delightful easygoing fun
5 November 2005 | by morrisoundSee all my reviews

This movie was on Showtime today, and I was surprised at how good it was--I'd never heard of it. A. Martinez is just hilarious playing the, shall we say, "delusional" commandante. Esai Morales is a great comedy villain, and the young romance is gentle and sweet.

Like "The Fantasticks," there's an innocence to the goings-on, and when the Commandante's daughter finally sees the poor side of her island, her eyes are opened. Gives the film a lovely Capra-esquire quality, when the classes bump against each other in a great comedic clash.

It won't bump the greatest movies of all time off the list, but it's a lighthearted romp with a lot of heart and uplift, a real find.
