Editorial Reviews

In this rags-to-riches story, down-and-out Juan Lopez (Paul Rodriguez) is deported from East Los Angeles back to Mexico. To earn enough money to support his son (Jonathan Hernandez), the devoted father resorts to selling oranges on the side of the road. Juan's luck suddenly changes when a mysterious benefactor in a limousine hands him a check for $1 million. There's one catch: Juan must avoid temptation and greed and put the money to good use.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the most favorite love story I ever saw September 10, 2002
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
Personally, I enjoy this film whenever I see it that I bought a copy for myself. It has an unlikely twist. You have this Hispanic widower(Rodriguez) raising his son with his brothers,battling dirty landlords,immigration issues,stereotypes,and the whole nine yards. He runs into a guy who hands him a check and the story runs from there. why I consider it a beautiful love story is due to the underplot with Juan and the Immigration lady(Polly Draper). Why I love it so much is because despite the stuff that Juan went through, he always had a dream, and he kept his head up no matter what. And he was a good father for his son. I just happened to catch this movie on cable some years back, and I became hooked. Hope you will too.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best yet underrated movies there is. October 10, 2001
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
I saw this movie a couple of years ago, and loved it from the start. I forgot about it until I was checking out movies and all and start to looking for it. But if you ever felt like giving up, and you need a serious boost, well, this is the movie to see. here you have this man who was born in this country, but had no proof, then he lived in this slum of an apartment, worked as best as he could, and he gets a windfall of a million dollars that he had to give back after thirty days. It caused poor Juan problems upon problems, but in the end, he really triumphs. See, I always feel that we always will have obstacles, but what we do with them is the key. Now, as far as I'm concerned, this is one of the best films ever made. but, it probably wasn't so popular because it didn't hold the interest with sex,drugs,violence. But, this movie is a gem. many kudos to Paul Rogriguez and cast for this film.

5.0 out of 5 stars a very sweet movie with a lot of heart June 7, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I was searching for a good film to show my Spanish 1 class as a reward for their hard work throughout the year. I didn't want to show "Selena" or "Stand and Deliver" because a lot of the students had already seen them. Fortunately, I stumbled across "A Million to Juan" and tried it. After watching it to make sure it was school-appropriate, I knew I had picked a winner. The plot was interesting, the characters engaging, and the message hopeful. I highly recommend the film for anybody. There are a couple of racy comments at the beginning, but, overall, "A Million to Juan" is a good family film.

4.0 out of 5 stars This is a great album March 1, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is going to be a short review because I'm tired.
The music on this album is incredible. It is really a shame that so many bands on this CD didn't make it big because the talent is really there.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Terrific Movie July 12, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Loosely based on a short story by Mark Twain called "The 10,000 Pound Note", "A Million to Juan" is updated for the 90's and set in East LA. Paul Rodriquez stars as a single father who is given a million dollar check by a mysterious stranger with the stipulation that the check be returned. So what good is it? You'd be suprised! Employing a mostly Latino cast including Edward James Almos, Tony Plana, and Gerardo Mejia, Rodriguez explores a gentle, often comical and sometimes heartbreaking side to life that is mostly overlooked in today's films.

In today's environment of "gritty", honest and mostly violent films, A Million To Juan" should be treasured, and not to be missed. Be sure to catch Cheech Marin's cameo as "Shell Shock".

5.0 out of 5 stars A Million to Juan July 16, 2007
A great comedy-rags to riches-romantic movie for the whole family to see. It's about Juan (played by Paul Rodriguez) who is given a million dollars by a mysterious stranger (Edward James Olmos) to use for 30 days. Meanwhile, Olivia (played by Polly Draper)is trying to obtain a green card for him, and his landlord (Paul Williams) is making life miserable for him, his family, and his friends. What takes place in between all that is what makes it worth watching.

1.0 out of 5 stars Below average movie with one of the all time worst titles.
It is a sweet, kind movie. Yes, it is touching. But it's also very hammy, full of caricatures and cliches in developing anything. Read more
