Movie Reviews

Easy going and delightful fun
Movie Maven | 05/10/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This movie was on Flix this morning, and I was surprised at how good it was--I'd never heard of it. A. Martinez is just hilarious playing the, shall we say, "delusional" commandante. Esai Morales is a great comedy villain, and the young romance is gentle and sweet.

Like "The Fantasticks," there's an innocence to the goings-on, and when the Commandante's daughter finally sees the poor side of her island, her eyes are opened. Gives the film a lovely Capra-esquire quality, when the classes bump against each other in a great comedic clash.

It won't bump the greatest movies of all time off the list, but it's a lighthearted romp with a lot of heart and uplift, a real find.

Even LMN doesn't show this

"About to embark on an arranged marriage, the daughter of a Caribbean dictator (Charlotte Ayana) crashes into a poor fisherman (Kuno Becker). Injured, she brings him home to the mansion, where he continues to hurt himself so he can stay and she fights her attraction to the inappropriate suitor while getting ready for her wedding. Meanwhile, the commandant (A Martinez) is off in his own little world since losing his beloved wife, unaware that there is something fishy going on with his government.

The acting is pretty bad, with accents all over the place (and a camera fixated on Ayanna's light blue eyes which appeared scary at times). I had a hard time with Esai Morales in this comedy role - he is funny, but not in here - it was like he was channeling Raul Julia as Gomez Adams - a poor imitation at that. It's basically a cheesy Lifetime movie that isn't even good enough for repeat viewings on LMN."
