It was a bachelor's life for hard-working and fun-loving Ray Ray Domingguez who dreams of leaving the barrio for a more carefree existence in Miami. That's until one day when everything changed - and he became a reluctant "Tio Papi" to his sister's six children ages 6 to 16. Now in charge of raising this energetic (and expensive)clan, Ray Ray must make important decisions on what life is really all about. Combining heart-warming drama with light hearted comedy, "Tio Papi", directed by Fro Rojas from the original screenplay by Joey Dedio and Brian Herskowitz, is an upbeat story of life's unexpected surprises and ultimately what matters the most -- the love of family.

10 August 2015 | by startrekfan72See all my reviews

Tio papi it's an incredible film I give it 10 out of 10 stars it is a great family film appropriate for children of all ages it teaches family values togetherness compassion loyalty it also teaches that family is the most important thing in the world when the chips are down your family is where you go so it was a little known cast the acting was absolutely first rate this film teaches that anything is possible where there is a will there is a way. if you put your mind to it you can come out of adversity that more than anything is what I think this film teaches I would give the producers directors and absolute thumbs up great job there is nothing inappropriate in this film it is appropriate for children of all ages young and old I would call this film a hidden gem
