  • It's just predictable rom-com fare in need of a lot more spice.

    February 11, 2011 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • The broad humour and cultural caricatures in the film's opening moments will be especially dispiriting to any English literature professors in the audience.

    February 10, 2011 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • If the effort to shoehorn Austen's social commentary into a modern context sometimes seems nonsensical or forced, the actors-especially now-grown Spy Kid Vega-have charm to spare.

    February 2, 2011 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • There's something crassly disingenuous about the movie's blatant demographic pandering (hooray for immigration-panic jokes!) and half-a--ed condemnation of gluttony.

    January 31, 2011 | Full Review…
  • Simply put, From Prada To Nada is Sense And Sensibility For Dummies, as set in modern-day Los Angeles.

  • The regrettably titled From Prada to Nada has more in common with a slapped-together TV movie than a timeless comedy of manners.

    Cast: Camilla Belle, Alexa Vega, Wilmer Valderrama, Nicholas D'Agosto, April Bowlby, Kuno Becker, Adriana Barraza, Pablo Cruz, Karla Souza, Alexis Ayala 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."

    I thought that this was cute. And when did Wilmer Valderrama grow up to be such a hottie? hmmmm. Anyway, not the best, but definitely enjoyable enough.

    The movie as Jane Austen's "Sense and Sensibility," Latino spinoff doesn't work but if we see it as a stand alone movie it's a little better I'm still not saying the movie is good it feels like cardboard everything is so fake and without substance everything the story, the characters but it is still watchable and a little merit for that it had a lot of star power even that it didn't went too far. There are pros with the movie as far themes go that differ from the usual american Rom-Com Hollywood crap this had romance but emphasized relationships and family values.It deals with education ambition and obstacles for bettering their lives, Everyone seemed real and life like. I cared a great deal about all of the people involved and what happens to them. Unlike other films coming from the genre, this film not only has witty dialog and cleverness without being too sentimental but it takes on the subject of the Hispanic society with just the right touch. The actors involved, of course, have a lot to do with the making of a good film and overall, the actors are perfect for their roles, each one of them bringing a dose of reality to the screen. 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.
