Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Here's a 'steamy' soap opera that's never very steamy, and if you set your expectations low, this movie is only too happy to meet them."
‑ Jeff Shannon, Seattle Times
"Debut director Ricardo de Montreuil only cares about filming pretty people in the most hackneyed positions imaginable."
‑ John Monaghan, Detroit Free Press
"With one-dimensional characters stuck in a plot that gives them nothing noteworthy to do, only the most superficial aspects remain to be admired: the attractive cast, their attractive clothes and the attractive houses in which they live."
‑ Marc Mohan, Oregonian
"90 minutes of wheezing emotional flare-ups, played with such straight-faced sobriety that I wanted to slap these people and tell them all to lighten up"
‑ Jay Antani, I.E. Weekly
"It's a gorgeously mounted soap, with enough third-act surprises to justify its reputation (it was a huge hit in Latin America)."
‑ Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel
"A stylish soap opera that casts cultural dramas as melodrama."
‑ Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post
"Stars actors from all over South America and was shot in Chile by a Peruvian director, yet what it most closely resembles is a Mexican soap opera."
‑ Eric D. Snider, EricDSnider.com
"La Mujer de Mi Hermano neither looks nor feels like the Mexican telenovela that it fundamentally is. That makes the movie interesting. More interesting than the sudsy story it tells, anyway."
‑ Bob Strauss, Los Angeles Daily News
"Soapy, sappy, silly and sluggish, La Mujer de Mi Hermano (My Brother's Wife) is one of those issue movies that wants to cram every hot topic it can think of into a melodramatic situation."
‑ Tom Long, Detroit News
"Brisk, shallow, highly condensed version of a telenovela."
‑ Justine Elias, Boston Globe
"if a movie ever needed a gratuitous shot of a breast or a bare a** it's La Mujer de Mi Hermano"
‑ Pete Croatto, Filmcritic.com
"Plays like a season worth of telenovela episodes."
‑ Scott Von Doviak, Fort Worth Star-Telegram/DFW.com
