'Jamón' equals ham; 'una mulier jamóna' equals hot Hispanic babe. Put them together and you've got this mix of reprehensible depravity and tease of social significance. As it tells of the desire of a pregnant woman for the bulgingly becrotched Manuel (with weightly subplots involving various mums), you can't help feeling it's aiming at too many targets. Sexy, leering and exploitative, but not necessarily a fine film.
