During the beauty saloon scene Selena states that they were flying out to Los Angeles for the Grammys. However the Grammys that were depicted in the film did not take place in Los Angeles. Selena won her Grammy at the 36th Annual Grammy Awards which was held in New York City. See more »
I only sat down to watch this movie because I smelled sex appeal. Probably before the movie started I could not tell you which was Jennifer and which was Selena. But by the end of the movie I was an emotional basket case.
The movie itself is simple and basic. It is innocent and honest and you kind of think to yourself that SELENA feels like a TV movie although the acting is solid. But unlike any TV movie something happens -- the movie jells -- and the end hits you as sudden and hard as a lightning strike.
SELENA and MAN IN THE MOON are the only two movies that make my eyes water just by thinking of them.
