniest I read so far .Mr death is personalized by a man identified to kill  a girl  but has lost all opportunities *****

Wings : a  very shirt story  with a young girl asking for  sex  with a man ***

Keeping house : A  housewife into a thriller  story having a tenacity  to klean the house to the level   that all of her family relatives   left her **

Betrayal Danielle steel




I have read the geek edition of this book printed here in 13 into 290 pages of A5 size and 10 picas . The conclusion of the reading was in just 3 days for a total of 7 hours

Will not focus on the story itself but in the structure of the book

Although the story seems  quite interesting and easy to follow and read the plot is quite simple that can be noticed in only one page or in just 35 lines with some secondary  filler points referred outside the ‘action’ , though  minimal,  of the story

 The story is quit predictable and can be identified from nearly the start  of the book  ie from the  chart 8-9 which are the scenes of the story. Very many repetitions occur throughout the story that made me quite tiring and i preferred to skip them

The story has not strong ‘shocks’  except some unexpected happenings  that cold still be easily  awaited (as for example a killing and a torture ) making the story quite smooth . Please note that although I have not read so many books  of this kind (novellas or romance ) , I have watched more than 700 movies the   last 10 years in TV or in cinema

As in result  the story is quite simple  easy to read and follow  but quite slow paced  more romance than  action for this reason I rate it 3/5 Stil better  than  the previous book Fiancee Caper (Maureen child )

Langenscheidt Liliput German Latin





This is one of my smallest books bought in mid70s if I  still remember clearly and bought the time  I knew German language I learnt separately during  the low school in the German School . 


The book  is just 4.8 x3 x2 cm thick  and contains about 10000 entries in 640 pages .




Unfortunately I have forgot nearly all my German but I think that this small book can always stay  in my shelf  due to its very nice  dimensions

This  is a English written  book with trivia records ,from the last 15 years  from various sources ,newspapers, statistics  and the net with (un+)interesting things  and info of the country .It  contains 160 pages full if info in an anarchic way I.e. no relation between themes and subjects  ,this is is the reason it is referred as random. In addition it includes many pictures graphics and tables

I have this book  for several years.It is one of the few i use evrytime due to it easy to read short texts

The book is on the other side very interesting and sometimes funny.A book hat has the reson to be in your shack in case you are interested in this country.

Reviews for nongreek movies (all together )

Most movies aired by nationwide TV channel. 

 
Mummy Dragon
A movie wih impressive graphics full of action and good plot. what ididnt understand is on how the emperor 's supenatural power degraded by the  time and was  as a typical  chinese warrior tby the end ,or i m missing something ? for example
Jet Li  once in a bad role !
3/5


Corelli's mandolin
An excellent movie I didnt know that it was a book untill my wife told me. A romantic story during the time of the 2nd war.Beautiful text as a real masterpiece and  hot moving story
5/5 realy  a masterpiece

Doom
I already have seen the Dhoom an indian movie aoubt 6 years ago and expected something really similar to it.Iwas totayl dissapointed that this  movie was a fiction horror with  human[?] beasts and crazy scientists killing themselves an anatomic medicine.
1/5

Baby's day out!
Ludicrus  but very funny  movie for all family that made my daughter laugh a lot   . It  is rated  here .OUt of logic was the  fall of the  bad people from the building without breaking ...their bones !Too cartoony
3/5 for the story 1/5 that  ??the logc

Resident Evil /Affinity
Here are sure many parts of this story  and our national TV chanel has only this part. Nice story  with intersting plot  and stunning graphics except the  bit disgusting ?? out of vilains moth in the end of the movie. Also nice girls
4/5

Ultaviolet
Can a storng actio nstory tame wih literary like interanal dialogue ?Surely not. This movie starting  full of action get in itsialst 15 miutes wih rather  boring self talk for the move standards. Mila sond very good in this movie As  Vee a killing machine in tis movie  is nvloved wi  the chase of a boy adn then  feels  very  motherly  on the end ina ttaly Marvel standards scene and colour  background  . Dont thin that this movie is a cartoon . It si jst the??? .
Acton 4/5 full of cheesy language stll ethe last 15 minutes
3.5  for all story

The mechanic  . 4/5

Interesting slow motion movie  in the start  and rather faster motion afer the middle of the movie. It could be better called 'the  vengeance' as most of the 1/3 th shown the fight of Statham with this counterpart against his boss . The funniest part was the killing of a so called savior as the  final scene of his counter part trying to fight his boss but follows his trap.


