We have to be more Mexican than the Mexicans and more American than the Americans, both at the same time! It's exhausting!

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.
