Amazon.com

From Prada to Nada is a romantic comedy, a social commentary about America's class system and Latino culture in America, and a modern retelling of Jane Austen's classic novel Sense and Sensibility. The definition of true wealth varies from person to person; to some it means designer labels and fancy cars, to others a caring family, or a strong connection with one's culture. Well-to-do sisters Nora and Mary are opposites in every way, from their long-range goals to their choices in clothing. While Nora has a strict 10-year plan that avoids romance in favor of law school and a law career, Mary is into shopping, status symbols, and dating wealthy, good-looking boys. When their father dies unexpectedly, Nora and Mary find themselves alone, penniless, and united in a common battle to survive. A kind aunt takes them in, but her place in East Los Angeles is a far cry from their elegant home in Beverly Hills, and her way of life couldn't be more different from what they're accustomed to. Besides being forced to give up things like Prada bags and enrollment in law school, Mary and Nora are thrown into a decidedly unfamiliar Latino culture about which they find they have many misconceptions. From Prada to Nada is effective on three very different levels: it does a good job of exposing the dichotomy between the wealthy and the poor in America, of authentically portraying what it's like to be Latino-American, and of taking a classic story and making it modern and accessible. Camilla Belle, Alexa Vega, Wilmer Valderrama, and Adriana Barraza are especially compelling in their respective roles, and the film's rich setting and the skilled camerawork further enhance the emotional power of the viewing experience. Bonus features include a 23-minute interview with the producers and directors, an18-minute conversation between muralist and founder of the Social and Public Art Resource Center (SPARC) Judy Baca and Valderrama, a round-table discussion with the main cast members, bloopers, deleted scenes, and the theatrical trailer. --Tami Horiuchi

Product Description

Nora and Mary only know the good life in Beverly Hills – shopping, posh parties, and more shopping – but they’re in for a big shock when Daddy’s fortune suddenly disappears. Thankfully, an aunt takes them under her wing but she lives on the other side of town. Laugh out loud as these princesses embark on the biggest adventure of their lives…without designer labels!

4.0 out of 5 stars FROM PRADA TO NADA is SOMETHING! May 31, 2011
Format:Amazon Instant Video|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.

5.0 out of 5 stars When One Door Closes... December 23, 2012
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

I love learning about different cultures. What I don't like is getting into a movie that's predominantly about a culture - in this case the hispanic culture in LA (which is different than the hispanic culture in the rest of the country) - and having the idiots and the bad guys all be white. How does anyone expect us to live together amongst different races, ideals, and cultures when slamming another culture? I can recommend much better films with hispanic storylines.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excelente! March 10, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
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!

4.0 out of 5 stars SOMETIMES YOU PLAY THE GAME... May 16, 2011
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars From Prada to Nada...a bit cheesy April 15, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
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!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars from prada to nada is nada May 21, 2014
By USA
Format:DVD
I had high hopes when I saw the trailer for this film, but my hopes were not realized. This is a really poorly done film. I cannot believe it won any awards. It was basically a Mexican-American propaganda film. What else would you call it when one of the main characters states that of course he speaks Spanish - he lives in LA. The plot is beyond believable. Two girls are suddenly impoverished when their father drops dead of a heart attack. Unknown to them, he had been facing bankruptcy. At his funeral a brother the girls knew nothing about suddenly appears to claim his share of the inheritance. But there supposedly is none, remember? Yet they are allowed to keep the mansion they grew up in and everything in it. No creditor ever comes to take it away. But for some mysterious reason, the girls, who own 2/3 of the mansion and everything in it, foolishly sell it to their brother and end up penniless in the deal. Really stupid. They trounce off, penniless but owning a few expensive personal belongings to their poor aunt, who, even though she lives in LA, speaks virtually no English and who proceeds to sell everything of value the girls own and pocket the proceeds, in advance payment for their upkeep. There is a lot a mariachi music, which really sounds hokey and although there are some rough characters in the background, the poor Mexican part of town the girls end up in is mysteriously peopled by artists and various other good guys. Naturally, the girls end up alright in the end.
People say this movie was based on sense and sensitivity and if it was it just showed the poor judgement of the producer and directer. Sense took place in a time and place when women did not inherit, which is the fatal flaw in this plot, as these girls did inherit the major share of a mufti-million dollar mansion and everything in it. They never took their brother to court to fight out the apportioning of the inheritance.but simply handed it over to him without a fight.
