From Prada to Nada Reviews
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."
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.
The movie was good and had a very important story which is don't forget where you come from and value your family always because you never know when you will need them. The acting was the low-point of this film since it didn't have any experience actors and to tell the truth this was more of a comedy than anything else.
A Latina spin on Jane Austen's "Sense and Sensibility," where two spoiled sisters who have been left penniless after their father's sudden death are forced to move in with their estranged aunt in East Los Angeles.
This movie spends so much time stressing how much the sisters, lives have changed that no time is left to build the romantic storylines, necessary to make the ending realistic.
