It's "West Side Story" gone bad!
15 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you are looking at this film to learn about Puerto Rican culture and ethnicity, you will not find it here. In fact, all this film offers is a Hollywood-stereotypical of Puerto-Rican-American generic. And, the generic is offered on the 'cheap', with a low-budget film that is anything but authentic. A cameo appearance by J-Lo (Jennifer Lopez), at the end of the film, does not legitimize the film. As for the music, it starts out okay at the start of the film, but then goes from bad to worse. The dancing is okay, but disappears by the end of the film. A song entitled 'Puerto Rico', which (I guess) was sung at a Puerto Rican festival in New York City, feels more like a commercial than a movie. But, the film fails to promote anything but garbage.

There does not seem to even be a plot--and, as someone has suggested, I would not even bother to write what may be a plot (quoting the suggestion) "on an envelope." It would be a waste of an envelope that can be better-used elsewhere. If there is a script, it certainly must be brief and threadbare. Did anyone ever both to do any research, at all, on Puerto Ricans? If so, the research findings do not find their way in this film. In fact, this film appears to be a poor remake of "West Side Story" gone bad (the Jets and the Sharks even get lost).

The film is more like a nightmare on Upper-West-Side's Main Street. And, the script is filled with a Caucasian's misconception of what the writer blindly sees as a Puerto Rican Yellow Brick Road. The script needs lots, and lots, and lots of work. And, the actors and dancers are like a "Peter Pan" that just does not know how to fly. Also, the film's creators need to re-write a more-believable, if not more-authentic, workable kind of formula.

Do not even listen to, or watch, the dialog or music from the film. Or, at least take two aspirin, after you get a migraine headache. Do your homework, or go to Puerto Rico, to learn about what it really is to be a Puerto Rican. All you will get, from the film, is plenty of chaos, confusion, noise, and static.

The film is so awful that it deserves a zero, but the lowest rank is 1 out of 10. Due to 'extreme awfulness', the film is not recommended. Keep the adults--and the children--home.
