Funny movie but needs better English subtitles
8 May 2004 | by See all my reviews

It is a very funny movie. However, for non-Spanish speaking people, it would be hard to understand the meaning of the movie, because the translation (caption/subtitles) is not near as good as it should be.. It needs a better translation in English, non-Spanish speakers would be able to laugh at the jokes as Hispanics would. What the actors were saying was not the same interpretation written in the subtitles but I recommend to non-Spanish speaker to go with someone that does speak the language, He/She might help you to understand the joke. I'm glad that this movie has been released in new york city , but it has not been "advertise" as it should be. I saw "NuebaYol" 10 years ago and it was not as funny as this one.
