From Prada to Nada Reviews

April 3, 2019
Everything about this cheery sit-com-type Jane Austen-meets Cinderella rom com is utterly predictable.

a predictable film that could have benefited from a little more thought and perhaps less reliance on clichs.

There is nothing new in this film at all.

I'd hate to learn the producers struggled to amp the ethnicity of the actresses when that precious time clearly should've been devoted to reworking a wheezy, clumsy script.

It's smarter than you think it's going to be based on its idiotic title and, more importantly, consistently gets by on its good-natured and warm-hearted charms.

... a bit awkward and self-conscious.

Hear that funny swooshing noise? That's the sound of Jane Austen spinning in her grave over From Prada To Nada.

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

While this is no Clueless, to be sure, it's also, thankfully, no Born in East L.A.

Jane Austen update with Latino twist offers laughs, romance.

There's something crassly disingenuous about the movie's blatant demographic pandering (hooray for immigration-panic jokes!) and half-a--ed condemnation of gluttony.

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.

As modern updates of classic Jane Austen novels go, From Prada to Nada is no Clueless.
January 30, 2011
This romantic comedy suffers from a pervasive sitcom-level sense of humor and spotty performances.
January 28, 2011
A rueful, occasionally touching and entirely predictable romantic comedy with a terrible title.

For a film ostensibly about the importance of finding a little spice and flavor in your life, From Prada to Nada is surprisingly bland.

A predictable but pleasant comedy.
