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?

User Reviews

Watch it twice--it gets better.
14 October 2003 | by johnrinckSee all my reviews

I was attracted to this movie after seeing Sofia Vergara on one of the late night talk shows. Anyway, after watching her interview, "Chasing Papi" became a must see, but I didn't actually see it until this week when it hit Pay-per-View.

I have to admit that the first time I watched it I was a bit dismayed that the plot seemed thin, but being that virtually every scene involved Sofia, I really didn't care. You can look at her a thousand times and each time you will will see something new that makes her appear even more beautiful.

So naturally I watched the movie again, and this time I noticed that the movie flowed a bit better and that the plot wasn't as thin as I originally thought it was. Couple that with Sofia looking better than in the first viewing, and I can only surmise that this movie will get BETTER with each repeated viewing.

I know what my schedule is like for the rest of the year!
