An entertaining fluffy popcorn comedy with plenty of eye candy for the guys and gals.

[T]he flavor is Latino, but the result is like salsa flavored cotton candy.

If you're in the mood for a couple of hours of carefree fun, Chasing Papi is well worth chasing down.

The only place you're likely to find such shrill and whitewashed caricatures is in the elitist pages of Hola!

I've seen episodes of The Love Boat with more emotional investment and involvement from the characters than this ...

It's like watching Univision or Telemundo on the big screen.

The fun in this concept was already congealed on the page and the film's forced antics are painful and embarrassing to women, Latins, everyone.

A simple-minded mishmash that could more aptly be called Chasing Pap.

So resoundingly awful, there may be grounds to sue for mental suffering.

The whole thing is loud and unfunny, not showing off anyone to good advantage.

A romantic comedy that is sexy without being gratuitous, funny without being crude, and mercifully free of on-screen Latino stereotypes such as chambermaids and troubled immigrants.
| Original Score: 3/4

It's the engaging performances of Jaci Velasquez, Roselyn Sanchez and Sofia Vergara, as well as a few humorous Latin colloquialisms, that turn an otherwise inane script into a cute confection of a film.

[Verastegui] seems to have confused acting in a motion picture with posing for an 8x10 glossy.

A thin attempt at comedy and a corny take on the buddy movie.

Chiquita Banana and the Frito Bandito were subtle compared to the caricatures of Latino culture in this movie.

This much-too-complex comedy carries only a few chuckles.

Judging by Paul Rodriguez's brief cameo as a mincing beauty-pageant director, one senses that the movie is more interested in affirming lazy stereotypes than overthrowing them.

Long hair, long legs and a splashy soundtrack can't save Chasing Papi from its contrived plot, tired jokes and retro gender politics.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
April 17, 2003
There's a lot of fluff in this comedy, but it's mostly harmless fluff. Yes, there are times that the women seem objectified, but they also have moments of empowerment to balance the scales.
