Storyline

The ultimate rebel Adela boasts three tattoos, a body piercing and a recent arrest for alleged indecent behavior. Petrified that his beloved daughter will spoil his chances of becoming the next governor of Mexico City, Adela's father has enrolled her in the only remaining charm school for young ladies in the city. Maca Ribera guarantees that her school can turn any young girl into a "domestic goddess" ... that is until she meets Adela. The two determined women face-off in a battle of wills that turns the school and its colorful bunch of school-mates upside down when Maca attempts to transform the irreverent Adela into a suitable First Daughter.

Bad Girls,Worst Actress
1 December 2010 | by (Monterrey,Mexico) – See all my reviews

A very,very repeated formula of intern girls and their adventures,this time in a kind of academy for marriageable middle-upper class girls which has the purpose of educate them in order to get the supreme happiness which according with this film only they can get it in the perfect harmony of the marriage and of course the main role of women should always be at the service of their men so we have the rebellious one(Martha Higareda), the naive(Maria Aura),the Intellectual(Camila Sodi),the Snob(Alejandra Adame) and the gay one(Ximena Sariñana)all of them in some way obliged to attend this train for their own family, because they in their eagerness of give them all the material values did not have the time to teach this "behavior model" and now entrust this task to Blanca Guerra, an old rebel redeemed, she hide herself to smoke and has a tattoo.

Fernando Sariñana tried very hard to make believable a low class environment in the film Amarte Duele(2002) with doubtful result(in that time well supported for very good actors ) this time Seems to be very unreal and the actress don't support him nothing at all, the complete movie develops in abrupt way, like Martha Higareda nude,especially at the end of it someone has the impression that scriptwriter don't know how to solve the excesses caused by the rebellious Higareda and they did in so ridiculous way,tedious and unconvincing in order to get the classic happy ending undoubtedly the poorest work of the Irregular Sariñana
