The book that Lorena picks up off of Papi's nightstand when she enters his bedroom is '100 Love Sonnets / Cien sonetos de amor', a book by Pablo Neruda, bilingual edition. See more »


When Cici rips off the bottom of Lorena's skirt, it's obvious Lorena's skirt has already been pre-cut where it's being torn off. See more »


Miss Mexico: [at Beauty Pageant] I believe beauty does come from within. But why not let your beauty show on the outside and share it with the whole world? If you got it, flaunt it. And like the great Daisy Fuentes said, "We must all express our salsa gene because it allows us to be as beautiful as we are." Muchas gracias.
Costas Delgado: Thank you, Miss Mexico. Ah, Daisy Fuentes: truly a voice of our generation.

Watch it twice--it gets better.
14 October 2003 | by (Hollister, CA) – See all my reviews

I was attracted to this movie after seeing Sofia Vergara on one of the late night talk shows. Anyway, after watching her interview, "Chasing Papi" became a must see, but I didn't actually see it until this week when it hit Pay-per-View.

I have to admit that the first time I watched it I was a bit dismayed that the plot seemed thin, but being that virtually every scene involved Sofia, I really didn't care. You can look at her a thousand times and each time you will will see something new that makes her appear even more beautiful.

So naturally I watched the movie again, and this time I noticed that the movie flowed a bit better and that the plot wasn't as thin as I originally thought it was. Couple that with Sofia looking better than in the first viewing, and I can only surmise that this movie will get BETTER with each repeated viewing.

I know what my schedule is like for the rest of the year!
