Storyline

Emilio is a normal teenager who somehow finds himself being sent to the principal's office every other week. He has a crush on Jacklynne, the most popular girl in school, so he decides to run for Student Council President in order to impress her. After announcing his candidacy, Emilio discovers, to his horror, that Jacklynne herself will be running for office against him. Emotions fly high as campaign fever intensifies. Not wanting to lose his chance to win her heart, Emilio devises a risky plan that could come to a disastrous end if the tyrannous school principal gets wind of his scheme. Written by Anonymous

simple.....
10 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Very refreshing. Ms. Irene Lucio as Maria Eugenia and her eye and facial expressions remind me of the great Charlie Chaplin, not too many people have that ability to make you laugh by just looking at their expressions. Emilo's character, dorky looking is the typical nice guy predestined to fail, nice guys always end up last, but he perseveres in his pursuit to catch the attention of the girl he likes and believes to be in love overlooking the fact that love has always been so close to him that he couldn't see it. The movie gives you a good lesson on friendship and teamwork. The movie is very good, different, simple yet comical. The linguistic expressions for those knowing "pouertorrican" Spanish are accurate. Situation presented can be a reflection of real life at a private school in Puerto Rico. What makes this movie so appealing is its simplicity I loved it, can't have enough of it.
