Absolute garbage. Not even worth watching for free on Netflix.

"It is about time someone writes about the realities that Puerto Ricans are faced with in the inner city. Although this movie was not intended to be the "be all and end all" of any Puerto Rican community, it touches on real issues and obstacles that many of us face on a daily bases.
The movie touches on issues of Identity, Sexuality, Substance Abuse and Gentrification. I give Marisol Torres and the cast 2 thumbs up for addressing issues that most people would not dare go near beacuse they are not "Politicaly Correct.""

"The white people were not portrayed well in this movie either. As a gringo who has always liked hispanics, I found it disturbing to see Puerto Rican characters always regarding white people as rude, calculating, ruthless, and prejudiced. German/Herman's conversion into that kind of person is not so much about the difference between hispanics and whites but rather the difference between, say, a small, family-owned business and impersonal corporate culture.
If you want to see some really good movies about Hispanic Americans, try Raising Victor Vargas, Wassup Rockers, Manito, and La Ciudad. (I've heard that Washington Heights is also good, but I haven't seen that one yet.)"
