Quotes

Beauty Pageant Judge: [during Beauty Pageant] How would you respond to those who say: a beauty contest such as this does more for the objectification of women, rather than women's rights?
Lorena: I say, what better way to show that a woman can be both beautiful and intelligent? In fact, if chosen, I plan to propose that all beauty contestants are required to take entrance exams.
Miss Mexico: [mumbling] What the hell is she talking about?

'Chasing Papi' is innocuous and fun, but ultimately laughless
1 September 2003 | by kibler@adelphia.netSee all my reviews

Chasing Papi (2003) Roselyn Sanchez, Sofia Vergara, Jaci Velasquez, Eduardo Verastequi, Lisa Vidal, Freddy Rodriguez, D.L. Hughley, Maria Conchita Alonso, D: Linda Mendoza.

Inoffensive but underwhelming Latin comedy about a handsome Romeo working as an advertising executive and dating three beautiful women in three different states all at once. When they are convinced to drop everything they're doing and race to their man's side, all three women discover of his betrayal and get wrapped up in a quandary together.

If it weren't for a plot about a bag of money, this silly story wouldn't go anywhere. It's fun, but a smile is the closest thing you'll find to a single laugh.

Running Time: 80 minutes and rated PG for mild sensuality and language.

RATING: ** (out of ****)
