Mexico
15 January 2007 | by jml7403See all my reviews

This movie was wonderful. I have watched it over and over. The best part started the minute they drove into Mexico and that music started. My husband assured me that you don't REALLY hear music the minute you arrive in Mexico, but it worked for me!! A+++ I fell in love with Ruben Blades, and Christine Lahti is always graceful, beautiful and a lady. (Loved her in Swingshift) I enjoyed how she finally realized what is important in a relationship. She really told off the school board! When he talked to her in the back of the truck with all the candles lit was so romantic, he could have talked me into marrying him too! All and all this was an amazing movie. I can believe it was a made-for-TV movie!
