Storyline

Emilio is a normal teenager who somehow finds himself being sent to the principal's office every other week. He has a crush on Jacklynne, the most popular girl in school, so he decides to run for Student Council President in order to impress her. After announcing his candidacy, Emilio discovers, to his horror, that Jacklynne herself will be running for office against him. Emotions fly high as campaign fever intensifies. Not wanting to lose his chance to win her heart, Emilio devises a risky plan that could come to a disastrous end if the tyrannous school principal gets wind of his scheme. Written by Anonymous

Excellent Film
28 June 2008 | by rpmoralesSee all my reviews

This movie was a fascinating look at modern day life in a Puerto Rican high school. It is funny and witty with great young performers who carry the movie brilliantly from scene to scene. It is a great family movie that all members can enjoy yet the message to young people about love and the loyalty of good friends is well presented without falling into a moralistic trap.

Too bad Puerto Rico doesn't produce more gems such as these. If it did Puerto Rico would be a world leader in film production for markets in the US, Latin America and Europe. Once this sleeping giant awakens look out!!!
