Helena Bonham Carter,
Hard-drinking journalist Paul Kemp takes a job at a besieged newspaper in San Juan, Puerto Rico. His volatile editor, Lotterman, assigns him to tourist pieces and horoscopes, but promises more. Paul rooms with Sala, an aging and equally alcoholic reporter, in a rundown flat. Sanderson, a wealthy entrepreneur, hires Paul to flack for a group of investors who plan to buy an island near the capital and build a resort. Sanderson's girl-friend, the beguiling Chenault, bats her eyes at Paul. His loyalties face challenges when he and Sala get in trouble with locals, when a Carnival dance enrages Sanderson, and when the paper hits the skids. Is the solution always alcohol? Written by
The flags in Sanderson's boat when they go to the carnival, indicate the words: STTHOMTP at port side, and CARNIVAL at starboard, by international maritime signal flags code. See more »

How could anyone give these people money to make a film ? What a poor excuse for a bunch of morons to waste some footage. This is really rock-bottom movie-making, amateurish, trashy and offensive, degrading in the way it treats women, really ugly in the worst sense, without any redeeming features. Compared to this, The Adventures of Tintin is a masterpiece among
movies. This has just a sorry excuse for a plot, no direction, no actors trying to act, it's just total rubbish. Seeing this is really such a painful experience I even shiver at remembering it... It seems unexplainable to me that any producer would hand over some cash to a bunch of idiots like this in order to have them put together such an awful mess. Avoid it and you'll thank yourself for it.
