"Bad Lucky Goat" is a film made by Colombians but I didn't notice a single word of Spanish in the movie. It's actually set on some unnamed island that is a lot like Jamaica and they speak a form of Creole (it's absolutely nothing like Haitian Creole). Regardless, you'll find yourself reading subtitles and I think it's worth it.

The story concerns Corn (short for 'Cornelius') and his sister (her name isn't listed on IMDb...I think it might have been Lisa) as they go on a small errand that turns out to be a lengthy and unpredictable adventure. It all starts with them destroying the family's truck, as they're bickering so much they don't see a goat walking into their path. Exactly where it goes next...well, just see it for yourself.

There isn't a lot of deep meaning here...just a nice road trip movie with lots of Caribbean culture and charm. Well worth seeing.
