PUERTO RICANS IN PARIS REVIEWED

“Puerto Ricans in Paris” is a rather simple comedy. Two Puerto Ricans cops in NYC get sent to Paris to hunt down a black market thief. The film plays like a mid 1980s buddy cop picture with an assortment of cameos. That being said, I can easily see how a ton of people passed it up. The film is a short jaunt that relies on the two leads’ charms. For two characters actors that are rarely known outside of niche film-going communities, that’s a tough sell during the summer.

Honestly, I have a hard time seeing why it was rated R. Does a few language slips automatically make something R in this day and age? The MPAA feels like a well-meaning grandparent that just doesn’t get what works anymore. But, they’re the proxy board that’s supposed to skirt past government censorship while still being a partially government mandated censor. Read your history, people. For the amount of people that love action comedies, there’s no reason that something like this couldn’t have received some of that “Central Intelligence” cross-traffic. Be brave and give it a shot this weekend.
