Movie Info

Jacob van Oppen, a washed-up alcoholic who was the former strongest man on earth, and his crafty manager Orsini, make a good living by traveling around small South American towns, organizing wrestling exhibitions in run-down theaters. Once this oddball pair disembarks at the village of Santa Maria, business really kicks off: the local newspaper sponsors the fight, and helping hands placard posters announcing an open call for a worthy adversary. Ever so resourceful, Orsini has always known how to find the right combatant that will invariably lose against Jacob, but fishing in Santa Maria could lead to a bigger catch than he'd hoped for. --© Film Movement

The film is a lopsided work that never truly keeps its focus.

Audience Reviews for Bad Day to Go Fishing (Mal dia para pescar)

Quite a good movie with a solid performance from Gary Piquer. It's got a great soundtrack and great cinematography and some funny moments but the movie lacks focus. I'm not sure what the movie wanted to do half the time, even if I did enjoy it, and I don't think they milk the relationship between Jacob and Prince as much as they could. But it's a well made movie, not particularly memorable in any way but definitely good.

Good, not great, take on attempting to hustle the rubes when you're well beyond your glory days and things just don't go as smoothly as they ought.
