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.

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.

Film Journal International

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.

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.

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

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

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