Hysterical, 21 May 2007
Author: dulzemorena from United States

This is one of the funniest movies I have seen in my life. Genaro is a poor but hard working man that dreams of coming to the USA in search of a better life. He learns some English words and temporarily works at Bavaro resorts in hopes of marrying a old white lady to bring him to the USA.

His personal journey to obtain a USA visa is selfish because he tries to use Martha but noble because who wants to be poor for the rest of their life. You get to discover the "real" Dominican Republic as three childhood friends wine, dine and mingle with three female American tourists.

The bootleg version of this movie is HOT so I can't wait to buy the official DVD.
