Puerto Ricans In Paris Reviews

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 Guzmn'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.

Mr. Guzmn and Mr. Garcia have an unforced chemistry. But the effective jokes land too rarely. You'll be ready to leave when the trip is over.

Despite its baseline-appealing leads, "Puerto Ricans in Paris" is too low-key to be a memorable trip.

Guzman overpowers the rest of the movie - but like LeBron James and his one-man show during the 2015 NBA Finals, that's not ideal.

Often Guzmn finds himself reduced to a sight gag-though to be fair, it is funny to see him outfitted in an airbrushed Bruno Mars T-shirt.
