Critic Reviews for From Prada to Nada
The broad humour and cultural caricatures in the film's opening moments will be especially dispiriting to any English literature professors in the audience.
If the effort to shoehorn Austen's social commentary into a modern context sometimes seems nonsensical or forced, the actors-especially now-grown Spy Kid Vega-have charm to spare.
There's something crassly disingenuous about the movie's blatant demographic pandering (hooray for immigration-panic jokes!) and half-a--ed condemnation of gluttony.
Simply put, From Prada To Nada is Sense And Sensibility For Dummies, as set in modern-day Los Angeles.
Audience Reviews for From Prada to Nada
Cast: Camilla Belle, Alexa Vega, Wilmer Valderrama, Nicholas D'Agosto, April Bowlby, Kuno Becker, Adriana Barraza, Pablo Cruz, Karla Souza, Alexis Ayala
Director: Angel Gracia
Summary: Two Latina sisters accustomed to luxury and high style become penniless when their father dies, forcing them to move in with working class relatives, in this spirited comedy loosely based on Jane Austen's "Sense and Sensibility."
My Thoughts: "I liked the movie. It was just a light dramedy that had some likeable characters. Well likeable by the end, the beginning, not so much. It took some time to warm up to the characters but when I did I didn't hate them. The acting was good by most. But this is one of the better straight to DVD dramedies out these days. Good job by Alexa Vega. Camilla Belle was just lifeless in this role, but you can't blame her for it was the character that made her such a bore. But not a bad film. Even Wilmer Valderrama did a good job in his supporting role. Just a flick that would be good to watch on a long rainy day."
I thought that this was cute. And when did Wilmer Valderrama grow up to be such a hottie? hmmmm. Anyway, not the best, but definitely enjoyable enough.
I was expecting this film to be funny with a little bit of drama; it was actually drama with a little bit of comedy. It was not as silly as advertised. However it does dive into Mexican culture, but adds some predictable romantic twists.
It was well acted with Wilmer Valderrama fitting nicely into this film. Overall it was not what I expected, but a solid film. If you love Mexican culture then this is a must-see.
