PlotEdit

Raúl (Mauricio Ochmann), Eduardo (Humberto Busto) and Santiago (Alfonso Dosal) have led a happy and "masculine" life from their childhood, until, one day, Santiago confesses to them that he is gay. Raúl, the homophobic god, will try to convince his friend that his is nothing more than a simple sexual confusion, until, when the situation becomes unsustainable, Raúl will leave aside his prejudices and decide to help Santiago to venture into their new life.

CriticismEdit

GLAAD criticized the film as especially homophobic in its 2018 report "Studio Responsibility Index"[6] stating: "Overall, this movie contained so much anti-gay language and sentiment played for laughs, that Raúl coming around is barely consequential. While this film did pass the Vito Russo Test by including an LGBTQ character who was significant to the plot and had the same sort of unique personality traits as non-LGBTQ characters, it does not stop the film from being incredibly offensive."
