i think this could be useful for the people who is not totally sure about spend their money in this movie, it has their good and bad points, but generally is a great movie, so please, let’s show them that “An Hispanic story” can be as good as any other one, or even better!.
My husband and I went to see this today, and we can totally back up and agree with every single point made here, plus a few extra. It’s a fantastic movie, and every show so far has sold out in our local theater for GOOD DAMN REASON. My husband is not a theater person, and he was like that was so good I’d see it in theaters again. Which is huge.
It’s cute, it’s funny, and it has some absolutely beautiful messages. Hell, that cute chunky art style even has in-story explanation. And I’m sorry, but I have to emphasize the fact of strong female characters! Strong female characters with human flaws that don’t detract from their strength and functionality! STRONG WOC THAT HOLD THEIR OWN WITH THE MEN THEY ARE CAST WITH.
Please, PLEASE. If you have the money to go see it in theaters, please do. If you don’t, spread the word about it anyway until it hits more affordable avenues. Blow this baby out of the water, let’s prove to Hollywood that well-developed stories about cultures that aren’t honky white bread UScentric bullshit more than belong on the big and small screens. Because representation matters, and eventually they will get that through their thick fucking skulls.
