Sanky Panky

Synopsis: In Dominican Republic, the local Genaro works in a small family store and lives with his mother in a poor neighborhood. He is learning a couple of words in English and dreams on being a sanky-panky to get married to an American tourist to move to New York with a VISA and have a better life. He calls his friend Giussepe, who is the manager of a resort in Bávaro, and applies for a job position entertaining children but expecting to find a wealthy tourist. Genaro meets the gorgeous Martha, who has come from New Jersey with her fat aunts Dorothy and Helen, to forget her fiancé after calling off her wedding. Genaro calls his best friends, the womanizer Chelo and the gluttonous Carlitos, to date the aunts and live him alone with Martha. Martha only speak English and Genaro just know a couple of words in English, but everything works out the way he had schemed until the day Martha's boyfriend comes to the resort.

Genaro let me get a mint.

Give me a mint!

Give me a candy!

A mint Genaro!

You should at least warn me

when you come in.

Made me choke on my English!

What do you want?

I want a mint.

This is...

This is...

Here's your mint, give it here.

Oh, I'm in the wrong market.

I better go to the next street, bye.

Sure, you go ahead.

Hope a truck runs over

your dumb heads.

Are you still trying English by mail?

It doesn't work around here.

Around here English is the language

of the rich or the destitute...

Just look at you.

Am I rich?

I got no choice but

to learn by mail.

I take care of it with Juana.

Look here...

Are you freaking nuts?

Put it away.

Can you picture me robbing a bank?

I borrowed it from Miguelito...

He hooked up with the American hag.

If he did so well, why can't I?

You should fight your battle here.

Why don't you get a local rich hag?

Would they look at this bag of bones?

I think we should struggle here.

That's bull.

One should struggle

where there's money?

Do you see any around here?

Do you see money?

Oh my! Look a bag of money...

no wait, it's just candy.

There's no money.

The money is held by a few people.

This country is a big old

garbage bag...

And no one has a clue

what to do with it.

The man just had it...

Not just tired of it, I HAD IT!

Same thing.

The ones doing great are... politicians,

government officials, baseball players...

And a couple of mega-divas!

Beat it guys!

I can't waste my time talking

to you slackers. Beat it.

That's enough, don't get so worked up.

Besides, you should turn

down that music.

Easy my man.

Genaro is our friend.

He's just a bit upset.

Cause he can't even learn how

to say sausage in English.

True, I don't know how to say it, but...

I know how to say "your mother!"

What does it mean?

That you are hip, a la mode!

I thought it meant something else.

So I am "your mother"?

Yeah, your t-shirt is your

mother, your mother...

Genaro the destitute.

The guys are right.

If Miguelito did well,

why can't I?

For one, he's good looking.

A good physique, robust, strong.

A deep gaze...

So I have a gay son?

For God sake mom!

I don't mind it that much.

Well, I don't care.

You figure it out, you do that.

But mom...

Your dad must be turning in his grave.

Can't you see how things

are around here mom?

Money is always in the same

pockets, with same people.

You just figured that out?

What world do you live in?

Be grateful for what you have.

And thank God for this shack.

Where you get three square meals...

Many people would kill for this...

Hut, what Shack?

I can't stand this anymore...

Who can stand this?

So what are you going to do?

Your uncle fired you from the car shop;

you couldn't even turn a screw.

Be grateful for what you got,

just as your parents did.

I can't mom.

I can't.

I can't watch you struggling

just to keep the shop going...

Taking shit from the rich...

The Sunday drunks...

I can't stand that.

Just to see you perish penniless

on that counter... Just like dad.

That I won't stand for.

Oh? Baby...

Who the hell is making so much noise?

Just when you're working...

Where are you going?

I go to see who is calling.

You'll leave me all alone?

No, I'll be right back baby...

Don't go anywhere, be right back.

Who the hell could this be?

What's all this noise my brother?

You think this is the farmers market?

This is my house.

What's up?

Gotta borrow your truck

to go see Miguelito.

Lend you my what?

Are you going nuts?

Miguelito lives far away...

Besides, my mom is here

and I'm working.
