Editorial Reviews

Jessica Ramos (Cornia Katt Ayala) is blessed with a spectacular voice, but her tough-girl Bronx attitude is getting in the way success. Her older sister, Francesca (Iris Chacon), a popular singer in a local Latin nightclub, tries to give her a way into the industry, but Jessica refuses to get along with her or anyone else. Making the situation even more tense is Jonathan Ramirez, their spoiled freeloading cousin who is also at the receiving end of Jessica's nasty attitude. Enter the funny and always-scheming Flaco (Marc Anthony) who befriends Jonathan and helps him stay away from the gangs and lowlifes of their Bronx barrio. But Flaco has his own demons to battle with the death of his mother, and his father's alcoholism. Although each member of this unlikely group is struggling to succeed against their own odds, they decide to join forces and form a hot new music group that takes them on a triumphant journey through nightclubs, studios, and parties right into the heart of the New York Latin music scene.

While Marc Anthony is top-billed here, it is clear this movie won't be remembered for him. The dancing in this movie is the real focal point. Unlike the acting and the plot, the dances really do stand out (though you have to get to the latter half of the film to enjoy them). The most unforgettable dance number is Conga, Bongo y Timbal. This number features Iris Chacon, Puerto Rico's inimitable sex symbol. Reported to have measured 36-24-40, she was not shy about wearing bold costumes like the gold "teddy" she uses here. This be-thonged costume showcases her legendary posterior end. Before J.Lo, there was Iris. Though J.Lo was more successful, Iris was clearly more, uh, talented (and a better dancer). Is it coincidence that both women have worked with Marc Anthony? Certainly. In short, if you're a fan of Iris Chacon, this DVD is not to be missed.

What can you say. The music is good & those who can relate to the names surely should have this copy. This has extended parts i never seen before.
Dance music changed from dancing a style called freestlying to listening to the music called Freestyle.
This is all classic Hearthrob, 1018 Days & Acts back from NYC 1987 !!!!