Trapped 4/5 ( Charlize Theron )

Very interesting and shocking psych thriller story of a woman with a diseased child trapped into the hands of a man wanting a vengeance for the death of his child caused by Theron's husband who is doctor  . But he failed to  gt it after her  husband took the story into his hands  Theron shows very young in this movie not older than 25. 


Desperado

1) 'A rather bad movie using good actors as Banederas and Hayek into a full gun killing movie.  ' a mean level human critic
2) 'fun and enjoyful movie from the expert  of making B movies of spaghetti action' a Tatantula way thinking man.
Just select  the best response. 



The best offer

One of the best movies seems this period. rather difficult to describe my feelings after seeing , this made feel me rather shocked wit the end of the story . A young and seemingly rich woman who was living into a room for more than 15 years  suddenly after a  old man loved her transforms into a  deceiver who forget immediately her lover's love?
A  rather unusual female  robot advised  this man that this girl has left her house for more times than he  visited This point  is something that none could discuss   in the imdb  reviews listing.
Hitchcock type psych thriller 
4.5/5


The net 2.0

This story is clearly based in the Net of Sandra Bullock filmed abot 10+  years ago but is not a sequel. . Period. The new story is even more complex  than the original and requires you to watch from  the start or you will lose much of it . A mixture of  full action , suspense , psych thriller and a bit of matrix. Definitely worth if watching for  its action although it could sound quite overwhelming for other aspects including the rather computer illiterate IT  consultant using hotmail to read her emails and the sudden cut off of her money the time she was on the airplane . The IT goofs  to what the story is supposed downgrade it much.
Also did nt forget that it has been  filmed in Instabul the well known once capital of Byzantine  . It gives  aa excellent setting for the movie although it is underrated in favour of the story.
And  surely wait for sequel! 
plot : 7    action:10 setting : 10 goofs : many
3/5 It could be better if the director could care more on the  story situation and the ingredients involved


 

 

Connors war 

A thiller movie  with lot of action but no humor as  with Bruce Willis. and OK movie for late hours with some psychedelic effects .Coonor finds himself after  blinded in a clash against gangster team  that his boss was really a  traitor
3/5


Elephant white
A movi produced in my 'teritories' namely  Tailand , Wached it after the middle and lost important part and  understood that the scenario is rather complex so  i 'lost in the translation'from the part i have not wtched  .  A  macho negrito  involved in assasinations etc  has a ally who is also his  envy working for a gang of  human traffic and prostitution, ie  mainly  girls.  A 'ghost' helped him  to save these  girls ...
3/5

Unstoppable
Two drivers stop a  driverless train form its crazy route on the lines of USA afer  numerous unsucessful attempts from the management  to stop it . Based in a true story .
Excellent movie with very  fast pacing and very fast holo camera movements  . it surely can  cause epilepsy to some viewers.
4.5/5

Pompeii 
An excellent movie . A romance story mixed with the  end of Pompeii  under the burst of the nearby  volcano 4/5

 The fifth element

A ridiculously funny movie watched in a local  TV channel of our city. Bruce Willis  was a relatively funny actor but most of the paradise inhabitants were a bit of gay making the movie really ridiculous/ seems as  a parody and insult to Starwars
1.5/5
Fun: 5/5



Pope Joan: 

a huge  movie of atleast  2 hours palyed during the greek  Holy week in a  nationalwide TVchannel. I liked to see this movie as the story is quite provocative It is unknown  if this is a real story or just a fable as  VAtican  wants us to know. thogh story is very interesting the setting or the  filming was  rather bad ie noninsistent that made me rather indiferent.
Story 4.5 filming etc 2.5

Chocolat : 

nice to seethis movie though more than 10 years later . a greek series  is based in this movie . As with Pope Joan this story  seems also provocative. This woman has come into a very conservative village selling chocolats  the  time the poeple fastened for the Easter. The mayor is over conservative  to the level that he guided  the young priest for the preach. this si the only point that made me laugh. How can a  mayor  do this?
Very intereting  story , good actors , flat result
3/5  for this reason


Barbie  spy quad.  

