Now Cardona and de Varona appear to be expanding their cultural reference points, with mixed results. If the characters in Bro are less overtly Cuban than those in Mud, Water, and Factories, they are no better developed or any more original. Okay, so Dom is Cuban Italian, “ a pineapple pizza,” but the type -- wisecracking, would-be hustler of vague origin -- is instantly recognizable from countless films (not coincidentally, Andy Garcia played him in Just the Ticket). And, of course, from television.
But perhaps there's a better point of comparison for Bro than Seinfeld. And, maybe, just maybe, there's a future marketing deal in the works for Dom, Max, and Santi:
“Whaaaaaazzzzzuuuuuup, bro? Whatcha doin'?”
“Nothing. Watching Odalys on Lente Loco. Havin' an Iron Beer. Chillin'.” - Gaspar González
