Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
As all too many people know from painful experience, or can figure out with a little math, the friendly people who offer Easy Monthly Payments know that they've got you paying through the nose for their little conveniences. Unfortunately for Jose, even though he was on the fast-track at work, he felt obligated to marry his pregnant girlfriend, and he now has so many new obligations to attend to immediately that he swiftly falls prey to the lure of comodas mensualidades. He finally realizes that he's in serious trouble when he can't get their newborn baby out of the hospital until he pays the bill -- and he can't pay the bill! This comedy which pokes fun at the pretensions of Mexico's "yuppie" class, includes such rituals as the inexplicable visits of Japanese businessmen, and the mad cheeriness of the dialogues taught by instructors in business English classes.
