Casi Divas

2 out of 5 stars

Time Out says

2 out of 5 stars

The aging star of a popular Mexican telenovela (Llaca) becomes enraged when she learns that her producer-lover (Bracho) is replacing her in the soap’s feature-film version. It gets worse: Her youthful doppelgnger will be selected through an American Idol--style reality competition. Issa Lpez’s ensemble comedy follows four contestants, each hailing from a distinct region and socioeconomic background, while attempting a meta-expos on TV’s ageist, racist and classist nature. In using the urban poor and the queer community as punch lines, Casi Divas ultimately succumbs to its own criticism.—Monika Fabian
