Movie Info

An old fashioned tale is told with a few modern twists in this family drama, set primarily in the racially blended 167th block of the Bronx. The street is filled with many people. Tensions can run high and occasionally erupt into violence. Recently a slain cop was memorialized on a neighborhood mural. The late cop was Chino's brother. Chino is concerned with his machismo and even times himself as he has sex with Lisette his wife. Other than sack time, the two lead a hectic family life. Not only do they have three wild children of their own, they must also deal with Lisette's brother who wants to be a transsexual, and with Alexis, Chino's nit-picky mother. In addition they are always embroiled with financial problems. Chino is still being pursued by Magdalena who may have borne his child. Chino is thrown in jail after stealing during a black-out. Lisette, to pay his bail ends up as an assistant to record label executive Stephen Price. After hearing a rumor that Lisette has become involved with Price, Chino begins an affair with Magdalene upon his release. The children suffer from the actions of their parents.more

Audience Reviews for I Like It Like That

Crap. How did this end up as a Film Festival pic. The characters have the complexity of cardboard as they meet stereotypes well.

One of those quirky movies you can't help but watch and then you watch it again and find yourself picking out your favorite parts and it doesn't hurt that cute Jon Seda is in in.
