Originally released in 1995, Las Nueve Vidas De Paco is part of Girl's Box Set 1993-99 which consists of 4 videos.

I guess the whole "Pancho Villa" approach to this flick didn't really work for me. There's a lot of good skating, but this disc as a whole just didn't stoke me the way other Girl / Chocolate titles have. They didn't really create a compelling theme for this one. Going with one complete theme as an ongoing break between skate parts is a cool idea, but it didn't hold my interest. And it didn't have the trademark cleverness of most of their skits.

The skating starts with Mike York and flows to other rider parts. Mulder and Randle both had very short parts. Gabriel Rodriguez had the final part to close out Las Nueve Vidas De Paco. Apparently no one really gave a damn about poor old Paco. Such is life...

Mouse and Goldfish really sell the Girl Boxset. This flick seems more like bonus footy from the better ones. Was that too harsh? I'm not in a great mood today (I know... "as if you care").
