Additional Info

This wild farce mauls both the English and the Spanish languages as it lampoons the pretensions of upwardly mobile Latinos, the snobberies of Gringos, high fashion, trendy restaurants and just about everything else. The perpetrators of the mayhem are gathered in a Queens restaurant just after Spanish has been outlawed, this to be enforced by language police. The proprietor and his patrons comply with the law by adopting English sounding names and trying to speak in a style they associate with high society.
