Storyline

When their dad dies on his 55th birthday, Beverley Hills sisters, Mary and Nora, find themselves destitute, forced by a grasping sister-in-law to move in with their aunt in East L.A. Mary, the younger sister, is mortified: spoiled by her dad, ignorant of Spanish, scared of the vatos. Her sister convinces her to finish college, and she promptly decides that one of her T.A.s will be her ticket back to Rodeo Drive. Elder sister Nora, a law student, gets a job as a legal intern, and Edward, her supervisor, the brother of the grasping sister-in-law, promptly falls for her. Slowly, the sisters realize what a rich place the barrio is at the same time that they get bruised in the contact sport of love. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

When Edward brings Nora the "deed" to co-sign at the end of the movie, the preprinted information on the document lists the house's address as being in the "State of Utah."

Just okay
26 November 2019 | by jml1988See all my reviews

This wasn't horrible but wasn't great. The more spoiled sister was somewhat insufferable and slow to have a positive character growth. I thought it was fun and enjoyable for the sisters to fully experience and enjoy their Spanish heritage and culture.
