Storyline

In Dominican Republic, the local Genaro works in a small family store and lives with his mother in a poor neighborhood. He is learning a couple of words in English and dreams on being a sanky-panky to get married to an American tourist to move to New York with a VISA and have a better life. He calls his friend Giussepe, who is the manager of a resort in Bávaro, and applies for a job position entertaining children but expecting to find a wealthy tourist. Genaro meets the gorgeous Martha, who has come from New Jersey with her fat aunts Dorothy and Helen, to forget her fiancé after calling off her wedding. Genaro calls his best friends, the womanizer Chelo and the gluttonous Carlitos, to date the aunts and live him alone with Martha. Martha only speak English and Genaro just know a couple of words in English, but everything works out the way he had schemed until the day Martha's boyfriend comes to the resort. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

I'd like to say I enjoyed this film...but I'd be lying.
1 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The characters have no depth. The storyline is contrived. The acting is amateur at best and filled with a real disregard for the humanity of Domincans. This film goes a long way towards perpetuating negative stereotypes. Genaro, the main character, is a candy store attendant with a burning desire to meet a rich American tourist that he can seduce and escape his economic situation. The folklore amongst his not too bright friends is that this is a guaranteed ticket to the good life. He envisions lounging in his own personal penthouse while simultaneously dealing with his dire circumstances. He lands a job as a gofer in a hotel resort to make his dreams come true only to find himself parading in a chicken suit to please the guests while pretending to be the hotel manager. His attempts to seduce fall flat just as the humor in this films does. Not a good film at all.
