Screen before watching with kiddos.

The storyline was great until Episode 13 “Enemies”, they threw in a scene of two scheming men in bed (no, not in the act). This scene was not necessary but it did explain the TV-MA rating. I tried to Google in advance why the show was rated TV-MA, in search of any raunchy or overkill scenes and this was not in any of the reviews.

This movie has the worst actors. I almost feel embarrassed for the real Vicente Fernández. None of the actors that sing are able to sing sing painful to watch. I’m 55 years old and I’m very familiar with many of the events in Mexican singers and there seems to be much made up events and feel that they are made to to feet the times we currently live. Maybe the regular Anglo can be genuinely entertained as fir me I’m constantly fact checking it’s not a truly genuine story of his life.
