Movie about the relationship of two brothers that work in a banana plantation in Mexico. By chance they are discovered by a football scout and they go to live in the capital where they start to play for two different teams. Both personalities clash and rivalry surfaces despite coming from the same background. Beto is an irritable married man, a gambler, a rough goalkeeper full of anger that gains him the alias of "Rudo" (rough). Tato is single, a striker that dreams of becoming a famous singer, his alias is Cursi (Corny). As Beto gets deeper and deeper into gambling debts and drugs, Tato loses his football "mojo" when he starts dating a famous model known for her many boyfriends. Their paths criss cross constantly but their destinies are to be resolved in an important football match at the end of the movie.
This is an original comedy, full of contrasts and sparkly dialogues. These men stories are well interwoven and they are funny but without losing likeliness. There is a certain degree of tragedy here of doomed fate if you want (compulsive gambling, infidelity, debt, drug trafficking...), but it is dealt with such a matter of fact approach that seems perfectly natural and ordinary. It seems that the film is giving us a good dose of realism but cleverly mixed with twisted situations and hilarious scenes. In a way this is a humorous portrait of the Mexican poor.
