Soooo, this is awkward.
Remember at the end of the Dope episode when we implied that our next movie would suck? Well, foot meets mouth as we talk the Spanish-language Mexican punfeast Un Gallo Con Muchos Huevos (aka “Huevos: Little Rooster’s Egg-cellent Adventure” aka “We’re gonna bastardize the english dub for the American market”). This fearless PG-13 children’s feature about cockfighting– oh, sorry.. Rooster Boxing is a very unique entry into the world of computer animated films. We talk culture differences, covert marketing strategies, and ultimately what lesson hollywood should take from this film.
We stress: should you seek this film out, WATCH THE SPANISH SUBBED VERSION. The English dubbed version is a different cut as well as a MUCH different film, devoid of the charm. Both versions can be found on the same DVD.
