Unsuccessful attempt to picture latins in New York
17 March 2003 | by (mexico city) – See all my reviews

The theme of this movie could be interesting because I don't think there are a lot of light comedies using the scenario of the latin people living in New York. The story could be potentially funny, but in this case they try it too hard and simply don't make it happen. The acting doesn't help either, Thalia is just awful trying to portray a puertorrican from the Bronx, when she barely knows how to speak English(the accent and slang are so fake). I think it could have MAYBE worked better if they had cast someone like J. Lopez or any other latin actress.
