Raising Victor Vargas is a 2003 drama about a teenaged Casanova named Victor Vargas - a boy who has gained a reputation for trying to make Manhattan's Lower East Side his own romantic playground. After his sister (Krystal Rodriguez) initially finds out he has slept with an upstairs neighbor nicknamed, "Fat Donna" (Donna Maldonado) she spreads the unflattering news to his friends and Victor is worried the incident may have hurt his street credibility among them. Victor comes to the conclusion that he must find a new girl and the popular "Juicy Judy" Ramirez (Judy Marte) finds herself the object of his affection. After getting turned down, Victor eventually strikes a deal with Judy's younger brother, Carlos (Wilfree Vasquez), which would enable him to get closer to Judy if Carlos could get a date with Victor's younger sister. The plan works as Judy begrudgingly agrees to make him her new "man" and by doing so, Victor flies to the top of the neighborhood's social pecking order. Unfortunately, his grandmother does not approve of Victor letting his sister see a boy and is worried about his growing negative influence on his two younger siblings. Victor is then forced to regain his grandmother's trust, while discovering there is a difference between acting like a man and being one.moreless
