Review this movie
ChadS.Dec 3, 2006The Israeli/Palestinian couple in "Only Human" reminds me of Hannity(prom king) and Colmes(band geek). Leni(Marian Aguilera) is much better looking than her fiance, Rafi(Guillermo Toledo), which makes the film seem predisposed towards the Israelis(like how the FOX show is slanted towards the conservative side). Without meaning to, the filmmakers reveal their bias. An early scene, in which Rafi accidentally "kills" the patriarch, is going to be less funny if you think the filmmakers aren't apolitical. In a discussion about past fiances(presumably all Israelis), Tania(Maria Botto) tells Leni that she thinks Rafi is ugly. And Leni agrees. Aside from the film's political minefield, "Only Human" also suffers from editing incoherence.

JamesR.Dec 11, 2006Amusing, sometimes silly, the movie has a sweet heart. One of the best comedies I have seen this year.
MaseJul 23, 2006Darker spanish version of Meet the Parents. Wittier but without the bellylaughs. Only truely funny in whisps, the slapstick scenes fall shorter than it's american cousin. However there are some great characters here. I could watch actress Norma ALeandro as mama GLoria all day. She could teach STreisand a thing or two.
