Storyline

Rico Suave (Vhong Navarro) is the ultimate ladies' man. In the bayside market where he works, he is constantly grilled by his four quirky friends (collectively known as the F-Poor) for "Suave" tips. Soon they find out that Rico has a problem: when he gets intimate with a girl, his entire body freezes. Rico is miserable. In an effort to help their friend, the F-Poor enlist the services of Venus Marte (Angelica Jones), a sexy con artist. Convinced that Rico is a potential goldmine to exploit, Venus agrees to take on the job. Sparks fly as Venus tries to snare Rico. But, when she finds herself genuinely falling for him, she is caught in a dilemma. Will there be a way out of this rut for Venus? Can Rico regain his old charm as Mr. Suave? Written by wikipedia

Brilliant!
24 October 2005 | by Turtle5729See all my reviews

This movie I saw at Otakon 2005 (anime convention), and it made my going there all the worthwhile. Vhong Navarro totally worked it in this movie, and he is seriously magnificent when it comes to physical comedy.

This movie has slapstick, some parts mildly gross out humor, romance, shrimp selling, and overall it will make you laugh like you wouldn't believe. I highly suggest this movie.

And, for those of you that don't like reading subtitles, you should still see it - that's how funny it is. The fact it was filmed in another country doesn't effect the movie at all, as the culture didn't play a really big part in the story, just the main character's "ordeal."
