Colombia, USA: Ugly Betty

Lots of opinions about last weeks US premier of “Ugly Betty,” Selma Hayek's adaptation of the hit Colombian TV show for a North American audience. VivirLatino declares “Ugly Betty is beautiful fluffiness while Andres Duque divides his review between “the good, the bad, and the ugly.” Colombian-born Logtar writes, ” I watched the Soap Opera called pretty much the same thing “Betty la fea” (Betty the Ugly) a couple of time and it seems to be a pretty accurate adaptation.”
