If you are a Dominican, specially if you are a Dominican living abroad, this movies will seem like going back to your beloved motherland.
17 July 2011 | by (Michigan, USA) – See all my reviews

When you watch this movie: its cast, acting, story line, and you think you are going to watch something equivalent or competing with even a B-Hollywood style movie, you will be disappointed.

However, if you are a Dominican, specially if you are a Dominican living abroad, this movie will seem like going back to your beloved motherland. And yes, though the acting and the story line are suspect at best, for us Dominicans, this comedy hits home. It makes you laugh and it makes you cry... it makes you be... well, a Dominican! Our customs, our values, our priorities, our crazy families, the "barrio", the "tigueres", the "motoristas", the girls with amazingly large "behinds", the Bachata, Merengue, our food... and so forth. It is all what makes Dominican Republic, Dominican Republic! Any suggestions made to the producers regarding improving the acting and the story line, should be seriously considered. There was a lot that could have been made different in this movie. Yet again, if you live the lives these two guys were living in, all this seems, well... "naturally Dominican" to you.

So, for Dominican filmmaking, which is an endeavour that is still a work in progress, LotoMan gets a 7 for effort!
