Hilarious
11 September 2006 | by (Gainesville, FL) – See all my reviews

Coming from a Cuban family and having lived in Miami for most of my life, this movie really takes me back to home and family gatherings. The way they speak is exactly the way most Cubans speak... Truly a funny film. It was not, however, shot in Cuba because, of course, that isn't possible (not a film like this, that often pokes fun at the gov't and politics- like Papito's communist father). It was actually shot in Spain (which probably explains why the film takes place primarily there and any shots in "Cuba" are rarely on location). Overall, a recommended film to watch for Cubans and non-Cubans alike- though I would refrain from watching it with my parents due to some explicit content that might make it a little uncomfortable.
