Editorial Reviews

Bad girls just want to have fun! Sassy Adela León (Martha Higareda) - with her tattoos, body piercing and arrest for indecent exposure - wants to be an actress, which drives her father to distraction. She's not exactly what Mexico City's conservative party has in mind as the daughter of their next nominee. So that she doesn't jeopardize his standing in the coming election, Sr. León enrolls Adela in a stylish finishing school for young ladies. Schoolmistress Maca Ribera (Blanca Guerra) promises him that, with a little effort, she can transform Adela into a "domestic goddess." At first, Adela's free-spirited behavior shocks the other girls. But, before long, they come to admire her spunk. By celebrating one another's differences, the girls form fast friendships and, suddenly, life at their stuffy school has become one big slumber party! When Adela is asked to play the biggest role of her life - the hostess of an influential dinner party for her father - she really dishes it out!

Although I would consider this a chick flick, the mexican type of humor allows this to be entertaing even for guys. The playful and sometimes even cheesy sexuality in the movie is not at all distasteful or unnecessary, but rather adds to the comedic sense of the film and gives it a sensual touch. Martha Higareda is a great and beautiful actress, and truly gives her character life as she portrays a young and rebelious senator's daughter, who is sent to an academy for ladies where she is to learn how to act like a proper woman in order to not ruin her father's campaign. The movie has great music by Ximena Sariñana, who also stars in this movie along with Rafael Sanchez Navarro, Blanca Guerra, Camila Sodi, and directed by Fernando Sariñana. If you are a fan of mexican comedies, then this is definately one to watch.

I liked this movie and enjoyed it very much. It is one of those movies that doesn't require alot of thinking like trying to figure out a plot. There is lots of eye candy as it features several Mexican beauties, most notably Martha Higareda who plays the lead as the priveledged, tatooed rebel, Adela. She is the daughter of an aspiring for more clout Mexican politician. Mexican singer Ximena and daughter of the director Fernando Sabrinana plays a nice role as the gay in the group of rebel girls who meet while attending the boarding school to get some polish and take away the rough edges. Ximena pulls off this role very nicely with her adrogynous looks and playful attitude. She is always listening to music on her headphones rather than paying attention so it's an ongoing gag that they have to tell her to listen up. The girls take nothing serious and are constanly poking fun at being proper. It is hilarious as is the movie throughout. Ximena surprises the other girls by revealing her sexuality when she tells her parents sent her to the school to "fix" her. Of course this opens the door for suttle messages regarding gender and equality. The movie is just slightly risque, by my standards anyway,with the occasional brief nudity,sexual situations and language. Bad girl Adela has the greatest line when asked by the prim and proper headmaster what she likes. Her reponse," Me gustan los girasoles,me gusta el color rosa, el vodka, la mota y el sexto oral." Translation, I like sunflowers,the color rose,vodka, marijuana and oral sex. All the girls break up hysterically with Adela's disregard for being prim and proper. She is the ultimate wild child. The adventures of the girls at the boarding house creates for some rather funny moments.Read more ›

While I'm not partial to "chick flicks", Niñas Mal is one of few teen angst movies that anyone can enjoy. While the ultimate lesson of Niñas Mal (like Lindsay Lohan's Mean Girls) is to stay true to yourself, the movie is unfortunately weighed down with cliches. Too many aspects of the film are borrowed from similar movies, it only stands out thanks to the performances of a great cast.

The film stars Camila Sodhi (daughter of Mexican singer Thalía), the very stunning Martha Higareda of Amar Te Duele, and songbird Ximena Sariñana. Despite the fact that Sariñana stands out as one of the most beautiful young actress of Mexico, I had mixed expectations of her performance considering she continued to find herself in movies (like this one) directed by her father (Fernando Sariñana). I was ultimately happy with the job she did, and in the process became a big fan of her music, thanks to her contribution to the film's soundtrack (give her single "La Tina" a listen).

Niñas Mal is a fun diversion, and while it noticeably recycles ideas from similar movies, it's worth checking out.
