Movie Info

"Puerto Ricans In Paris" is a story of friendship, loyalty and a life-changing trip to Paris. Detectives Luis Lopez and Eddie Garcia are childhood best friends, brother-in-laws, and partners in the New York Police Department Luxury Goods Recovery Unit tasked with hunting down Canal Street's infamous bootleggers. With Luis as the slick, self-styled "brains" of the operation and Eddie as the shy, quiet "muscle," they've been running through the streets of the Lower East side in search of fake Louis Vuitton for 20 years - long enough for them to be the best in the business. While their work mostly keeps them below 14th Street, a random visit from a celebrated French designer and her business partner set in motion a sequence of events that take them on a wild goose chase through the streets of Paris - from fashion parties to hipster nightclubs - in search of a stolen handbag (and delicious French macarons). As the investigation deepens with no sign of the bag, our two best friends start to grow suspicious of everyone around them - including each other. "Puerto Ricans in Paris" is a fashion whodunnit with laughs, drop-crotch pants, and a lot of heart.

All Critics (22) | Top Critics (10)

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.