One of the  latest movies Mattel  mainly aimed for  young  girls to merchandise their new dollies  .
Barbie now  has  a new look comparing to the lolder  movies such as face etc .
This is a  hilgh action movie  with more than  the real  acrobatics with  all the girsls sounding a bit of  superheroes,  . Also  lots of  CGI generated   high tech /futiristic  gadgets and  two  robot   pets.
I feel she is as  like a female Bruce Williams  or James Bondwith some  humor especially in the start of the movie .
The story seems not so original though  there is some predictable subversion  in the middle. The scenario is rather poor and has many holes. .
The moral  is nearly the same in all barbie's  movies : groups work better than individuals.
3/5

Spy kids 

Can someone deem this movie for kids though it has been produced  with kids?  for me not.unless  you set it to 15 and over . the puppies are disgusting so i hate them. As i have seen mr Very Beautyful(Mr Machette ) i can think this comes fromm the same insane producer /senariowriter as with Machete . it is very sad that Klooney  and Banderas played in this funny and idiot movie
1/5

Shaun  the sheep (series!)

It is one of the  funniest   children serie s with the nicest scenarios  that can be loved also by parents. Shaun is an very clever  sheep that likes  sometimes  to fix many  problems with his mates and sometimes cheat the rather stupid dog.I thin that still hte farmer is  more  stupid than Shaun.
A funny  , intelligent and subversive series . KUdos  to the British producers!
TYhe only  i dont know  is if this was pro0duced with  puppets or it is GCI
4/5

Garfield(series )

And another series with nice and clever stories as Shaun. I know  him more than 30 years ago . As with other series of ih s time  Garfield series  is made wirth CGI . Nothing other to notice except that i like his humorous  stories and the good CGI .
4/5





Machete:
Watching the older movie of Machete 1, the machete kills seems of having nearly the same plot. The story has the same style with the first i.e.  very excessive killings  and broken legs hands and the same  over and over again , giving a surely  disgusting result as the umbrella  watch , though this sequel is more fun . Apparently removing the disgusting umbrella the movie s quite fun. 
  • Verdict from serious level 2/5
  • Verdict from the fun level 3/5




Nicostratos 
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1891942/
The first of movies I have seen from the new start of ERT on 11.6.15  featuring Emil Kusturica in a small island of Greece featuring a pelican who made up himself a tourist attraction in this island,after  being resurrected in the hands of a young buy  .The movie is very nice with excellent  pictures and  landscapes adn with a nice plot. The only bad is that the production all actors are Franch and not Greek

Verdict 4/5

Barbie  the princess power  (15)

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4215332
This is possibly the last movie from the  Mattel company as for June 15 which was aired from the  nationwide  TV channel Star in greek language in two parts.  The movie was too funny in the fifst part  making us , me and my daughter  laugh a lot , but the second part aired the next day   was  more serious as it was the problem Barbie coped with  the bad guy of the story. Seems  quite 'naive' story
Verdict : 3/5 

Κριτικες ελληινικών ταινιών (συγκεντρωτικά)



Αχ  αυτή η γυναικα μου

 3.5/5

 

Οι γαμπροί της ευτυχίας  62 & 14 


Η ταινία αυτή  βασίζεται σε σενάριο του Τσιφόρου και είναι  μια ξεκαρδιστική κωμωδία  Έτυχε πρόσφατα να δω και τις δυο με διαφορά μιας μέρας με πρωταρχικό στόχο να κάνω συγκρίσεις  μεταξύ των δυο version και πραγματικά , και οι δυο δεν παίζονταν !
Η ιστορία και  στις δυο  περιπτώσεις  ήταν σχεδόν ίδια (σχεδόν όμοιο κείμενο ) με μερικές μικρές διαφορές μεταξύ τους :
Στην  καινούρια ταινία αναφέρεται  ένα μικρό background  πριν  την πρώτη γνωριμία . στην παλιότερη ταινία αναφέρονταν ότι τα χρήματα που κέρδιζε  η Ευτυχία (κάπου 200.000 σε έγγραφα δημοσίου  ) ήταν  για την ανιψιά της , στην καινούρια ταινία  τα χρήματα αναφέρονταν στην ιδία  και η οποία   σπατάλησε αρκετά . (από 2 εκ ευρώ  ) αγοραζοντας μέχρι και κότερο! Αφαιρώντας τα ευτράπελα της παραγωγής   

