Storyline

The Shrimp On The Barbie  Carlos (Cheech Marin) failed in the show-biz and currently works as waiter in a Mexican restaurant. There he meets Alex (Emma Samms) and dumb footballer Bruce (Vernon Wells), who celebrate their engagement with her parents. Alex’ father (Terence Cooper)is less than thrilled of her fiancée and says he’d rather accept anybody else. Eventually Alex hires Carlos to present him as her new fiancée. But her father sees through the game…

Sweet Movie

The Shrimp On The Barbie  Why the Aussies made this movie is a mystery to me, but I’m glad they did.

Featuring American actors Cheech Marin and Emma Samms, this is a beautiful comedy that has style, fashion, and good acting.

Everyone’s playing strait except Cheech Marin, but it’s not quite certain who’s the real fool. What was supposed to be a bright idea by Alex turns into a handful of trouble.

Emma Samms is stunningly beautiful in this movie. This has a surreal effect in a comedy situation. But maybe that’s the charm of this movie.

Unusual in every way, but it’s still a great romantic comedy shot beautifully in Australia. I enjoy it every time I see it.

Great family movie, vacation movie, date movie, repeat movie

This movie is a “find” that you will always enjoy. Although set in a classic chicano v. anglo (or rather Aussie) frame, anyone that has had a rebellious family member or mismatched lovers will relate to this story, and that should be everyone. Marin is the ELA che who is hired to rub Dad the wrong way by Daddy’s baby girl, played by Emma Samm. Her himbo boyfriend can’t take a hint, but Marin keeps taking a dive. The Freudian equestrian cousin is the best character in the movie–you’ll want to see it again just for this memorable scene.

Well, it’s a chick’s movie, so you know how it works out, but the comedy set-ups and Emma are so good, and Marin is so realistic, that it works for the guys.
