Audience Reviews for A Million to Juan


I remember this film and I can't help but love it.

Leo L

Super Reviewer


What a sweet little film. It's very sincere and means well. It has a good moral to the story, a happy ending and a surprisingly good cast. Paul Rodriguez scores as both an actor and director. Nicely written. Polly Draper is also very good. Simple, to the point and very moving.
