A lively second feature from Basque writer-directors Eneko Olasagasti and Carlos Zabala, “Yes, I Do” makes for an enjoyable hour and a half bordering on the mindless. Pic suffers from not straying far enough from the comedy rule book but pleases more than it palls. Its limited ambitions, however, are unlikely to create much offshore interest.

Bank clerk Jon (Joseba Apaolaza), affected by meeting ex-g.f. Carmen (Marta Belaustegui), leaves his bride — daughter of the bank’s prexy — at the altar. Just after he’s fired, the bank is robbed by Candela (Cayetana Guillen Cuervo, from Oscar-nommed “The Grandfather”) and b.f. Javier (Isidoro Fernandez). Jon, penniless and out of work, calls Javier and asks for a loan of “fifty”; Candela, who thinks he’s seen them robbing the bank, assumes he means millions rather than thousands and that it’s a blackmail attempt. Perfs are fine , especially from the charismatic Guillen Cuervo, who’s sympathetic and unpleasant at the same time. Apaolaza brings plenty of frenzy but little charm to the hapless hero. Both score and lensing are colorful and ’60s-inspired, right down to the cheesy opening and closing bird’s-eye shots of San Sebastian.
