Not bad at all! I gave it 6 Stars for originality!
20 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

I appreciated the 'Latino' flair, different for the holidays. The story line is touching and you'll know why at the end. This movie gave me a decent feel of what I might expect if I wanted to some day join a Puerto Rican family for the rest of my 'Gringo' life. I thought being with Puerto Rican lady would be kind of neat, so I watched the movie and now I understand more how it may be for me with that family. Debra Messing plays the 'Gringo', which would be me in this case as I join my future family in all its splendor and mysteries. I must say, I look forward to it...well, a girl can dream anyway!
