Movie Info

Mexican director Issa López's show business-themed comedy drama Casi Divas (Road to Fame) follows the adventures of four aspiring actresses clamoring for a coveted part in a hotshot producer's new movie. The producer in question launches a national talent search to find his dream actress, which pits the quartet of hopefuls in a spate of intense competition against one another -- despite the rumor that the producer's girlfriend will land the part by default. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi

The "casi" in Casi Divas translates to "almost," and it's an appropriate word for the film as a whole.

A shrill and gaudy comedy about the quest for celebrity.

A comedy with just the right blend of satire, social comment, myriad complications, romance and heart-tugging to give it some deft shading and variety.

With a surrogate for every demographic and a heroine for every taste, Casi Divas jiggles and jokes its way around as many Mexican box-office bases as possible.

[A] gloriously flamboyant comedic extravaganza.

A none-too-clever but hustling-to-please Mexican comedy.

The film's girl-to-girl comedy far outshines its frequent bursts of melodrama, two-dimensional male characters (especially Julio Bracho as the producer of the talent show) and surprising lack of suspense over who will win the contest.

Mildly engaging, wickedly funny and peppy with a lively ensemble cast, but it could have used a stronger dose of imagination, satirical bite and wit.

NYC Movie Guru

A funny television satire and heartening viewing experience that has personal lessons in courage as well as much needed commentary on US/Mexican border relations.

Full of enthusiasm but short on wit or self-awareness, Casi Divas is pretty weak as satire.

Audience Reviews for Casi Divas (Road to Fame)

When the movie's funny, it's really funny (the trashy Kat & Kim-like girl was fabulous)... but it's not very often. The problem is they should've just stick with the comic tone because everytime it got too serious it ended up losing balance.
