Movie Info

A tightly knit New Mexico community devoted to God, family, and fresh Mexican food is unexpectedly thrust into the national spotlight when the face of Jesus Christ appears on a tasty tortilla as the owner and head cook prepares for the Sunday lunch rush. Isidor Navarro (José Zuņiga) is the owner and proprietor of Tortilla Heaven -- a modest Mexican restaurant located in the remote town of Falfurrias. Though Tortilla Heaven may indeed have the best food in all of New Mexico, the only people aware

As flat as a tortilla and consid-erably less nourishing.

The film and its makers simply try too hard. Director and co-writer Judy Hecht Dumontet can't stop 'helping' with overactive editing and scoring.

[A] clumsy family comedy.

For all of its flaws and shortcomings, Tortilla Heaven can't help but be charming and undeniably entertaining.

Oh how I wanted to like "Tortilla Heaven." Really like it. Saturday-afternoon-movie like it.

This corn Tortilla is an undercooked mess.

March 24, 2007 Full Review Source:

If Tortilla Heaven is supposed to be a more serious exploration of faith and greed it's a total failure, given that it doesn't address a single question it raises with any depth.

March 23, 2007

A well-meaning and hard-fought project that begins as a wacky small-town fable and veers disastrously into a leaden satire of religion and capitalism.

Tortilla Heaven is a consistently engaging motion picture, made with obvious love for the isolated location and for the spirit of a supportive community.

March 15, 2007 Full Review Source:

This modest little parable from director/cowriter Judy Hecht Dumontet is a variation on an old theme

March 15, 2007

Like a piece of fast food: it's simple and painless - even tasty at times - but it's not overly nutritious.
