Reviews about Ana Maria in Novela Land

Ana Maria in Novela Land
Alicia Jimenes
Better than I thought it would it be

I wasn't expecting it to be as good as it was. It lampshaded a lot of tropes that fans of novelas will recognize. The main actress was really good at playing the two different characters. I didn't even realize it was only one actress til almost halfway through the movie. This is definitely for Mexican-American fans of novelas.

If you grew up watching NOVELAS, you will definitely enjoy watching this FILM :)

Best laugh I had in a long while. Growing up with my mom and her Novelas made this movie even more hysterical. Maybe slightly over the top, but that's really what made it funny for me, all the Spanish Novelas are WAY OVER THE TOP!
