Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Has a warm affection for its music and thoughtful performances from leads John Leguizamo and Elizabeth Pena."
‑ Michael Rechtshaffen, Hollywood Reporter
"Though the film is crammed with music -- the soundtrack is stellar -- the production numbers fall completely flat, leaving you to pine for the over-caffeinated touch of Baz Luhrmann."
‑ Ernest Hardy, L.A. Weekly
"Refreshingly old-fashioned."
‑ Bridget Byrne, Boxoffice Magazine
"Sings a lovely tune but chokes on its own banal lyrics."
‑ Justin Chang, Variety
"So good-natured and well-intentioned (showcasing as it does up-and-coming Latino bands) that it's tempting to overlook its significant narrative flaws."
‑ Peter Canavese, Groucho Reviews
"A sweet-natured film, steeped in richly varied and seductive Latin music."
‑ Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
"...recycles every cliche from the Purple Rain/Crossover Dreams playbook, to tepid effect."
‑ Andy Klein, Los Angeles CityBeat
