    Film Threat

    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

    If it was simply a jokey commentary on the dangers of greed and religious fervor, Tortilla Heaven would be forgivable. But Hecht Dumontet deserves special derision for her hypocritical condescension toward Falfúrrias' simple-folk caricatures, rendering them as God-fearing dolts worthy of scorn until the patronizing finale, which tries for a spiritual uplift that's as disingenuous as it is incompetently executed. 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.
