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.

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

From the box this looked like a rather brainless comedy, and some days, when you've worked all day and you want a laugh that is what you want, something fun, not too deep that will make you laugh. The movie far exceeded expectations for me.

The premise of the story is two rich, and totally opposite 20 somethings are left penniless when their father has a heart attack on his 55th birthday. They are devastated, but even moreso when they realize he actually had filed for bankruptcy and the high life would soon change for them, when they move from their mansion near Rodeo Drive to their aunt's home in East LA. One sister is going to law school and she is the one that adapts the best, the other can't quite make the transition to the new neighborhood. One of the best lines in the film is when she judges a guy she sees on the street who is wearing a hoody and looks a little scruffy, saying "Are you Homeless?" and he says "No, are you?". Yeah, that one was tough. Can't judge a book.....

Though this looked more like a comedy, and had comedic moments it is more a story about how family, tradition and heritage are so important and having a good life doesn't necessarily mean having all the material things that you want. Both sisters learn important lessons in their fall from Prada to Nada and come out the better for it.

I did not know any of the actors in the film, but felt that the acting was good and the story, though a bit predictable was very enjoyable. I'm also a sucker for a good ending and I really liked this one.

Overall, a feel-good movie, with a bit of heart.

Sense and Sensibility has always been a favorite story of mine. The title of this film gives no indication that it is a modern rewrite of that story, so it took me far too long to even consider watching this. However, once I found out what it was, I HAD to watch it, no matter whether it was done well or not... and I didn't have expectations that it would be anything but cheesy.
Boy were my expectations wrong. While it parallels the original story well enough in plot points, it is nicely adapted to the California and LAMex cultures. Many of the character details or events are converted in a symbolic or loosely-related-but-still-similar way, making the story interesting enough to even to those familiar with the original.
That is not to say there aren't some times when it seemed a little forced. But those times are few enough to only be momentary distractions. But they are there, and I imagine that someone watching this film who has never read or seen a film version of the original would likely wonder why they were written in.
I am not Latina, but not completely unfamiliar with MexAmerican culture. This aspect of it seemed spot-on to me, but I do not know if someone of the culture would feel the same. Oddly enough, I probably enjoyed it more for having that detail, rather than it being a "white" or homogenous family moving from Beverly Hills to poverty, I feel that added detail change enhanced the story quite well.
Overall, I enjoyed watching this movie. It wasn't as mind-opening as the original, but probably would have been if I didn't know the story.

FROM PRADA TO NADA (a/k/a POBRES DIVAS, Dir. Angel Garcia, Writ. Fina Torres & Luis Alfaro, based on the novel Sense and Sensibility (Dover Thrift Editions) by Jane Austen, 2011, 107 minutes) is a delightful family film and one of the best classic adaptations I have ever seen. With proper nods to Emma Thompson's crowning achievement as adaptationist/writer of the Ang Lee film version Sense And Sensibility (see my review), this film rang true in such a way that I imagined Austen would have written this if she had lived in modern times.

The Dominguez sisters (Nora and Mary, played respectively by Camille Belle and Alexa Vega, based on Eleanor and Marianne Dashwood respectively) suffer the sudden loss of their father on his birthday - and soon find they have suffered the loss of their exquisite California mansion. At the reading of the will, they meet their hitherto unknown half-brother Gabriel, Jr., (Pablo Cruz, loosely based on Austen's John Dashwood) and his snotty wife Olivia (April Bowlby, based on Austen's Fanny Ferrars Dashwood).

As it is Gabriel, Jr. who has all the money and the Dominguez sisters find their father was completely bankrupt, Gabriel and Olivia appear to buy the house out from under the girls. They end up living with their maternal aunt (Belita Moreno) in East L.A. There the cast is completely assembled: the wonderful Nicholas D'Agosto as Edward Ferris (doing a version of Hugh Grant's Edward Ferrars from