Anyway μια σύντομη κριτική για τους ηθοποιούς
  • Βασιλειάδου /Ρωπα  ¨ σχεδόν το ίδιο  (50/50 )
  • Ριζος /Ευρυπιωτης  45/55  (πιο σοβαρός από τον Ριζο )
  • Λάζου / Μαλφα 50/50
  • Αυλωνιτης / Αποστολάκης 70/30 (ο Αποστολακης μου φαίνεται πολύ άτσαλος )
  • Τσιτσοπουλος / Τσιμιτσελης 40/40 (και οι δυο παίζουν ένα άχαρο ρόλο )
Βαθμολογία  9 καις τις δυο περιπτώσεις





Το φιλί της ζωής  (2007)

Την ταινια την παρακολούθησα σε ένα τηλεοπτικό κανάλι .
Ταινία με εντυπωσιακά τοπία γυρισμένα στην Σίφνο και με μια ιστορία σχετικά απλή και με έναν απρόσμενο έρωτα  που άλλαξε την εξέλιξη μιας δολοφονίας

 Μια ελαφρώς δραματική ταινία μυστηρίου με αρκετά ευτράπελα και ένα σχετικά άτονο σασπένς παιγμένο με συγκινησιακά στοιχεία στο τέλος της ταινίας
τα ευτράπελα σε συνδυασμό με γνωστούς κωμικούς της σύγχρονης εποχής όπως Ζουγανέλης Μπουλάς και ένας πολύ cool  Θέμος

 Βαθμολογία 4/5










Πέμπτη και 12
Με τον Θανάση Τσαλταμπαση. Μια πολύ ευχάριστη ταινία  του κατά τα άλλα που συμπαθούς σε εμένα πρωταγωνιστή και σκηνοθέτη  Θανάση με μία πολύ ενδιαφέρουσα ελαφρώς μεταφυσική ιστορία με αρκετό χιούμορ χωρίς να είναι  κωμωδία Τουλάχιστον εγώ δεν την θεωρώ κωμωδία που σημαίνει για μένα πολύ γέλιο.  Κοντά στο πλαίσιο του παλιού  καλού κινηματογράφου και μια όντως αρκετά καλή παραγωγή
Όλοι παίζουν καλά εκτός  από  που τον Βλαδίμηρο Τον  θεωρώ πολύ βαρύ  για τον χαρακτήρα του σε αυτή την ταινία Όμως τα ανέκδοτα του Γαλιτη είναι πολύ χάλια. Ποιο χάλια δεν γίνεται
4.5/5







Σχολη για σοφερίνες 

Μια παλιά ελληνική ταινία με τον Βέγγο και άφθονο γέλιο . Παίχτηκε στο Σκάει  για την ημερα  του θανάτου  του Μπάρκουλη. μια ταινία γεμάτη ατάκες κυρίως από τον "αξιολάτρευτο  και απίθανο  Βέγγο. αυτά που με έκαναν μεγάλη εντύπωση ήταν  η αστεία  οδήγηση όταν ο βέγγος ανέβηκε αλλα χιώτικα  στους ωμους του  οδηγού ενός  μονοποδηλατου αλλα  και το πρωτότυπο   κλέψιμο του γαμπρού! Ο Ζανίνο έπαιζε  έναν πολύ κρύο ρολο (αν και πάντα  ήταν "κρύος" σε όσες ταινίες έπαιζε ) και οι τύψεις του Βέγγου που νόμιζε ότι τον σκότωσε, ήταν πολύ αστείες σε βαθμό απολυτου γέλωτος

