Quotes

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.

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
