Fast & Furious 6
The Hangover Part III
The "casi" in Casi Divas translates to "almost," and it's an appropriate word for the film as a whole.
| Original Score: 6/10
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.
| Original Score: 2/5
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.
| Original Score: 7.0/10
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.
| Original Score: 8/10
A shrill and gaudy comedy about the quest for celebrity.
| Original Score: 2/4
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.
| Original Score: 4/5
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.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
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.
