Invitation to the Dance Blog-a-thon: Mesa que Mas Aplauda
Rene Cardona III - 2006
Laguna Productions Region 1 DVD
I'm combining Marilyn Ferdinand's blog-a-thon with Cinco de Mayo today. This is a major holiday not just in my town, but especially in my neighborhood. Mesa que Mas Aplauda is about a small town restaurant without customers, that becomes an overnight success when Las Vegas showgirl Liz Vega shows up to introduce pole dancing. Rene Cardona III's film is closer to a Mexican version of Coyote Ugly than Showgirls, with fewer pretenses. The film was inspired by the Latin hit song recorded by Osskar Lobo y Grupo Climax, performed at the end of the film. Mostly Mesa que Mas Aplauda is an excuse to have close ups of jiggly parts of the voluptuous cast. Viva La Vega!

OMG! That woman in the 4th screen cap better not let go of that pole, or she'll topple over!
Seriously, this movie looks like a lot of fun, and I'm glad you brought it to our attention.
Enjoy Cinco de Mayo, Peter!
