  1. The movie is very small in scale, but the performances are appealing and Fernandez's screenplay casts an interesting light on the main characters' self-images as Latina women.
  2. Consistently entertaining and offers some sharp observations of the Latino experience.
  3. Reviewed by: Hollis Chacona
    With wonderful music, interesting characters, and lots of laughter, this picture feels much bigger than it really is.
  4. 50
    The lawyer is marvelously played by Evelina Fernandez, who wrote the screenplay based on her play.
  5. 50
    Chock-full of feisty-frank go-girl sextalk speculating on white guys' underplayable size.
  6. Reviewed by: David Chute
    There are surprising grace notes in all the performances, and familiar, friendly faces pop up in supporting roles.
  7. It is a traffic jam of broken hearts, fluxing racial identities and deplorable outfits that has everything but a salsa overhaul of "I Will Survive."
