Featuring the talents of John Leguizamo ("To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar"), Doug E. Doug ("Cool Runnings"), Mario Joyner ("The Chris Rock Show") and Nestor Serrano, the film provided the audience with four fresh characters and places them in a series of occurrences that make them realize how different they real are from one another. From Fernando's (Serrano) scam of impersonating an Italian in order to attract girls (he is Puerto Rican) to the final scene beneath the Metro North bridge in Manhattan, the character's all accept change at the end. The most memorable part of this film has to be when John Leguizamo discovers that the girl he is in love with is a totally different person, which makes him accept reality and inspires him to find a way out of the social state he currently is in.
The film is an excellent tribute to anyone who has grown up in New York City. Director Joseph Vasquez did an excellent job of writing and producing this small-budget film. Sadly, Vasquez, who at the time was using heroin, died from complications of AIDS a few years after the film's release. The film serves as a wonderful legacy for a genius that gave the world an excellent story with touches of humanism sprinkled throughout.
If you liked "American Graffiti" then give this film a chance. I also recommend "I Like It Like That" to anyone in a mood of seeing films in the Bronx.
