Pulling Strings Reviews

The movie boasts an understated sweetness, largely fueled by Camil's movie-star charms. He's the kind of performer who doesn't have to work hard to win over an audience; he is instantly likable. In a movie like this, that's money in the bank.

This entertaining crossover vehicle for Mexican star Jaime Camil sets a familiar love story to a mariachi beat.

Serving mostly as a strong calling card for star Jaime Camil, the film has an appealingly loose, slightly ramshackle charm.

This bilingual romantic comedy is overly long and has a paper-thin plot, but it's too sweet-natured to dislike.
