Mexican director Issa López's show business-themed comedy drama Casi Divas (Road to Fame) follows the adventures of four aspiring actresses clamoring for a coveted part in a hotshot producer's new movie. The producer in question launches a national talent search to find his dream actress, which pits the quartet of hopefuls in a spate of intense competition against one another -- despite the rumor that the producer's girlfriend will land the part by default. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The "casi" in Casi Divas translates to "almost," and it's an appropriate word for the film as a whole."
‑ Ian Buckwalter, NPR
"With a surrogate for every demographic and a heroine for every taste, Casi Divas jiggles and jokes its way around as many Mexican box-office bases as possible."
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"The film's girl-to-girl comedy far outshines its frequent bursts of melodrama, two-dimensional male characters (especially Julio Bracho as the producer of the talent show) and surprising lack of suspense over who will win the contest."
‑ Steve Ramos, Boxoffice Magazine
"Full of enthusiasm but short on wit or self-awareness, Casi Divas is pretty weak as satire."
‑ Paul Schrodt, Slant Magazine
"A shrill and gaudy comedy about the quest for celebrity."
‑ Rene Rodriguez, Miami Herald
"[A] gloriously flamboyant comedic extravaganza."
‑ Ronnie Scheib, Variety
"Mildly engaging, wickedly funny and peppy with a lively ensemble cast, but it could have used a stronger dose of imagination, satirical bite and wit."
‑ Avi Offer, NYC Movie Guru
"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."
‑ Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
"A none-too-clever but hustling-to-please Mexican comedy."
‑ Nick Pinkerton, Village Voice
"A funny television satire and heartening viewing experience that has personal lessons in courage as well as much needed commentary on US/Mexican border relations."
‑ Ron Wilkinson, Monsters and Critics
