Critic Reviews for Sueno
Has a warm affection for its music and thoughtful performances from leads John Leguizamo and Elizabeth Pena.
A sweet-natured film, steeped in richly varied and seductive Latin music.
Though the film is crammed with music -- the soundtrack is stellar -- the production numbers fall completely flat, leaving you to pine for the over-caffeinated touch of Baz Luhrmann.
So good-natured and well-intentioned (showcasing as it does up-and-coming Latino bands) that it's tempting to overlook its significant narrative flaws.
...recycles every cliche from the Purple Rain/Crossover Dreams playbook, to tepid effect.
Audience Reviews for Sueno
I was surprised that John Leguizamo was in this at first because it was a TV movie, but it was pretty good.
bah. it was torturous at times. not cute enough. not charming enough. not stylized enough. it tries on all fronts, but comes across as a wannabe romantic comedy musical but fails on all three. decent cast, and interesting concept but so poorly executed. it was an attempt to make an ethnic movie for dumb Americans and it's just dumb. The Taco Bell of Mexican cinema.
