Four ambitious and beautiful young women. From four very different corners of Mexico. Just like hundreds of others, they are caught up in the frenzy that sweeps the nation when Alejandro Mateos (Julio Bracho), one of the country's most powerful producers, dreams up a nationwide talent search to cast the lead in his next big movie. But all this is news to Alejandro's on-again, off-again lover, Eva Gallardo (Patricia Llaca) , a diva of epic proportions, who expected to get the part. While Eva schemes to nail down the role, our four leads begin their own journey on the road to fame. Written by

Hello! First, let me say that thanks to Issa Lopez, Warner Brothers Pictures performed its first production in Mexico when they bought "Efectos Secundarios". And I think that is something that we must recognize all Mexicans.
Replying the previous comment, I think it is extremely illogical that Issa Lopez, has offended the Mexicans when she made "Casi Divas" and even more so with the fact that she is a woman and Mexican. Therefore, I don't understand the aim from comments like...
"So Issa ridicules the majority of women and paints as many people abroad think that Mexico is, a place of marginalized, uneducated, naive and corrupt and useless mentally." The film industry in our country is in progress, the Mexican film has had great successes and recognition thanks to people like Issa Lopez, who has put the name of Mexico in the film industry.
Casi Divas, it's a comedy that shows us a very big reality. Yes, it is a reality. It's a movie, and like all movies, can't be displayed exactly as things are, you have to bring a touch of humor, drama, surprise,etc. that otherwise, would be somewhat boring. And I should mention that this is the second production in Mexico at Columbia Pictures, another merit for Issa Lopez, who also participated in "Niñas Mal", which was the first production at Columbia Pictures in our country.
Beyond being a comedy, Casi Divas gives us a glance or a reminder of what happens in Cd. Juarez with the endless killings of women, discrimination or living Indians of different ethnicities in our country, and why not, also the rejection suffered by people with different preferences or changes in their sexuality, corruption of the rich and powerful. Perhaps it isn't something that we can feel proud, but it's a reality that we live and we can see reflected in a film that has been wrote years ago and now it's a dream come true from Issa Lopez.
To me, this film is excellent and is not for ridicule anyone, and we didn't see us like marginalized, uneducated, naive, corrupt and useless mentally. As previously mentioned.
Issa Lopez Thank you for this work. We hope more and more success with your future projects.
You see and you get it .... Issa Lopez = the best Mexican film maker CONGRATULATIONS
