      Marc Savlov Austin Chronicle Rated: 2.5/5 Jul 5, 2005 Full Review Boston Globe Rated: 3/4 Jun 25, 2005 Full Review Michael Booth Denver Post As a first feature-length effort for Berger, Torremolinos 73 shows promise of a director with a humane touch, with or without the extra skin. Rated: 3/4 Jun 24, 2005 Full Review Paul Dale The List A polyester and bri-nylon must for fans of art house and pornography alike. Yeah, like there's a difference. Rated: 4/5 Apr 24, 2019 Full Review Kam Williams Upstage Magazine A bawdy sitcom which careens back and forth between the ridiculous and the sublime. Rated: 4/4 May 31, 2007 Full Review Lewis Beale Film Journal International The film ranges from wacky and hilarious to downright romantic, yet Berger manages to shift tone smoothly and expertly. He's aided by top performances from his leads. Mar 1, 2007 Full Review Read all reviews

      R 9 How salacious! I didn't hold any expectations for 'Torremolinos 73', but I wouldn't have predicted that. I did enjoy it though, it is the type of plot that I feel like I've seen done before but it has enough differences that it stands on its own feet. I'd note it as a film totally worth watching, if you're open to seeing plenty of nudity of course - though, to be fair, it becomes less about that as it goes on. Candela Peña and Javier Cámara give two good performances, they bounced off each other well (...pardon the pun...) and held solid chemistry. Cámara is the more comedic of them, he made me chuckle a few times. The rest of the cast aren't all that (relatively) important, with Mads Mikkelsen limited to a rather small role. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 10/03/23 Full Review Audience Member La cutres hecha película. No entiendo como tiene tan buena puntuación, la vi en una lista de "comedias" y es que no te hace ni llorar (ni de la risa, ni de lo mala que es). Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Audience Member Buen debut de Berger, comedia española casposa. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/15/23 Full Review Audience Member Bien resuelta tras las camaras es una ópera prima bien planteada y llena de recuerdos interesantes. No obstante concluye con poco appeal. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Audience Member Despite its subject, a quaint, funny movie. First half is very funny, but the movie loses its way from then on. Ends feeling like a bit of damp squib. Decent performances all round. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member It was ok, Zack and Miri was better.
