There were aspects and parts of the movie that were venturing down the 'chick flick' lane, while other parts of the movie were so predictable that you saw it coming a mile away.

The "big joke" in "From Prada to Nada" is that two spoilt rich girls, Nora Dominguez (Camilla Belle) and Mary Dominguez (Alex Vega) are, owing to a sequence of events (too boring to discuss), forced to abandon their upper class lifestyle for a working class lifestyle in a Mexican community in southern Los Angeles.

I do not know why others did not like this, but I actually found it worth the watch.

In short, if you're looking for a sassy, poignant, funny and unpredictable film, then this is the one for you!

One of the worst movies I've seen in a long while.

A very enjoyable watch.

And, for a go- getter, Mary falls way too short and ends up in a more than predictable car accident.

She was very entertaining.

If you're on the edge, do some research first.

I think the parts in Spanish are much more entertaining if you know Spanish.

This movie gives us a glimpse on how to handle adversities in our lives when we are faced with unexpected circumstances?

Definitely a movie worth watching.

i enjoyed it.

The two sisters were excellently portrayed by Camille Bell and Alexa Vega who managed to shine through a predictable script with a weak plot and lack of character building.

But still, "From Prada to Nada" turned out to be an enjoyable and somewhat beautiful movie.

An Unexpected Twist .

No exaggeration, this is the worst movie I have ever seen.

But you won't need kleenexes for "From Prada to Nada," because this film is essentially a long catalogue of boring clichés and stereotypes.

So, in conclusion, I recommend this "film" as a penance for minor sins, as a torture instrument in terrorist camps and to masochistic people.

But I say save your money and rewatch the original movie or 'When Harry Met Sally' instead.

Worst part of it was the acting, all in all, don't watch it, its a waste of time and money.

If you decide to watch this movie, be prepared for a slow and painful death.

Waste of Time .

In short decent acting, good Austen plot, and warm loving characters made this worth watching at least once.

Not everyone is going to get this film but in my opinion, "From Prada to Nada" is a highly enjoyable movie that surprisingly has something for everyone.

Enjoyable romantic comedy which presents with naive way the Mexican culture and addressed primarily at young girls.

Finding it hard to even fill in 10 lines about this awful movie with this kind of a plot where even the main actors has no morals it seemed, made the most absurd and unbelievable decisions and yet predictable.
