      Kim Newman Empire Magazine This is a satisfying, spicy little picture. Rated: 3/5 Dec 30, 2006 Full Review Geoff Andrew Time Out Touching, charming and very engagingly played, it offers perceptive insights into LA Latino culture as well as solid, slightly old-fashioned entertainment. Sep 28, 2006 Full Review Peter Debruge Premiere Magazine An unexpected self-portrait from a town that loves to tell stories about itself, often to the exclusion of the countless equally deserving dramas unfolding just a few blocks away. Rated: 3.5/4 Sep 23, 2006 Full Review Mattie Lucas The Dispatch (Lexington, NC) A quiet joy of a film - a rare gem. Rated: 3.5/4 Jun 6, 2019 Full Review Michael Dequina TheMovieReport.com This celebrated Sundance prizewinner doesn't look quite so special. Actually, it seems Very Special--as in one of those Very Special Episodes of an ongoing television series. Rated: 2.5/4 Aug 25, 2007 Full Review David Noh Film Journal International The writing is not always as developed as one would wish it, but this seems almost paltry in light of the dramatic truth and rivetingly real performances which are elicited.

      Fabiola G As a Mexican born in America this is the most realistic thing I've ever seen. A lot of my friends did become pregnant before we turned eighteen. Many of us had quinceañera parties. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Audience Member A stereotype of what happens in Latino culture. Do yourself a favor and watch Blood In, Blood Out instead. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review william s What a pleasant,fun and gentle look at something I knew very little of.....welcomed surprise. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Great movie showing the echo park of Los Angeles area that I used to live for a few years. Good funny wild movie. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Audience Member The acting came across as amateur The screenplay was shoddy and made me feel like I was watching a poorly crafted high school documentary. The ending was anticlimactic and had no real positive resolution. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Frances H Gentle little family drama with the message of familial love and tolerant understanding. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/14/13 Full Review Read all reviews
