Movie Info

Ana Maria in Novela Land is the fun-filled story of how one super fan, Ana Maria, switches places with her favorite telenovela star, Ariana Tomosa. Starring EDY GANEM (Devious Maids), in a breakout, dual role as both Ana Maria and Ariana Tomosa, the film centers around Ana Maria, a typical 20-something who is living life on her own terms but frustrating her family and friends all the while doing so. As she journeys inside a world of seemingly limitless opportunities in "Novela Land," things get heated during a love affair with a wealthy businessman and his younger, sexy son. Meanwhile, Ariana is forced to deal with the harsh realities of living in Los Angeles with an over-protective but loving family. As each of these women navigate their new lives, they come to the realization that love and true faith in themselves is all they really needed to have the life they dreamed of. (C) Fluency Studios

Critic Reviews for Ana Maria in Novela Land

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (3)

This switching-places comedy warmly and trenchantly sends up the telenovela genre's swooning melodrama and oversexed-but-prudish contradictions.

Top Critic

A lightly amusing comedy about an avid fan who trades places with the star of a popular telenova.

Top Critic

The script, co-written by director Georgina Garcia Riedel and Jose Nestor Marquez, plays like a first draft that misses out on comic opportunities.

February 26, 2015 | Full Review…

Let me start off by saying that Ana Maria in Novela Land is silly, but intentionally so-and that self-awareness is part of its charm.

November 8, 2018 | Full Review…

The comedy is never all that funny, and some scenes fall noticeably flat, either because the cast isn't strong enough, or because the production as a whole lacks polish.

March 2, 2015 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

[Edy Ganem] plays the parts so well, switching accents and physicality between a laidback young woman and the caricature of the high maintenance drama starlet, it was difficult to believe she was the same actress.
