The writing and dialogue is terrible, and the casting is worse. Alexa Vega (who plays Paula) is half Columbian and half white. English is her first language. They gave her one of those orange fake tans in a sorry attempt to make her look more Hispanic... which is VERY perturbing in a movie that is supposed to be a historical account of racism against Hispanic. I mean really, you couldn't find ONE Mexican actress in LA??
The perpetuation of Hispanic stereotypes is nauseating, not to mention insulting, and the movie plays out in a way that makes it look like the only thing the Hispanic community in LA does is sit around talking about being "chicano."
