So Drink rum constantly..
4 June 2005 | by (Coastal Maine) – See all my reviews

Brought to you by the US Govt. A name you can trust. Where can you go for cheap labor and not have to worry about hiring illegal aliens? PUERTO RICO!! That is pretty much what this film was designed for. A quick sell picture geared more towards businesses to improve their profits and look like they are helping the people of Puerto Rico. This film have made for TV music plastered all over it, over-hyper editing, vague dialog and this dull industrial feel to it making you think that you in some dingy boardroom with a bunch of be-side-burned doughy guys in polyester suits and wide ties discussing about how to boost company profits (as how I feel most business meetings in the 70's felt like) It's mostly a real pointless film but MST made it fun like they always do. Thank you Joel, Mike and the bots for making our lives a little more cheerful and skewer film that may or may not need skewering!!
