Hey dad, what was so important you had to drag me over here?
Aye, Selena we have a problem. And I don't know where to start. It's Yolanda.
We started to get complaints from fans who had sent money to the fan club and had received nothing. Not a picture, nada. Then I found out she had a problem with her previous employer.

I don't know much about the real Selena, so I don't know how much of the movie was fact and what was fiction. But even if this movie wasn't based on a real singing superstar, it would have been great to watch anyway.
Jennifer Lopez is stunning in every way as Selena. She hits all the right chords as a teenager, a woman in love, a dutiful daughter and sister, and a singer adored by legions of fans. And she loved everyone of them right back. The actors playing her family are all great, too (especially her father). Ms. Lopez also has a sweet, natural chemistry with Jon Seda as Chris. Their relationship is so real because they were friends first...friends who fell in love.
Ms. Lopez also does a great job lip-synching Selena's songs, and the ending will bring tears to your eyes. A must see!
