Very good acting and funny.
Lavo
The love interest of all three of these women, is Tomas, a business man who travels to each of his ladies because he can't choose just one.

Honestly, this is just a good movie to be enjoyed on a rainy day or with a girlfriend/boyfriend. It's not supposed to be a great genre-defining movie, it's just supposed to be FUN. The three leading ladies play their parts exactly the way they are meant to be played. Cici (Sofia Vergara) is the bombshell, Lorena (Roselyn Sanchez) is the strong intelligent woman, and Patricia (Jaci Velasquez) plays the rich girl. They have great chemistry on-screen and their rivalry is played very well. It accomplishes exactly what it sets out to do: have fun, and I can't believe people are trashing it for that.

This movie is extremely funny. It's a wonderful romantic-comedy.
It's pretty simple which makes it such a lovable movie. It involves 3 women living in different areas of the US (Miami, Chicago, and the other in New York). The love interest of all three of these women, is Tomas, a business man who travels to each of his ladies because he can't choose just one. All three chicas travel to Tomas' house in California. Tomas himself is already becoming stressed out by having 3 relationships at once and is afraid of any of them meeting each other. Well let's just say his worst nightmare (besides La Llorona getting him) comes true and he is shocked as well are the women.

That's just the beginning, the rest is hilarious with some fun action scenes.
This is a great DVD to add to your collection because you can watch it over and over and not get tired of it!

**Also Nicole Scherzinger, from the Pussycat Dolls, makes a small cameo in this movie as "Miss Puerto Rico".

Look at the DVD cover. If you like the cover, you'll like the movie. This film has assembled an amazing bevy of Latina beauties that is truly mindboggling. I'm not talking about just the three women on the cover (Roselyn Sanchez, Sophia Vergara and Jaci Velasquez). That's only the beginning. Just to name a few, your television screen will be graced by the likes of; Lisa Vidal, Nicole Scherizinger and Ivette Sosa (both formly of Eden's Crush), Joy Enriquez and Sandra Ramirez (my personal favorite). How's that for a line-up and still there's more.

Oh yea, I almost forgot to mention the plot. Young, successful guy tries to juggle three girlfriends at the same time. I bet you've never heard that one before have you? On second thought, forget about the plot, just sit back and enjoy the scenery.

By the way, for all the ladies out there's also Eduardo Verastequi in the cast to peek your interest.

CHASING PAPI has good and bad points. It puts cartoons and music to effective use, and there's some funny satire.

Of course, as others have commented, the big plus is its beautiful ladies. Men may enjoy discussing which of the three women Papi should have chosen. Roselyn Sanchez is my personal favorite.

But at least for me, this film got boring. Perhaps because there wasn't much substance to it. When I felt I was an hour into the film, I checked the timer and saw that only 38 minutes had gone by. The film is only about 75 minutes long (not including credits) but it felt much longer.

The jokes are tame. Those who prefer MONTY PYTON or SOUTH PARK may not find CHASING PAPI too funny.

Worse, this film suffers from what I call "ethnic sitcom disease." You know, when a producer makes a show about a previously unfilmed ethnic group. We see a (Korean, Latino, black, etc.) family, and their home is full of ethnic posters and artwork related to that ethnicity, and the jokes and wisecraks all revolve around celebrities who share that ethnicity, as though people of that ethnic group spend all their time talking about issues related to their ethnic group.

CHASING PAPI feels like an "official latin film," in that the filmmaker felt the need to pass along some messages about latinos. For instance, Cici is constantly harping on how Patricia is "ashamed to be a Latina" because of her "fake eyes" (i.e., colored contact lens). But this makes no sense, because Cici appears to dye her hair blond. Sure, some latinas have blond hair, but some also have blue eyes. What's the big deal?

For that matter, Cici's latin accent seems overdone. I know she's latin, but she also speaks English well.

I'm glad that the Latin market is growing fast and strong and I was thilled when I heard about this movie.
So when it came out I bought it and found it interesting (you wouldn't get board with it) but I felt that it was made to be successful. I mean that because it's "so good and funny" that you feel that "look for success" vibe.
About the cast I can say that Sofia Vergara isn't just a pretty face and body, she does it very good. Jaci Velasquez shows that besides having a beautiful voice she can also act good. Roselyn Sanchez is also very good. Finally about Eduardo Versategui I think that he was chosen because of his looks because he doesn't work good at all and I think that maybe because of that he sleeps during almost the whole movie.
The story is about a guy (Verastegui) who has 3 women. One in Miami (Vergara), another in New York (Velasquez) and the other in Chicago (Sanchez). Because of his job he spends time in the 3 cities and his home in Los Angeles. Any of the girls know that they are not the only one. But one day they all decide to go to his house in Los Angeles because they heard in a Walter Mercado show (a very famous latin psychic) that women should be alert because their husbands or boyfriends could cheat on them.
So at his house the find out the whole story but they can't do something about it at that time because the love of their lifes is sleeping because he took some sleeping pills because of his stress with the three of them.
The story has a twist when a police woman starts to chase them because she thinks that they're delinquents.
The movie didn't have a lot of success but it's ok, funny and all that but not good.
