Audience Reviews for The Princess and the Barrio Boy

This is the cutest movie you'd ever see that reflects the tale of "The Little Mermaid", but with culture. Great movie! Great cast: Marisol Nichols, Nicholas Gonzalez, Maria Conchita Alonso, and Edward James Olmos. And, of course, Tony Plana who directed this film, who played Nicholas's character Sol's father in the movie.
