“Damn! You don’t even pick up Puerto Ricans here either.”

The trailer for “Puerto Ricans in Paris” is here and it looks like a hilarious, action-packed comedy. Two detectives from New York are asked by Paris police to help them track down a very expensive and rare handbag. Why a handbag? Because a handbag of that caliber in the wrong hands could really spell disaster for the fashion industry. The two Boricua detectives cover the entire city of Paris hunting down this handbag while their relationships back in the States hang in the balance. Think of it as a Boricua “Bad Boys.”

Armando Christian Pérez is an executive producer for the film. You know him as Pitbull.

He even offered his vocal talents to the soundtrack because Mr. Worldwide never under-delivers.

Edgar Garcia is a pretty new face on the Latino acting scene, but you definitely know Luis Guzmán from “Carlitos Way,”  “Narcos,” and “Journey 2: The Mysterious Island.”

She is the at-her-wits-end wife of Eddie.

Seriously, though. It’s nice to go to the movies and see Latinos in leading role.
