Well-meaning attempt at a band of misfits taking down an entitled white woman. There's some humor and if you allow for the fact it's meant as rather a spoof, it's lightweight, mainstream entertainment. However, I didn't find it very funny.

AKA Bandits, a comedy about a heist by a couple of virtuous legendary thieves, revered as "The Robin Hoods who rob thieves," with help from an array of colorful local characters. A decent enough original script and good acting, overall a delightful caper from Dominican Republic.

Emilio to FBI agents: Congratulations. You've been caught red-handed. Details. If you don't consider all details, you will get caught. The heist isn't made in the vault. The heist is made in the planning.

Santiago to a Japanese Client: Relax. The market goes up and it goes down, Mr. Nakatomi. But, fortunately for you, Santiago Guzman owns this town. So, when I say to you that your stock will have a dividend yield of 22.46%, trust me, it's gonna be raining yen.
===
Santiago: Within the risk-return spectrum, I'd have to classify this heist as a junk bond. ... It means,
high yield, but too much risk. ...
Alejandro: ... That's Fransisco. Top of his class. Wanted to be a lawyer. But right now, he has to work in a factory. Margarita? Excellent student. Accepted into a school of medicine. She had to drop out. Why? Because she's broke. There's a lot of talent here. But very few opportunities to show it. Because they're forced to pay high rents to Miranda.
