Following on the heels of its popular 1983 precursor, this second installment of "El Milusos" continues the Sad Sack character of the widowed Transito (Hector Suarez) and his losing misadventures in the low-end job market. "El Milusos" is Transito's nickname, meaning a "Jack-of-all-trades" because he tries his hand at anything to get ahead. He leaves his young son and his farm behind him to seek his fortune in a large, run-down barrio of Mexico City where he does everything from selling tacos, to waiting tables, to boxing, and he even tries a stint as an illegal alien in the U.S. His karma is such that he misses out on the breaks that happen to others, yet he does so with a comic style and innocence that can be admired. Although the storyline is uneven and not above lecturing at times, the misadventures of Transito are laced with a steady dose of humor that should entertain most audiences.
