Hopeless Hopeful

A clumsy guy attempts to rob a bank to fund his wife's heart surgery in this clever Puerto Rican comedy. Although I was underwelmed by the cinematography, I enjoyed the triangle of characters featured in this film. While the script would have you think the male lead is the center of the film, the true heart lies with the two female leads, and I was slightly surprised by the mild twist at the end. I was not surprised by the use of cupcakes as a plot device, but I liked the wife's coworker who could not find the right word for the miniature pastry. It reminded me of this little ditty.

Here's a trailer:
