NO MANCHES FRIDA is the story of Zequi, a recently released bank robber who goes to recover stolen money buried by his ditzy accomplice before going to jail. They return to the site only to find that Frida Kahlo High has built a gymnasium over the loot. To get the money, he poses as a substitute teacher for a school that can't seem to keep any teachers around. Zequi comes in ready to lay down the law- but he quickly finds out that life on the inside may have been easier to deal with than a school full of wild and rebellious teenagers.

This movie is great, and the way it's filmed makes it look just like real life, all the stuff that happens, that's from the past. I love this movie. I don't know why, it just seems that every movie with Mariel Hemingway and James Woods has been good, but Frida keeps it really alive. It's kind of funny, the whole version of the guy from Italy and the hotel that he stays in is from real life. If it wasn't, it would be so silly, but that's what makes the movie so great. There's something to be said about the way the actors play their parts, especially with James Woods, who always seems to be on top of everything. So many actors who I think have a great acting career have never really gotten the recognition they deserve, but he is definitely one of those actors who has a few "bad" actors, but it's still really great. I really like this movie, I think I'll give it a 9 out of 10. It's really good.

The film starts with a party on the beach in Spain. This is going on until the morning, then we see a scene where a couple has sex. During this scene, the wife says she wants to go home and sleeps on the couch. The husband leaves the party early, while the wife goes to the car. She finds a phone number for a man she knows who could help her. In the car, she tells the man who she knows, and he agrees to help. The man drives her home, and he gets the guy to meet her at the airport. Then she tells him she is going to be married to him. After the man leaves, he picks up the wife, and they get into the car. They drive to the house of her mother, and they tell her she needs to get dressed. They tell her to put her clothes on. And they kiss. At the airport, the wife sees the man coming out, and she tells him, "Come in". She gets on the plane, and goes to her husband. This film has many things that were really funny to me. One of these was the scenes with the cat. I am not a cat person, but I thought the cat was funny. Another thing I loved was the part when the wife and the husband went to a farmer's market and were told there was a small price of gold in a jar. They took the jar and were happy to get rich. This scene was also funny, but I thought it was slightly less funny than the scene with the cat. The movie was very funny, but if you are looking for something with a lot of dramatic moments, you won't like this movie. If you want to see a funny movie with a lot of drama, you'll probably like this movie. If you like slapstick comedy, you might not. The main character is very annoying, but the jokes are funny, and I think that's why the movie was so successful. I recommend it to people who like slapstick comedy, slapstick comedy, and slapstick comedy.

I find it hard to believe that the reason Frida was singled out in the literary history books for being so unique was because she was not female. I think she could have been labeled as a "prawn" or a "flower" (which is a common character name in China) but she was definitely not a woman. This movie is a fantasy in the same way that "The Golden Bowl" is. It is not a documentary about Chinese culture and there are no real historical facts that you need to know to understand the movie. That's why I like this movie. A movie about a book or a book about a book. It is a movie about a book or a movie about a movie. I think that is the message of the movie. There are many other movies that have a message, and Frida is certainly a movie that I would like to see again.

This film is wonderful.the beginning of the film, the action and the music. And it makes the viewer feel so so happy that they will feel they were in the film. And for that reason alone it should be watched and loved by every one. The characters are lovely, the acting is great and the story is well written.The movie really made me feel like it was made by a real person.and that I could trust her. I recommend everyone to watch it!

I found this movie to be a unique look at the past that doesn't make you feel out of place, but shows that we as Americans are in it together. The movie is different than the norm of how we see the past. It shows the situations with the white nationalist groups that the white community is put in, along with many other people. I personally feel that the movie was showing how white people are in a situation that is both unique and typical. I loved this movie.

I can't remember the last time I saw a comedy that was so funny, but this movie was great. A wonderful movie with great laughs. We have got two types of humor: 1. Actions comedy and 2.Action comedy. This movie will make you laugh so hard you will want to jump in the air! I would like to add that this is a must see movie for anyone who like comedy or action comedy.

I am a huge fan of Bollywood and I absolutely love watching Indian movies. And I love the guys who take on the challenging roles in Hindi films. They always make me laugh and smile at the same time. A young boy has done a great job in this film. His effort is shown through his physical disabilities and his great sense of humour. He is an inspiration to all the young boys out there. His friendship with his father is just an example of what brotherhood is all about. The camera work is fantastic. The whole film is filled with breathtaking shots of the outdoors and the beautiful background music is perfectly chosen to create a wonderfully relaxing and charming mood. One of the biggest mistakes made by Indian movies is that they constantly cram scenes with meaningless scenes. This film is full of meaningful, funny, and touching scenes. And I'm talking about the jokes. They are hilarious. I absolutely loved them. A great movie for all to see.

The quintessential Pauline Fares film that combines classic 80's camp with the aesthetics of a 90's teen/love story. It has a fantastic cast, featuring many of the leading ladies from Fares films. In a clever twist, there is no explicit sex for the film. There are, however, plenty of kissing and love making scenes. While the film doesn't go all that far, it does move in a different direction from the original. This is a cute film that was far more successful than Fares ever was. Watch it, enjoy it, and you will see why.

The first time I saw this movie I had not seen it in about 6 years and it is so much fun to watch. For some reason it was not released in theaters. I would have to say the story was not as good as other movies of this type, but the humor is still good. There are a lot of actresses who had one movie in their careers and didn't return to it after. Although I have seen two of the actresses in other movies, I never saw Fanny Ardantou who was in this movie and never heard about her.

I really liked this film. Frida and Rosie are very much like siblings. Rosie is used to being alone, while Frida is more of a companion, especially in a big family. They do not know each other well, but they are best friends and they do everything together. They have a great time in a strange city. I have seen this movie and I am going to buy it and watch it again. It is a very good movie.

I first heard of this movie when I saw the trailer. After I saw that trailer I started to watch it. I liked it because it was a more realistic story of how a drug addict could behave. It was a really good movie that was actually based on a true story. It was very well made, the story and the acting were great. I loved that. It was different and it was different to everything that had come before. I loved this movie. 9/10

Frida, played with a lot of heart by actress Rachel Weisz, becomes a hero to teen lovers on her first date. This is a wonderful movie for all ages. It shows the struggles teens face in this country, the problems with finding love and the perils of sex, especially if it is not consensual. And it is not the stereotypical high school teen movies that we are used to seeing in the movies. Frida is a good example of a girl who is more than she is asked to be. She is smart, smart girl, funny and sensitive to others. And she is a good leader. The movie is a wonderful representation of the struggles in today's high school. It is based on the book of the same name by novelist, Judith Butler. Frida is the character that we all know and love, but this is the first time we see her portrayed as a young woman. Her personality is different, but the same. Frida is a person who lives life for herself, and tries to do the best she can with it. It is the attitude of a person who thinks, and it shows the struggles that teenagers go through in this day and age. People need to be the person they want to be, and this is the attitude of Frida. She is smart, funny and sensitive to others. The girl has to be strong, brave, and give her all, no matter what. And we all know what she does. This is a wonderful movie. There is nothing wrong with seeing it. This is a great movie that can be watched over and over again.

The way this film was shot is phenomenal. A wonderful image and soundtrack. I was also pleasantly surprised by the outstanding direction. I was in the middle of the film and this is how I wanted to end it. The characters and the plot were all well developed. The storyline was well laid out and the dialogue well written. The direction was fantastic. I've seen a lot of films but this is my favorite and I've seen it three times already. In the same way as Out of the Furnace, This is how I want to end my life. This is my dream. This is who I am. I love the way this film ends. I knew it would end on a cliffhanger, but I still found myself waiting for something, anything to happen and I didn't. This film had me thinking about it for weeks. This film was incredibly touching. It made me feel loved. It made me feel alive. This film made me feel happy. This film was brilliant. I recommend it highly.

This movie is a real throwback to the Italian pre-war films that were heavily laced with innuendo and crude sexual innuendo. It is also a perfect counterpoint to the more sophisticated and intelligent contemporary films, like the recent "Still Alice", that seem to portray sex as something you need to be ashamed of and do nothing with. I think it is a more true reflection of the times and of human nature than the more serious "Capote" or "Before Sunrise". The story is funny and as in the wonderful "All About Eve" the interplay between the two characters is equally charming. The two men are charming, but also their back stories are interesting. To say more about the performance of the actors is probably a bit redundant as they are totally convincing, as are the supporting cast. The love story between Frida and Mafalda is beautiful and passionate, and has a certain elegance. This is definitely a film to watch and to see again.

People who compare this movie with the Beatles movie The Beatles is a bit unfair. Yes, it's all about the Beatles. Yes, it is the story of what happened between a group of friends in their early years. But this movie is not about that. It's about Frida, a woman who doesn't fit in any of the many worlds she lives in. She is a small town girl who never had any friends. She has a kind-hearted, simple family, but her life is otherwise a mix of homesickness, abandonment and loneliness. There are lots of ways in which she is mocked, and it's not for the purpose of making fun of her. In the movie, Frida makes no attempt to change herself. But there are moments when she does, and I don't think there is a moment where she changes. She is true to herself, and so is she. She has no need for the fuss, or attention, or external validation. She is an inspiration, a role model, a beloved woman. And I think that is why she is so inspiring to the young women in the world today, as well as to all those who follow her example. And I think it is also why she is so interesting and so wonderfully played. Also, some of the scenes in the movie are so funny that they might make you laugh out loud. As the characters in the movie are so ordinary, and so painfully simple, that it is hard not to laugh at them, and not to laugh at the movie. But it's the quality of the writing, and the strong performances that make this movie a good watch. I believe it is very different from other movies about women, like "Bridesmaids" or "Snow White and the Huntsman". But as far as I can tell, it is very good, and is a movie I will be looking forward to watching again. It's hard to find anything to complain about. It's a movie worth watching.

I will just say I am no feminist, and that is why I am not giving this film a 10. No one has a right to say that you have a right to say that you don't. But let me tell you I did not like the synopsis of the film. I don't know how they got that exactly. There are so many things that could have been in this film. There are so many things that could have been different. The movie should have taken a lot of time getting to the fun parts of the movie. In this film, you see a lot of characters without much dialogue. That was a great idea. But you can see, the actors are really good. Jennifer Lopez, everyone. Julia Roberts is just great. I do not think this film should have been called Frida. The director could have done it better.

I was really looking forward to this movie. I've always liked Alicia Silverstone, and I love Sandra Bullock, but I was not expecting to see this. I thought it would be one of those over the top "grown-up chick flick", but that was not the case. It was a simple story, about a high school student who wants to do well in school. It's not something that would be common, but she does it. It's funny and touching at the same time. Alicia Silverstone is very sexy, and I love her style of acting. She brings this to the screen in an all out way. This is a real movie to watch, if you like sweet, girly films that won't turn you on.

I have always admired Paul Newman for his incredible acting talents. This film is really a dream come true. The script is awesome, especially the last half-hour. We are in constant dialogue with Paul and he is funny and serious at the same time. His portrayal of this ditzy professional is what makes the film work. And there is a great story about him and his family. I really hope there is a remake of this one. It really is a gem.
