wonderful spoof
20 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I found this one of the best movie I ever saw. The actress was absolutely marvelous. I enjoyed Pedro Armendariz Jr as well as I did his dad in the old movies. Great piece of acting and thoroughly enjoyable. I was capture from the beginning and delighted all through the movie. It may have helped that I am somewhat familiar with Mexican language and Mexico. I recommend this movie to those who care to be entertained. Rivals "Singing in the Rain" with Gene Kelly. The scene of singing in the rain was not expected and was a delightful surprise. Please find a was to view this work. Maria Rojo is especially fun in her portrayal of the open heart. Bravo for the director.
