Who says corny is a bad thing?
(4 out of 5 stars)
"I am an intermediate-or-so student of Spanish, so I only understand 25-30% of the dialogue, but I could easily follow the plot because I could figure out the other 70% from the context. As a modern norteamericana, I know I'm not "supposed to" like anything with a sexist message, but I'm sorry, I LIKED this film a lot! Mostly because the characters--even the macho ones!--are so darn likable. Also, I love spunky women, and the daughter, Diana, is irresistible. Even though the ultimate message is kind of sexist, the macho hero gets "pie in his face" often enough to make you think the director is poking a little fun at the macho mystique at the same time. Just leave your political correctness at the door, and you'll enjoy this film. Ultimately, I liked it because it's a cute story, has a happy ending, and features the beautiful northern Mexico landscape that I love."
