Following the death of her philandering husband Carlos in an automobile accident, Luci and her sisters Graci and Mari decide to go to a seaside resort to have some badly needed fun. Their riotous, romantic summer is recounted by Luci's 15-year-old son Domingo. Before the accident, his mother and her siblings were popular comediennes known as the Three Graces. While at Benidorm, the resort, Luci is periodically haunted by the specter of Carlos who by and by lets her know that he was with 34 women during their marriage. Knowing that, she doesn't feel so guilty about becoming involved with the shy and handsome Italian Salvatore, whom Domingo suspects is responsible for the accident that killed his father. While the youth wrestles with those issues, his aunts are busily involved with their new lovers. The ever-insecure aspiring actress Graci gets involved with Victor, a delivery man moonlighting as a thief. The brassy, blonde Mari gets involved with the oily Claudio, an adulterous married man who nearly has a breakdown when he discovers that his wife has been unfaithful too. ~ Sandra Brennan, All Movie Guide

A Really Fine Piece of Fluff by talltale April 24, 2005 - 2:31 PM PDT

This nearly decade-old movie featuring some of Spain's most popular performers is such a bubbly delight that I am tempted to call it irresistible (though I do realize that each of us can resist certain genres more easily than others). If you enjoy offbeat romantic comedy, however, it's hard to image that WHAT MAKES WOMEN LAUGH? won't make you laugh, smile, chuckle and guffaw, all the while marveling at the talent and imagination that's gone into this little charmer of a film. A romantic comedy about an extended family, it centers on three sisters/performers and their "love" troubles.

Everything's here: four generations, birth and death, a ghost and even sex in twos, three and fours. Some of this is silly, but the filmmakers have told us just enough about these people to make the silliness almost believable and lots of fun. Veronica Forque, Candela Pena, Adriana Ozores, Jordi Bosch, Jorge Sanz and many more are on hand, and director Joaquin Oristrell (who's gone on to helm and write another landmark rom-com "No Shame") was clearly warming up with this early bit of fluff. The final photos (not just off the cast but the crew, too) are lovely: a perfect and perfectly gracious way to end a film that I hope will leave you--what's the word?--as "giddy" with good feelings as it left me.
