Movie Reviews

CHEESY, SOAPY, I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This film has a sort of grainy picture quality and it is teary and soapy! I LOVE IT! I love the way every dramatic scene is accompanied by the CHEESY organ music! And Vicente has a flair for comedy, there are several "charming" scenes...Vicente delivering the baby in the car, the puppet scene, the bunny scene!The best reason to watch this DVD, of course, is to see the interaction between father and son Mexican superstars, Vicente and Alejandro Fernandez. Alejandro is SO young here, but he is SO beautiful, and sings like a god! The VOICE is incredible. There are two songs in this film that I ADORE...."TIEMPO"...and "EL ANDARIEGO". I have not found Alejandro's version of Tiempo anywhere else....I have a cd of boleros by Vicente that include this song. (Actually, if you listen to Vicente sing it, you would almost think it was Alejandro)The last scene is the reason that I bought the film in the first place....I wanted to see father and son sing TOGETHER! The last song is "Cuando Yo Queria Ser Grande"...this song is on Alejandro's first is also one that he sings on tour with his dad. To see that beautiful face streaked with tears...father's hand reaching up to touch his son's face...the little wink (they BOTH do it) was worth every penny to see this!My only disappointment with the DVD was that I had hoped it would have a language option...I know only limited Spanish, and the film does not have sub-titles. You don't really need to know what is being said to understand what is going on, its pretty obvious. The DVD has an extra biography of Vicente not found on the VHS version...however, this too is in Spanish. Still, it is interesting to watch."

"Es lo mejor que se puede ver en un DVD, a dos grandes estrellas de la musica Mexicana. Relata una historia conmovedora que muchos o casi muchos tienen la anegdota de haberla vivido. La magia digital a plasmado a estos dos grandes en formato DVD. No se puede dejar de apreciar el audio de *Cuando Yo Queria Ser Grande* tema principal de la pelicula...."
Wonderfully moving!

"I watched this movie twice in a row and cried most of the way through it both times. I had borrowed it from a high school student in a class that I substituted, and although my Spanish isn't that good, I loved it! Too bad there isn't a soundtrack! I am a true blue Alex fan ever since I heard him sing the first note of the first song, and I was thrilled to see this movie. Although I wasn't very big on his father, after watching the movie, I am now a fan of his as well. My student recommended that I look here to buy it, because I have looked unsuccesfully in all the local stores."
Very touching

"This is a very touching movie about a father(Chente) struggling to get his son (Alejandro) to notice, while at the same time the mother tries to seperate them and tries to avoid contact with chente's charector. It has many tearful moments, and overall this is a true classic. I really recomend it."
