Loved the movie!
15 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed seeing this movie. It was funny very beautiful scenes of Puerto Rico. It was great to finally be able to relate to characters in a movie. Loved that is was bilingual or Spanglish as we call it. I recommend it! I would love to see more movies with positive Latinos actors. As a Latina born in the united states I was able to relate to what the main character went through when speaking Spanish in Puerto Rico. It was fun to watch. It made me laugh. It was good to see that finally more movies are being made of the Latino community. We need more roles like these that show us in a different light instead of just the prisoner, gang member etc.
