Storyline

Kata has lived her first fifteen years believing that, although she has an amazing ancestry, the only thing that lies in her future is a broken heart, the symbol of the Ninth Street Gang. She and her lifelong friend Ana are two of the toughest members of their gang, fearing nothing but the loss of each other. Car-jacking, fights, and running from the cops are a daily routine as the girls fight to protect their territory and their reputation. Performing as "Outrageous Chaos" in local dance contests provides their only relief, but each night they must return home to the sad reality of their lives. Written by Bill Savage <bill@mjmpost.com>

i absolutely loved it.
23 October 2006 | by harlingenhoneySee all my reviews

I honestly don't know why people are hating on the movie. To me...I'm from the Vally in Texas where everything that happens in the movie,happens around me everyday. Gangs fighting,can't talk to another gang member not from your own, getting jumped in....all that stuff. This movie, Livin' the Life..or Party Girls..whatever you wanna call it, this movie just opened the eyes of hopefully every white person out there so they can know that being Latina/Latino isn't as easy as they think. Sometimes the only jobs we can get is as bricklayers or painters. This movie is so real to me...i felt like I was in it. And it was so real to the people at my school, they even made a movie, TOOTHPASTE, and it was on the cover of every newspaper nationwide.
