I should preface this review by confessing that I've never (yet) read "Sense and Sensibility", upon which this film is supposed to be based (reset in the East L.A. latino community). I've seen it strongly recommended elsewhere (e.g., TVTropes) that you read the Austen book first then see the film to appreciate the latter even more.

The "official" reviews, cover blurb ("riches to rags"), and even the title are a little misleading. While the girls (Camilla Belle as the older sister, Nora, and Alexa Vega as Mary) do lose their fancy Beverly Hills home when their dad dies and it's revealed he was nearly bankrupt, and they have to go live with their aunt in the barrio, the *main* story is about them discovering they do love the latina side of their heritage and their new neighborhood, plus finding, losing, then regaining love relationships.

While it wasn't intentional, my order also included "Crossing Over", which should be quite a contrast in its treatment of latino individuals and communities in the U.S.

The best thing I have done in a long time is order this movie - From Prada to Nada. It is most enjoyable, and we think that the next "Heart Throb" for girls will be Nicholas D'Agosto. Not only is he handsome, but his acting is really great. Not once was he a disappointment in this Very Entertaining movie. Why can't there be more movies like this (with Nicholas starring in it, of course). If anyone out there has a good movie along the lines of "From Prada to Nada", please say so. I was thoroughly entertained. I am glad to be a customer of Amazon so I can order more of these good movies. Thank you.

FROM PRADA TO NADA is SOMETHING! May 31 2011
By I'd rather be at Pemberley! - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I had every intention of seeing this movie in the theaters but missed it. When it came up as a recommendation on Amazon I rented it immediately. Yes, it is very, loosely based on Sense and Sensibility. VERY LOOSELY, mostly in thematic strains, but you can still see the connection.

The twist is that the characters are based on a hispanic family in Los Angeles. There is an easy transition from english to spanish in the film, with the spanish dialogue subtitled. This is a particularly charming aspect of the movie as the transition happens effortlessly and really lends to the comical aspect of the film. Being hispanic myself, only made it more endearing to me. The family from East Los Angeles, reminded me so much of relatives and friends, I was crying with laughter! The aunt is truly a wonderful actress and has some of the funniest lines. Bruno, played by Wilmer Valderama, is exceptional. HIs subtle approach to his character was a pleasant surprise. Alexa Vega plays the perfect "Barbie" character!

Knowing some spanish/spanglish is a definite plus to get the idiosyncrasies of the script but, by no means, restricts any viewer from getting the humor.

I rented it and then bought it. Is it an Academy Award winning film? No, but it is different, refreshing and a breath of fresh air.

When One Door Closes... Dec 23 2012
By Butterfly - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
This movie was funny, sad at times, and the tension ran deep. I thought this would be another "cute" movie, but there were so many lessons in this so-called "silly" movie.

1.) illusion versus reality
2.) family comes first
3.) stay true to your roots
4.) be kind to others/help the down-trodden
5.) be happy wherever you are
and many, many more

Excelente! March 10 2013
By Strategy Professor - Published on Amazon.com
The average rating for this film is misinformed and misleading. This movie is an amazing experience in Mexican culture and the purity of unconditional love within a family as well as love between a man and a woman. This one is a must see! I am so glad that we have unlimited streaming because I will see this film a few more times!

SOMETIMES YOU PLAY THE GAME... May 16 2011
By The Movie Guy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
...even when you know you can't win. Two polar opposite sisters (the whore and the spinster) suddenly find themselves poor upon the death of their father. They discover they have a brother who takes 1/3. They move from Beverly Hills to East LA to live with their estranged aunt. The two sisters were excellently portrayed by Camille Bell and Alexa Vega who managed to shine through a predictable script with a weak plot and lack of character building. While attempting to break with the negative stereotypes of Latino-Americans it reenforces others.

The movie carries a message about the importance of family and is the perfect film for the teenage drama queen in your life. No nudity. No sex, although it shows Alexa waking up in bed with a man, no f-bombs. It might be fairer to the movie and Jane Austin to claim the film was inspired by her book rather than being based on it, I mean they did cut out the third sister, Margaret.

From Prada to Nada...a bit cheesy April 15 2013
By Mara I. Patino-Sanchez - Published on Amazon.com
It was kind of cheesy and predictable, but loved seeing all the hispanic actors in it. The two main female characters were bad and the make-up jobs HORRIBLE!!!
