In a battle of the sexes one will win......maybe
1 March 2014 | by See all my reviews

The film "Quien Manda" or "who's the boss" is a sweet and fresh change in Dominican Filmography, is a romantic comedy about two Casanovas, Alex and Natalie, that considers themselves experts and leaders in love relationships, so when a Don Juan meets a Mata-Hari you can expect some explosive situations.

The movie travels around of what becomes for this couple and their relationship to make it work. But when two sharp knives collide, something happens, and a battle of wills ensues.

This is a very popular film in the Dominican Republic, that I think makes his job, giving the public two popular actors-celebrities in his stars Frank Perozo and Nashla Bogaert and both of them gives a fresh and natural performances, making us to approach the film as a nice change in the usual boring and awful Dominican comedy films we have before.

For moments the movie is really funny and smart. not without flaws.

Some jokes are too local to digest for the international public but in general the story works fine. The climax it's a little bit of a cliché, but in general the project works and in the end you have perhaps one of the few Dominican movies that makes you stay in the theater.

Good effort keep the good work.
