  • It's hard to remain interested in everyone when they're continually shuffled around. Half-baked storylines abound. show more

  • The film and its makers simply try too hard. Director and co-writer Judy Hecht Dumontet can't stop "helping" with overactive editing and scoring, such as tinkling bells every time the sacred tortilla is shown early on. show more

  • As flat as a tortilla and considerably less nourishing. show more

    Latino families will enjoy it. It is a clever whimsical fable that does not pretend to be anymore than what it is. A good movie for families.
