  • Summary: Four ambitious and beautiful young women. From four very different worlds. Just like hundreds of others, they are caught up in the frenzy that sweeps the nation when Alejandro Mateos, one of the country's most powerful producers, dreams up a nationwide talent search to cast the lead in his next big movie. But all this is news to Alejandro's on-again, off-again lover, Eva Gallardo, a diva of epic proportions, who expected to get the part. While Eva schemes to nail down the role, our four leads begin their own journey on the road to fame. (Sony Pictures Releasing) Expand

  1. A comedy with just the right blend of satire, social comment, myriad complications, romance and heart-tugging to give it some deft shading and variety.
  2. Reviewed by: Ronnie Scheib
    Gloriously flamboyant comedic extravaganza, fuses soap opera and "American Idol"-type competition, following four wildly different women vying for the star role in a feature filmization of a popular telenovela.
  3. An enjoyable spoof of Mexican soap operas and the entertainment business itself. The film doesn't ask to be taken seriously but if you absolutely insist, there is pointed commentary about the deep divisions within that society over skin color, gender politics and social backgrounds.
  4. As the film picks up speed it also accrues a socially progressive agenda. If only this were half as well developed as the female leads.
  5. 50
    A shrill and gaudy comedy about the quest for celebrity.
  6. Reviewed by: Nick Pinkerton
    A none-too-clever but hustling-to-please Mexican comedy.
  7. In using the urban poor and the queer community as punch lines, Casi Divas ultimately succumbs to its own criticism.

    An original story of 4 different girls with a same goal, who will be the next Diva in the new "Novela" ? is pretty funny and you should go to see it. Expand

    I found the production to be below par, the acting too extreme and the story too silly and melodramatic. The score is dreadful. It
