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.
The part in the movie when Chris and Selena are walking on the pier together, was shot in Aransas Pass, Texas at an old company called "Gulf King". See more »
When Selena's father is teaching them how to play instruments when they are young, he tries to play the drums but Hen falls. When he falls, he lands on a pillow, but in the next shot, the pillow is gone. 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.
