Great film.
18 February 2008 | by lmc0791See all my reviews

This is definitely one of the best Puertorican movies ever made. I love it so much, I've seen it twice on theaters. It shows the worst in love but you can't help but enjoy it. I'm sure only a Puertorican can truly love this film but it's a movie for everyone, so don't miss out on it. Besides I'm curious about what a non Puertorican has to say about it.

For those of you interested here is a link to the trailer(you'll have to copy/paste it):

This film does have English subtitles, unlike the man of a previous review, I know see has been removed, said.
