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

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.

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.

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

[A] gloriously flamboyant comedic extravaganza.

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