Storyline

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 Sony Pictures Entertainment

A satire of what we know as Mexican
1 May 2008 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

Im from Ciudad Juarez, the place where Catalina lives (where women are killed O_o).

It is true that all the characters are in the stereotype of each place, Guadalajara, Oaxaca, Ciudad Juarez, Nezahualcóyotl. But, in fact, almost everything in the movie is stereotyped: Clothes, what happens in the TV studios, our government, and lots more.

The accent of the girl from Juarez was TOTALLY FALSE. I was thinking "Who the H*ll in Juarez speaks like that???". It is also fun to see that all the city is transformed into a complete desert, without any building O_o. There are A LOT of places that represents wonderfully the city, and Issa López used some scrubs, desert, sand and cactus instead (I haven't seen a real cactus in the city... oh! I did! there was one of 3" tall in an office)

The movie goes directly to all the Mexican discriminated minorities: homosexuals, natives, poor, etcetera. If we try to see the movie as the identical copy of the reality, it will surely fail.

BUT, I as a Mexican had a lot of fun watching at this movie. This is because, even though it is stereotyped, we can recognize some national flaws. We need to recognize that not all the movies have to be educational. This is, (even if we like or not) a way Mexicans can laugh a little about their own problems, in which a catharsis can be done, and we can relief all our stressed society
