Harmless yet considerably dull, I Like It Like That is the story of a harried Bronx woman (Vélez) who tries to make ends despite a housefull of kids, a cheating in-and-out-of-jail husband, nosy neighbors, and virtually no money. Her exploits typically involve screaming and door-slamming, until she gets a job working for record producer Dunne, when the comedy in the film is at its best. Not that it's great, but it's passable.
Now a cast list doesn't get much worse than that. With a few bright points (Whaley, Walsh), there's nary a talented bone up there. But surprise, this isn't such a bad movie. Oh, the plot is asinine -- in the middle of Texas, a bunch of travelers converge for a little mayhem, right next door to a government time machine. Lots of explosions, and Whirry has almost no lines. Whew!
