Puerto Ricans in Paris

Puerto Ricans in Paris is a 2015 American comedy film directed by Ian Edelman and written by Neel Shah and Ian Edelman.
Luis and Eddie are police detectives and long-time partners. Eddie is married to Luis's sister Gloria and struggles to support their family. He yearns to give Gloria a better life. Meanwhile, Luis has been with his girlfriend Vanessa for a long time, but constantly flirts with other women.
One day the two are visited by famous Parisian fashion designer Colette and Vincent, one of her executives. One of Colette’s purse designs has been stolen and held for a high ransom. She believes the French police won’t act in time to recover it, so she has traveled to New York City to hire NYPD detectives, whom she feels would do better. The two Puerto Rican detectives go to Paris to find the prototype for the designs.
The title accurately describes the culture-clash shenanigans in this lackluster low-budget comedy, full of cliched postcard pretty backdrops and berets.
