Two wild-living sex workers have to disguise themselves as pillars of the community for the sake of their families in this outrageous comedy from Spain. Gloria (Veronica Forque) is an exotic dancer, who, to her initial dismay, is given a new performing partner at the club where she works -- Manu (Jorge Sanz), a handsome young man, who, unfortunately, has precious little dancing experience. Manu comes from a prominent and respectable family, but thinks dancing would be fun, and a simple way to make some money. Despite a rocky start, Gloria and Manu get to be good friends, and he responds well when she shows him the ropes of their new routines. Eventually, Gloria and Manu end up sharing a flat, but when Manu's parents announce they're going to pay a visit, he and Gloria have to transform themselves from a pair of libertines into a normal middle-class couple practically overnight. ~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide
