Description

Beatriz (Salma Hayek), an immigrant from a poor town in Mexico, has drawn on her innate kindness to build a career as a spiritual health practitioner in Los Angeles.

    This movie is absolutely not a comedy. It's not funny at all. It was painful to watch, and I coudn't even make it through to the end. Look at the ratings: there are twice as many 1-star ratings as there are 5-star ratings. Not sure who all the 5-star ratings were, those may be fake.
  • Much worse than I expected

    The movie dragged in areas that I felt the story really beat to death... Unfortnunately there were so many sub stories that it barely scratched the surface on that had ZERO follow through. Left me wanting more. Glad it was only a .99 cent rental LOL
  • Even at 99 cents, it's not worth it

    It's hard to know what the director was trying to accomplish here beyond showing the awkward interactions between a group of self-absorbed rich people and a kind-hearted, but delusional and probably mentally-ill "healer". Not much happens. The dialogue isn't all that witty. Neither side has much of an idealogy to cheer about.

    Most of the one star reviews seem disappointed that this wasn't a comedy. This is not a comedy. I didn't even see that genre listed, and it seemed obvious from the trailer. That helped my expectations to be in line with what this movie is trying to do. The word that comes to mind with this movie is "zeitgeist." It captures the current mood of society perfectly. I love that about this film. The characters as written seem a little too black and white, but I think that's the point. We live in such a polarized time. We are seeing each other that way. The players do an excellent job at adding subtlety and complexity to their roles which is what really makes the film work. Many people are having a hard time with the ending. If you were wanting a comedy, you will hate it. If you like symbolism and thinking about the deeper meaning behind events in a film, you will appreciate it.

    Gave this movie 4 stars because it was a pretty good DRAMA. Why Apple lists this movie as a "Comedy" is baffling?
  • Impatient for our own self satisfaction

    Really liked the movie......about the sad state of parts of humanity that lack the depth to be aware of the world around them and the damage they inflict, even on each other. This almost perfectly mirrors 90% of the iTunes reviewers who commented on a movie they didn't get.....shame.

    I watched this on a long plane ride and I made it to the end. I wanted to like it, I saw what it was going for but it utterly failed to achieve its purpose. It was all charicature. No remorse. No lessons learned from this woman's mystical healing powers. Certainly not comedy. Nothing funny about it.
