I love this movie
9 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Crazy From The Heart is one of my all time favorite movies. I love the scene when Christine and Ruben sing together at the beach. I read somewhere that this scene was impromptu. The story is heart warming and sincere. Ruben Blades was fantastic in this film and so believable that even I fell in love with his character. This movie touches on some unfortunate social problems. Who does not cheer for the Grandfather when you know that he was the one who burned the billboard? All of us should be so brave to stand up for our beliefs. Anyway it is a sweet love story that makes you feel good. I wanted to buy this movie but I found out that it is not available on VHS or DVD to purchase. After reading the other reviews I think there a lot of us that would like to be able to buy the movie. It is one of those movies that I could watch over and over.
