Movie Reviews

Better than I expected...
Kyralessa | St Louis, MO | 04/14/2002
(3 out of 5 stars)

"My wife rented this, but unlike some of her other choices, I actually watched to the end. The broad outlines of the story are a typical girl meets boy-from-wrong-side-of-the-tracks love story, but there are a few surprises and a few laughs along the way. Other than a few absurdly over-the-top performances (Sirena's friends, and Pauly Shore) the cast is competent and enjoyable to watch. So if you're thinking of renting, it's worth seeing once. Cute story.If you're thinking of buying the DVD, though, note that it's probably overpriced. There's no main title screen. The DVD starts with ads for other films that you can fast forward through but can't skip entirely, and there's no main title screen at all; the movie just starts right in after the ads are done. In addition, while the movie is full-frame, fitting for a made-for-TV movie, there's an annoying line of artifacts at the top of the screen through the whole thing.To sum up: A decent rent, but a terrible buy."
Feel Good Movie

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This was such a feel-good and heartwarming film. It was so nice to finally view a movie with strong emphasis on family values. I highly recommend this movie for every member of the family."
Good, clean romance movie
Jason Kosek | south of Chicago, IL USA | 07/07/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"If you're looking for a somewhat predictable "chick flick," this one's perfect. My wife lets her Spanish students watch this movie every year, because it's clean and gives insight into the Spanish culture and language. The story follows the "Romeo and Juliet" theme in modern times."
Enjoyable for the whole family! Great for high school viewin
Ivy Jolie | Tucson, Arizona | 10/03/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Wonderfully acted, entertaining story about a young girl mourning the death of her mother and trying to come to terms with dad's (Edward James Olmos) new girlfriend. (The delightfully wicked Maria Conchita Alonso.) A funny, light comedy the whole family can watch. It is also a great film to show in a high school class, it will encourage dialogue about classism, racism, and interestingly, how members of the same minority group can judge each other so harshly. Top notch acting, beautifully filmed. Rent it or buy it! It is well worth it. Kudos to Tony Plana (he's appeared in An Officer and a Gentleman, Sweet 15) for directing this engaging film."
