Great movie!
29 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Mambo Cafe did what it was supposed to, which was to introduce Latin singer and actress Thalia to a new audience. Thalia is one of Mexico's biggest star. Her albums and soap operas has been sold in many different countries. Thalia gave a great performance, for someone who was barely learning the English language.The made for TV movie has a good plot to keep you attached to your seat. Mambo Cafe is funny and entertaining. I would like to see Thalia in more movies, I think she has great potential. Paul Rodriguez gives the performance that he is known for. His great comedic timing will keep you laughing. Mambo Cafe also introduced actor Rick Gonzalez. Gonzalez in known for his work in The Rookie, Old School, War of the Worlds, and in the upcoming films Pulse and First Snow.
