Reviewed on 5/24/2009...
Very cute movie- Adela's father is running for Mayor and needs the endorsement of Mr. Van der Linde, who won't give his approval until Adela mends her wild and crazy ways and avoids scandal. Senor Leon enrolls her in a finishing school, where, hopefully, she will be transformed into the perfect lady and hostess. Adela's irrepressible personality shines through as she interacts wth the other girls at the school. The movie is funny and the girls are charming, even though they are supposed to be "ninas mal"- bad girls.

Charmingly Funny and Entertaining
Leon Ramon Santoyo | San Clemente, CA, USA | 12/26/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Although I would consider this a chick flick, the mexican type of humor allows this to be entertaing even for guys. The playful and sometimes even cheesy sexuality in the movie is not at all distasteful or unnecessary, but rather adds to the comedic sense of the film and gives it a sensual touch. Martha Higareda is a great and beautiful actress, and truly gives her character life as she portrays a young and rebelious senator's daughter, who is sent to an academy for ladies where she is to learn how to act like a proper woman in order to not ruin her father's campaign. The movie has great music by Ximena Sariñana, who also stars in this movie along with Rafael Sanchez Navarro, Blanca Guerra, Camila Sodi, and directed by Fernando Sariñana. If you are a fan of mexican comedies, then this is definately one to watch.
