Loved this movie but viewer beware, don't watch the previews of other movies unless you like horror and satanic movies. I bought a peaceful, loving film and was blasted with evil previews I did not intend to see, so it left me feeling really disturbed. Back to this movie: John Leguizamo is gorgeous in this film. I love his voice and his spirit. The other actors did an incredible job. Really loved this film.

John Leguizamo is an engaging performer and perhaps one of our most underrated personalities. His willingness to take risks and unconventional roles has led to a more diverse film career than you might expect. Unfortunately, more often than not, these choices have taken him down a dubious path. With a resume littered with more interesting "misses" than artistically successful films, Leguizamo still manages to stand out as a talent--his bravado and gusto usually the best thing in a picture that has misfired. His presence in "Sueno," therefore, is a welcome sight--for if ever there was a picture that needed "edge," it's this sweet little concoction.

A throwback to more innocent times (although contemporary in setting), "Sueno" is a standard underdog story. Lovable Leguizamo, perhaps too subdued in this performance, is a talented musician looking to get his big break. As a Mexican immigrant, breaking into and succeeding in the Los Angeles musical arena is tantamount to living the American dream. Lucky for him, then, that there is a Latin radio contest (a battle of the bands) that will give its winner much exposure. As you might expect, Leguizamo now has to bring together a group of misfit musicians to form "the next big sound." Of course, the film provides a stock villain in a rival and unnecessarily ruthless musician--hmmm, I wonder if they'll have a showdown on stage? Sprinkle in some romance, slap on a tidy ending--and it's an undeniably pleasant crowd pleaser! Maybe, but one that holds no surprises and no original ideas.

It's hard not to have some fondness for a film that turns the gritty urban music scene into something that rivals the "Aw shucks, let's put on a show!" mentality of an old Mickey Rooney classic. Because "Sueno" is fantasy, pure and simple.

Like most films that feature a lot of great music, the story itself here is nothing to get excited about. Even so, the acting is excellent, the story IS charming, and my wife got all misty about the romance aspect of it. Highly recommended as part of a romantic date night in...even if you've been married to your date for a while.

When film credits don't include the writer/s names, problems can be expected. This little candy-coated attempt to explore how 'dreams really do come true' is more a music video than a full fledged film, a project where obviously the money was spent on the graphics of the opening credits and the staged musical numbers rather than on the script. This is not a bad movie: it is just predictably trite and places lines in the mouths of some very fine actors that must have been an embarrassment to speak.

Antonio (John Leguizamo, with lots of hair and none of his expected comedic edge) is a Mexican immigrant who lands in Los Angeles with his grandfather's philosophy to follow that dream (`Sueño') and believes he will find his major career in his music. Reality sets in immediately as he is forced to work in his uncle's Taco Stand and play his guitar and sing in sleazy deadbeat nightclubs. He meets a customer Nina (Ana Claudia Talancón) who dreams of becoming a veterinarian but is committed to caring for her ailing papa (Winston J. Rocha). Despite sweet Antonio's attempts to woo her, she remains adamant that she must devote her life to caring for papa. Next door to Anthony the apartment is occupied by Mirabella (Elizabeth Peña), a newly divorced, middle-aged pudgy ex-singer who does housekeeping and laundry to support her children while she dreams of once again becoming a star vocalist: again the heart of gold Antonio befriends her, hears her sing and insists she has great talent.

Antonio is encouraged by a good-hearted 'manager' Rafael (Jsu Garcia) and is paired with three other musicians to form a group El Gran Colectivo with the hesitant Mirabella as vocalist.

I really enjoyed this movie. I got a little misty myself. Strong acting, solid musical performances. I liked the "follow your dreams" theme and the side story of the woman who thinks she is too old to be sexy. Obviously not! Viva la musica!

This movie is quirky and very sweet. It has some really good music in it. It is a role for Leguizamo that you don't normally see him play.
