enjoyable fluff
11 November 2001 | by beardoukSee all my reviews

Not sure what the makers were planning - but they weren't going for any deep comments on the position of hispanics in modern America.

This is lightweight to the extreme - but on its own terms quite enjoyable.

Even my wife (who is a MASSIVE fan of Thalia) felt the film was disappointing.
