Straining credibility WAY beyond the breaking point.
20 December 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The plot for "The Man With My Face" is 100% ridiculous--there's no better way to describe it. It's so ridiculous, you'll probably have a hard time suspending disbelief in order to enjoy the film. It's mildly enjoyable...but stupid.

The setting for the film is very unusual--Puerto Rico. I can't recall another film set there other than "Mr. Moto in Danger Island" and for some odd reason the island hasn't been used as a setting very often. Barry Nelson plays two roles. One is a cold-blooded crook who has stolen a HUGE amount of money in a robbery in Miami. The other is married and has a business partner. Unfortunately, this nice Barry Nelson doesn't realize that the wife and 'friend' are working with the crook--and are more than happy to let the evil Barry assume the nice Barry's life. And so, when nice Barry returns home, the wife throws him out and calls the police--saying evil Barry is her husband. The setup is pretty complete and they are able to convince everyone amazingly quickly that the phony Barry is the real McCoy. This doesn't make sense for two reasons. First, you do NOT have 100% exact duplicates out there--not completely like you in every freaking way. Second, you'd think the police would take BOTH men in to headquarters and take better efforts to ascertain the truth. It just doesn't make any sense. For the rest of the film, nice Barry runs about trying to get help from friends and family as well as tracking down people who know the evil Barry. The film does have some snappy dialog--as well as a ridiculous doggy that seems A LOT smarter than nice Barry! Is the film worth seeing? Well, if you are crazy like me and watch a bazillion films a year, sure....you could do a lot worse. It is oddly watchable despite the silly plot and flat acting. But for the average person, this is an imminently forgettable and VERY flawed film--one that just isn't worth your time unless you are a family member of Barry Nelson or if you are a Puerto Rican living in the continental US and want to see a glimpse of home.

By the way, although the film was made in Puerto Rico, it was VERY odd--as NO ONE seemed to speak Spanish and the accents were minimal. I've spent time in Puerto Rico and I sure would have loved it if everyone spoke English and had very slight accents--but instead, I mostly had to speak Spanish (very poorly) because fluency in English is not all that common in this part of the United States.
