Review From Prada To Nada & earn 20 DM Points.*

This movie is supposed to be based on Jane Austens Sense and Sensibility and the credits say that too but the movie has none of Austens sense of drama or dry wit.

The story follows two sisters who on their fathers death realise they are left penniless and move from their posh Beverly Hills home to their aunts down market home in the ghettos of East Los Angeles. It is here that they rediscover their lost Mexican roots and also find true love.

The actors do their best with the flimsy material provided to them. The story is interesting enough (After all it was written by Jane Austen originally!) with things happening all the time but the characters fail to engage you in their emotional lives. The love lost and found is of the quality found in American high school romances instead of two grown up women trying to make sense of their newly changed lives and circumstances. The only parts that are well done are where the girls are shown slowly absorbing and learning and finally becoming proud of their roots.

The rest is strictly ho hum. So you leave the theatre and promptly forget what you saw in the glare of the afternoon sun.

If you dont want to watch cricket and have seen everything else that is showing you wont do too badly watching this movie. Dont look for entertainment that has more air than whipped cream and you wont be disappointed.
