Has a warm affection for its music and thoughtful performances from leads John Leguizamo and Elizabeth Pena.

Ernest Hardy
L.A. Weekly

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.

Bridget Byrne
Boxoffice Magazine

Refreshingly old-fashioned.

Sings a lovely tune but chokes on its own banal lyrics.

Groucho Reviews

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.

Kevin Thomas
Los Angeles Times

A sweet-natured film, steeped in richly varied and seductive Latin music.

...recycles every cliche from the Purple Rain/Crossover Dreams playbook, to tepid effect.
