Movie Review: Quinceañera (2006)

Magdalena, played by Emily Rios, jealously attends her friend’s Quinceañera (sweet 15 party) and plans her own. But her parents have their eyes on the budget, and have the same dress altered. The dress, which was already let out, still is not big enough, leading to suspicions that Magdalena is pregnant. Her conservative parents throw her out of the house and she runs to the abode of her 84 year old great-grand uncle Tomas, played by Chalo González, and gay cousin Carlos (8 inches uncut, if you know what I mean), played by Jesse Garcia, to live. Gay landlords move in and the fun begins.

This movie is guaranteed to make you smile as it examines the interplay between those traditionally cast out by families: pregnant teens and gay teens. Now that is saying a lot about a film! There is quite a bit of charm here, watching Tio Tomas sell champurrado (a thick chocolate brew) from a shopping cart in the neighborhood of Echo Park.

This film really is a must see. How can anything go far from wrong in the world? I give this movie:

**** of five stars.

I saw this a while back and I loved it. Carlos is way hunky and I would have left my boyfriend for him. But I don't get the marrying your cousin part, especially he's gay, nor do I get how sperm can travel from your thigh all the way upstream. But it is a very sweet movie.

They didn't marry; he just escorted her at her Quinceanera and vowed to stay and be her kid's dad.
