The movie "E aí... Comeu?" can be classified as a romantic comedy, however, it tells the story of its three main characters through the male point of view, their love misadventures and their relationship with the city. The movie title comes from a rather chauvinistic expression that friends use to confirm if the one being questioned has achieve his "romantic goal".
In addition to the headlining trio and their love interests, the movie has two other important characters in supporting roles: the "bar" and the city of Rio de Janeiro.
The "Bar" (a.k.a. "boteco" or "botequim") is to Brazilians as the "Pubs" are to the anglo-saxons or the "Quioscos" to the Argentines. It is where friends and strangers meet to chat, celebrate and complain about life, soccer and love... The fictitious "Bar Harmonia" is a good representation of these iconic establishments that can be found all over the city of Rio de Janeiro. As it could not be any different, the tradicional "garçom de bar" (bartender) is present, represented with grace by the actor and musician Seu Jorge (from The Life Aquatic, City of God).
The city of Rio de Janeiro appears in a different light. Usually photographed through great shots of its mountains, beaches and lush vegetation, in "E aí... Comeu?" the city is also shown through the view of their middle class residents. In the movie you will experience the city as a resident; enjoying the city, its neighborhoods, streets and avenues as a carioca.
Get to know Rio de Janeiro a little deeper and have fun with the romantic misadventures of "E aí... Comeu?".

Together they debate what is their role in the women's world (translated from Adorocinema).