Τελικά ποιος είναι ο τελυταίος άντρας ; Προφανώς  ο παραδοσιακός  ανατολίτης άντρας. Μια καυστική πλευρά  στρόι άκρατο φεμινισμό όπως και στον άκρατο ανατολίτη. Ένας Βουτσάς να τον κλέη οι... ρέγγες  !! που φτάνει μέχρι στα όρια του γελοίου. Μια απλοϊκή και επιφανειακή  ιστορία "περισοστερο" ga να γελάς όπως και οι περισσότερες της εποχής παρα να κανεις κριτική.
4/5

Ο μαγκούφης 

Μια χαρούμενη ιστορία με ευχάριστο σενάριο από τον πολύ παλιό καλο ελληνικό κινηματογράφο Σε μερικά σημεία στη αρχή  με θύμισε τον skroutz του dickens. Ο Φωτόπουλος στο ρολο του μαγκούφη αρνιόταν  να δεχτεί πρόταση  να παντρευτεί ώσπου μια όμορφη κοπέλα του έκανε 'κλικ' στην καρδια Όταν όμως έμαθε την συνωμοσία που έπαιξαν σε βάρος του τότε τα πήρε στο κρανίο αν και τελικά  η καρδια του έλεγε αλλα. Η Μάρθα Βούρτση  σε ένα ρολο όχι τόσο κοντά σε ρόλους που την έχουμε συνηθίσει.

4/5


Ο τρελός της πλατείας αγαμων 

Ο Γκιωνάκης σε μια ξεκαρδιστική κωμωδία με ένα λευκό γάμο που το τέλος  εξελίχτηκε σε ένα μαφιόζικο κόλπο του θείου του . Ο μπάρμπα Γιώργης και η Νέζερ σε έξυπνους ρόλους.

2/5


Tzoum "ταρατατζουμ" 

Μια κωμική ταινία του James Paris που θυμίζει αρκετά  την ιστορία  Ιππείς του Αριστοφάνη με αρκετά 'σύγχρονα στοιχεια (της εποχής του 80 και ίσως πιο πριν )  Πολλά  ευτράπελα που θυμίζουν μάλλον βέγγο να τρέχει και αριστερή φρασεολογία 3/5

Γύφτικη κομπανία με τον Ταμτάκο για μαϊμούδες. 

Παρόλο που η ώρα ήταν αρκετά περασμένη   (το είδα στο E,  είχαν περάσει μεσάνυκτα) παρέμεινα βλέποντας  την ταινία για να dew που θα καταλήγει και τίποτα περισσότερο .
Ο Ταμτάκος είναι ένας χαζών γύφτος και έχει ένα μεγάλο  ταλέντο  : την φωνή του. Ένας  μουσικός manager  τον προτείνει να τραγουδήσει. Ο Ταμτάκος   βρίσκει την παλιά του παρέα ηλιθίων και ξαναφτιάχνουνε το συγκρότημα και τραγουδάν τι άλλο σκυλάδικα (Ο Θεός  να τα κάνει τραγούδια δηλαδή)   , Το συγκρότημα σημειώνει τέτοια επιτυχία που τραγούδησε μέχρι και στο ....μέγαρο!!  (πολύ χοντροκομμένο το βρίσκω)
Τα  κείμενα  είναι χαλια όπως και οι μισοί να τους κανεις ηθοποιούς. Το plot κάπως ξεχωρίζει καθώς έχει μια ενδιαφέρουσα πλοκή. "αλκομη" και ο πιο σοβαρός  σε άλλες ταινίες του είδους  ο Μάρκος Λεζές  που ραζή τον ρολο του δικηγόρου είναι για σφαλιάρες και ο Λευτερης Μελέτης  είναι τα μαύρα μου τα χαλια - κάνει τον  καθυστερημένο αν και είναι λίγο πιο αίγειρος απότον Ταμτάκο ! . Ο Ρίζος παίζει με βάση το γνωστό του στυλ  ,  Ο  Γκιωνάκης   είναι χαλια.Η sexy Μαρία Κώνστα  η συμπρωταγωνίστρια είναι ο μονος σοβαρός ρόλος  της ταινίας . Η ερωτική ανταγωνίστρια της Μηνα Aντουλακη μοιάζει σαν άχαρο ...παγόβουνο   ).  1/5
