Trivia

In a scene in the Dominican Republic, a dog appears next to Balbuena and Fellito. This was a trained dog that was supposed to host the soul of Balbuena's dead wife (and act and show emotions accordingly). But the day of the filming, the dog didn't feel like acting and just lay down. The efforts to make the dog perform were useless, so its role had to be left out of the script. See more »

Hilarious and real!!!!!!!
12 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is just so Dominican. I love it!!! this film made me remember my roots and the spicy sense of humor of the Caribbean people. Balbuena, the main character, belongs to Dominican Republlic folklore. He reflects the eternal fight for reach "USland" thinking that in this soil everybody could be "rich", and then, go back wrapping with dollars. Many years before of the birth of this movie, Luisito Martí as Balbuena, was looking for his dreams in several local TV shows in his country. At the end of every sketch something happened and he couldn't reach New York... Nueva Yol. It so important to notice that for Dominican people New York is la like the Mecca!!!
