On the island, their arrival is met with dismay by Don Pedro and his business associates as they fear the focus on the Puerto Rico fever will depress their business; so they plan to deny its existence.

Formulaic, superficially acted (although the Deacon and the guy from Brooklyn were ok) and just poorly put together. This could have been a great movie, yet I feel like I just wasted 1.5 hours of my life.

I can't tell if this was good or bad, but if you feel like wallowing in uncorrected clinical depression this is your movie. *directed by Jake Gyllenhall's dad.
