Trivia

Goofs

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 »

Quotes

Beauty Pageant Judge: [during Beauty Pageant] How would you respond to those who say: a beauty contest such as this does more for the objectification of women, rather than women's rights?
Lorena: I say, what better way to show that a woman can be both beautiful and intelligent? In fact, if chosen, I plan to propose that all beauty contestants are required to take entrance exams.
Miss Mexico: [mumbling] What the hell is she talking about?

Fun and playful movie - NOT to be taken seriously!!!
25 January 2004 | by (Tampa) – See all my reviews

I've read some the reviews that people made in regards to this movie and all I can say is take it easy - this movie DOES NOT deplict the average latino but it does reflect a funny view to the Casanova that is actually a nice guy who actually falls for 3 different ladies.

If this movie was made with pure white/anglo/european actors and it was called Chasing Stud - I'm sure the anglo community wouldn't be so agitated by the flick.

In the DVD the director mentioned that that she wanted to capture the goofy and fun-loving interaction from the movies in the 60's like What's Up Doc with Barbara Stresan and she succeeded with this movie.

As a latino - I do not find this movie at all offensive to my latin culture (Puerto Rican/Colombian) and everyone (family/friends)I talked to about this movie found it to be cute and funny.

So, sit back, watch, crack up and enjoy the movie!!!!1
