From Prada to Nada is a modern twist on Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility, is a new romantic comedy starring Camilla Belle, Alexa Vega, Wilmer Valderrama, with Kuno Becker and Academy Award (R) nominee Adriana Barraza (Babel, Actress in a Supporting Role, 2006). It's a whimsical fish-out-of-water story of two spoiled sisters: Nora (Camilla Belle), a law student, and Mary (Alexa Vega), an undergrad party girl, living with their father in a luxurious mansion in Beverly Hills. Mary has become so "90210" she refuses to admit she is of Mexican descent. When dad suddenly passes… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's just predictable rom-com fare in need of a lot more spice."
‑ Jennie Punter, Globe and Mail
"There's something crassly disingenuous about the movie's blatant demographic pandering (hooray for immigration-panic jokes!) and half-a--ed condemnation of gluttony."
‑ Aaron Hillis, Village Voice
"a predictable film that could have benefited from a little more thought and perhaps less reliance on clichés."
‑ James Luxford, The National
"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."
‑ Dave White,
"While this is no Clueless, to be sure, it's also, thankfully, no Born in East L.A."
‑ Marc Savlov, Austin Chronicle
"The broad humour and cultural caricatures in the film's opening moments will be especially dispiriting to any English literature professors in the audience."
‑ Jason Anderson, Toronto Star
"Simply put, From Prada To Nada is Sense And Sensibility For Dummies, as set in modern-day Los Angeles."
‑ Tasha Robinson, AV Club
"There is nothing new in this film at all."
‑ Grae Drake,
"... a bit awkward and self-conscious."
‑ Jim Lane, Sacramento News & Review
"Jane Austen update with Latino twist offers laughs, romance."
‑ Melissa Camacho, Common Sense Media
"If the effort to shoehorn Austen's social commentary into a modern context sometimes seems nonsensical or forced, the actors-especially now-grown Spy Kid Vega-have charm to spare."
‑ Ben Kenigsberg, Time Out New York
"The regrettably titled From Prada to Nada has more in common with a slapped-together TV movie than a timeless comedy of manners."
‑ Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times
"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."
‑ Brian Orndorf,
"Hear that funny swooshing noise? That's the sound of Jane Austen spinning in her grave over From Prada To Nada."
‑ Liz Braun, Jam! Movies
"This romantic comedy suffers from a pervasive sitcom-level sense of humor and spotty performances."
‑ Tim Grierson, Screen International
