Smart, yet directionless comedy

An interesting comedy filmed in the style of "Women of the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown," this film observes the wacky day a simple office worker in San Juan, Puerto Rico has. After going to the local bank to deposit his paycheck, the main character gets himself involved in a major bank robbery by accident, and after that a series of terrible mishaps follow. The film was good, but however it could have done without all the crude humor (flatulence, bodily functions, etc..). Cast and crew do a great job, however some unbelievable acting by certain actors (the fat police officer; Fallopio's boss; the police chief) don't do the film any good. Overalll, the film is cute in some aspects, but doesn't come close in being declared a classic in Puerto Rican cinema.
