View only if you enjoy stereotypes
If there is a good reason to view this movie is only if you enjoy stereotyping. The movie did an "excellent" job at validating all the stereotypes existent for any one who has lived in that area. Is that good? Not in my book, and it will NEVER compare to Nothing Like the Holidays, which set a separate bar and standard, high, Chicago Boricua set a new LOW. Poor acting, cheap direction, depressing theme, and the already cliché of adding tons of foul language and stereotypes about the Puerto Rican community, not only in Chicago, but ANYWHERE in the U.S.A. You can definitely make a movie without the need of trash language, but it seems that such coarseness in language is a must nowadays. Lack of creativity perhaps? Don't waste a dollar or two on renting this movie, better play lotto with it.
