At the end of the film, when archive footage of Selena Quintanilla-Perez is shown, there are shots of fans mourning her and holding pictures of the actual Selena Quintanilla-Perez. See more »
At the beginning Selena takes off her jacket during the Disco Medley and in the real concert she doesn't take it off until she starts singing in Spanish. See more »
[after Selena's death, sobs on the phone with a gun to her head]
I can't put the gun down! Because I'm ashamed of what I've done! I don't deserve to live! Look at what I've done to my best friend! I want to talk to my mother!

On the Superstation and TNT versions, the scene where Selena sings "No Me Queda Mas" is extended, as is the scene where she sings "Si Una Vez". On all television showings, the word "Damn" is edited out of the scene where Abraham brings home the music equipment. See more »
Not expecting to enjoy this movie, I was very pleasantly surprised. Jennifer Lopez, Edward Olmos and the rest of the ensemble cast do a marvelous job in bringing the close-knit Quintanilla family to life. The screenwriters and director skillfully lead the viewer from the father's failed attempts at rock 'n roll in the early 60s through Selena's childhood and her eventual rocket to the top of the Tejano music charts as a young woman. Thankfully her murder is not addressed as a major plot item, its almost irrelevant. And the concert scenes are fantastic. Its Selena's voice and Lopez does an incredible job. Definitely worth a rental regardless of your musical tastes.
