Trivia

Director Darnell Martin had a major falling out with her film studio Columbia as she objected to the title change, the fact that they marketed her film as a romantic comedy in the vein of "Four Weddings and a Funeral" and that they referred to her in their publicity as an Afro-American female director. Although Martin technically fits that description, she took exception to the fact that the studio was using her ethnicity as a tool to sell tickets. See more »

Great movie!
12 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I love watching this movie! It portrays Latino life & culture to the tee, also showing relationships regardless of race, everyone can relate ( if you've been in a bad one), just saw it on cine max last night, 1st time in 10 years & it hasn't lost it's spunk. Chino & Lissette play extraordinary parts & not too mention Jesse Borrega's performance as a transvestite ! WHOA!!!!!! Also liked the fact that it portrays Latino's as everyday people, although they're are the typical stereotypes associated with it like, drug dealing,stealing,gambling,& having extramarital affairs,aside from that ,good portrayal. I definitely recommend this film for any body that has been in love or just wanna laugh your butt off
