Unlike the previous movie written by Boris Quercia, that is, "The King of A**holes", this one lacks depth and the humanity and charming sense of humor that watermarked his 2006 effort.
At the beginning, the film cuts right to the chase: In a third-world country with no space agency and almost no space experience, a Spanish language teacher is launched in a spacecraft - that lacks security measures and has little-to-none oxygen. He won the "honor" of being Chile's first astronaut... at a TV-show.
Also, the entire mission control crew departs at the first scene.
Is a great premise. But, instead of taking advantage of it, the movie revolves endlessly around the astronaut's girlfriend quest for the launching site. Sure some gags appear, but they're mostly a cavalcade of clichés. The USA counterpart of the Chilean mission control, instead of evolving into clever irony, is just campy at its best.
On and on, "Chile Puede" was a brilliant opportunity of making a really smart comedy, sadly lost into boring, old and worn-out gags.
