Reception

The presence of hippies in the film and Cantinflas's character clashing with them was seen by Professor Jeffrey M. Pilcher in Cantinflas and the Chaos of Mexican Modernity as "part of a struggle to represent Mexico's national identity," with Cantinflas's character representing the "pelado from the 1930s." Pilcher noted, however, that "although Cantinflas triumphed over the hippies on screen, many young people considered him a momiza (square)."[2] Both Carlos Monsiváis in Los ídolos a nado and Joanne Hershfield and David R. Maciel in Mexico's Cinema: A Century of Film and Filmmakers considered it among Cantinflas's most "sad and pathetic" films, alongside El ministro y yo (1976).[3][4]
