Storyline

When their dad dies on his 55th birthday, Beverley Hills sisters, Mary and Nora, find themselves destitute, forced by a grasping sister-in-law to move in with their aunt in East L.A. Mary, the younger sister, is mortified: spoiled by her dad, ignorant of Spanish, scared of the vatos. Her sister convinces her to finish college, and she promptly decides that one of her T.A.s will be her ticket back to Rodeo Drive. Elder sister Nora, a law student, gets a job as a legal intern, and Edward, her supervisor, the brother of the grasping sister-in-law, promptly falls for her. Slowly, the sisters realize what a rich place the barrio is at the same time that they get bruised in the contact sport of love. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Trivia

Mary states the the 'birds of paradise' flower is the state flower of California during the Independence Day party. This is incorrect, however the 'birds of paradise' is the official flower of the city of Los Angeles, where the movie takes place. See more »

Goofs

The cast on Mary's leg switches from one leg to the other, from when she is wheeled into the house and when she and Nora are in their bedroom then back to the original leg. The reason why the cast on Mary's leg appears to switch from one leg to another is because the initial camera angle in the bedroom is pointed at the mirror (frame around the image), thus causing the cast to appear to be on Mary's left leg. On the next camera angle, it is pointed directly at Mary so it shows the cast to be on the right leg. See more »

From Prada to Nada: a (more than you could expect) sophisticated comedy.
2 May 2016 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

Don't let the awful movie's title fool you (just as it fooled me): it's a test. You have to pass the same exam most characters in the present movie had to: acknowledge possible different ways to be bright, smart and beautiful other than our common (american-western-european) way.

Fina Torres, Luis Alfaro and Craig Fernandez (in this exact order, I guess) added a lot of wit to Jane Austen's novel (I assume that you have read 'Sense and Sensibility'), mainly under the form of spicy, meaningful and very good lines.

It's a classic, so I won't comment the plot, I'd just like you to know that this is a very sophisticated comedy and that I would be really surprised if watching it would let you down.
