Yes, it's predictable. Of course, it follows a formula. But damn if this isn't Guzman's show.
It's charming. It's funny.
Luis Guzman is an instantly recognizable character actor who deserves his shot at being the face of a film. It's just unfortunate that the film turns out to be the lethargic and rarely funny fish-out-of-American-water comedy Puerto Ricans in Paris.
It's difficult to see how the film itself could be any less substantial without evaporating on screen.
A formulaic fish-out-of-water buddy caper given an amusing boost with a casual scrunch of Guzmán's pug-nosed mug.
Guzman and Garcia (reunited from HBO's "How to Make It in America") are a joy to watch, and deliver their lines with just enough nuance to make them truly endearing; sometimes it works, others not so much.
While the detective duo's plans to cruise on charm may backfire at times, the same can't be said for the film which, given the room to breathe, is quite the pleasant diversion.
Lacks the comedy it craves.
Culture-clash buddy comedy has some crude humor, gun use.
There are no laughs, the plot is a bore, and visiting Paris is just an excuse to wheel out postcard backdrops and attractive women. And yet Guzmán and Garcia are good together.
At least the title accurately describes the culture-clash shenanigans in this lackluster low-budget comedy.
The grand takeaway from Puerto Ricans in Paris, which delivers what you'd expect and not much else, is that someone ought to finally give Luis Guzmán the leading role of a lifetime.
