Audio problem: When Chris drives up in the truck while Selena is mowing the lawn, Selena asks what he got. While you hear "junk food" his mouth says something else.
Continuity mistake: When Selena is singing "Como La Flor" in Mexico after the crowd was pushing into the stage, her mouth doesn't match the words to the song. Her mouth is a few words ahead of the song.
Continuity mistake: When Selena is in Mexico and is singing, she puts her microphone out into the crowd but somehow her voice didn't get any softer, so you automatically know she is lip syncing.
Trivia: The back up guy with the mullet was the real Selena's back up dancer and singer. His name is Pete Astudillo. He did many duets with her as well has having his own Tejano music hits.
Mexican Guy: Anything for Salinas.
Abraham: We have to be more Mexican than the Mexicans and more American than the Americans, both at the same time! It's exhausting.
Selena Quintanilla: I may not be street wise and all that, but at least I'm not that dumb.
Question: Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but the credits show that Panchito Gomez played young Abraham. I've seen Panchito Gomez in 80's movies such as Tuff Turf and he doesn't resemble at all the actor playing young Abraham. However, he DOES resemble the gentleman in the cowboy hat who stiffs Abraham money for Selena's performance and says "She's just a woman." I always wondered if the credits made a mistake. Anyone know?
Question: Pete Astudillo is in the first scene when Selena was at the Houston Astrodome on February 26, 1995. He left the Dinos in 1993. I watched the original video of that same concert and another guy was on stage her, not Pete Astudillo. Was this a mistake or did they just keep it uniform for the movie?
