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 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.
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.
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.
