Rigth now, just the best movie ever made at DR.
26 November 2008 | by h-bournigalSee all my reviews

I must say this is the BEST movie made in Dominican Republic.

Some things got out of the director's hands but... its OK, its just a mirror of what will happened to you if u live here in DR.

Difference with and without money!

I recommend everyone to see this movie... more yet if u re Dominican!!

WHY?:

1) Its not like others that just want to put the same comedy from TV to the Movies.

2) Shows our own reality!!

3) Have everything!! comedy, romance, action, corruption "money talks"

4) Just buy it!!! and post your comment!! ;P
