Overview

A Hispanic woman unexpectedly discovers a new outlook on life after taking a new job in this heartfelt, observant comedy-drama. Young Bronx mother Lisette (Lauren Velez) has enough to deal with without taking a job, as she is struggling to raise her three young children and keep her marriage to bicycle messenger Chino (Jon Seda) afloat. When Chino is jailed after committing a robbery, however, Lisette turns to the want ads to find a new source of income. Expecting a one-time modeling gig, she stumbles into a position as assistant to Stephen Price (Griffin Dunne), a white music executive handling Latino music. Lisette proves a natural at the job, finding a new sense of purpose and self-assurance. Unfortunately, Chino isn't particularly grateful for her efforts, especially after hearing a rumor that Lisette has been cheating on him with Stephen. Director Darnell Martin populates her debut film with a mosaic of colorful supporting characters, ranging from Lisette's transsexual brother (Jesse Borrego) to Chino's meddling mother (Rita Moreno). Though the film presents a relatively old-fashioned story of self-realization, the knowing presentation of a multi-racial Bronx neighborhood enhances its vital feel.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Jason Clark
An unsurprising but mostly agreeable first feature from Darnell Martin, I Like It Like That appealingly marks its depiction of a predominately Latino area of the Bronx with honesty and some wit. Its setting lends the film freshness, and Lauren Velez gives a likable, spirited performance as a woman with aspirations to be something other than a harried housewife and mother. A creditable first effort by any standard, the film is on track for most of its running time, but suffers slightly from a silly subplot involving the lead character's music-business employment (and the relationship with her sleazy boss played by Griffin Dunne), which is out of tune with the rest of the picture. Shockingly, this is the first studio-film in history ever to be directed by a Latino woman; happily, it managed to find an audience upon release, giving hope to other female filmmakers with similar ambitions.

    A must see Latin movie for all to enjoy!

    I loved this movie when it came out in '94 and I still love it now! Finally, someone got the nerve to do a movie about Latins (mainly Puerto Ricans) that make up a large part of the Latinos nationwide. It shows the struggles as well as the unity and the strength one goes through with family and the community. It's funny, sad and sexy all rolled into one! The music is sweet too. Enjoy! :)
