Mary Fiore is San Francisco's most successful supplier of romance and glamor. She knows all the tricks. She knows all the rules. But then she breaks the most important rule of all: she falls in love with the groom.
When 'Jennifer Lopez' signed on to be Selena, she expected to be providing her own vocals. But it was felt that since the movie would be released so soon after Selena's death her fans would not approve of hearing any voice other than hers. So Lopez was coached to lip-sync instead of being provided the vocal coaching she expected. See more »

Jennifer Lopez proved that she was a high-class actress with this true story of the Tejano Superstar whose life was cut short by a disgruntled employee. Lopez shines and Edward James Olmos is super (as usual) as her tough-nosed father. The rest of the cast is adequate, but the show is shared between Lopez and Olmos. The screenplay is a little sappy, but fine overall. Director Gregory Nava is always focused and this keeps the film interesting throughout. A fine film all the way. 4 stars out of 5.
