underrated and marvelous low budget film!
1 September 2004 | by (Seattle) – See all my reviews

This film is one of the funniest I have ever seen! If you like classic

Woody Allen, you will thoroughly enjoy Luis Cabellero's funny, off

the cuff, tongue in cheek, deadpan, brilliant narration as we get to

know him as a "little brown man." This politically incorrect film

knocks every stereotype out there about Latinos (specifically

Puerto Ricans). John Leguizamo is also fabulous in the many

sketches in the movie. (He is billed as Johnny Leggs.)

We all should watch this film in this day and age. It really reminds

us of the crazinees and futility of stereotypes in contemporary

society.
