Trivia

John Burnett (Kris Kristofferson) and Rafael (Chayanne) share a scene where they discuss Rafael's mother writing a song. Burnett responds quickly with the line, "You're not gonna sing it, are ya?" Rafael laughs it off. This was an off-set joke considering that Chayanne has been a popular Latin singer since he was ten years of age. See more »

Its definitely not as bad as the ratings
25 March 2007 | by sharatgoswamiSee all my reviews

I don't get it. Why does this movie have so low a rating. I mean i realize its not the greatest ever, but its certainly not a 4 pointer either. It deserves at least a 7 or a 7.5 Some might even give it 8. This definitely one of those cases where the IMDb rating is certainly not correct. In my opinion.

The dancing and music are of course very good. To see Chayanne do his stuff is like magic. He shows you how the music leads him. But even the dialogs are so great, people somehow tend to miss that. A real pity. It could be better no doubt, but it certainly isn't a bad movie. So why the ridiculously low rating.
