Crazy From The Heart Movie Review
Crazy From The Heart Is
What a fun romp Crazy From The Heart is! A romantic comedy that shares the life of a quiet, strict, strait-laced and totally respectable female high school principal who is settled in a predictable long-term romance that is going nowhere fast...
She shocks everyone when she agrees to go on a date with the Mexican janitor and, of course, she has no idea that she is about to fall in love. However, the date turns out to be a roaring success and thus begins the crazy adventure that will see her put firmly in the eye of a small town gossip mill and scandal.
On this page you will find more information about the movie including reviews by ordinary movie viewers like you and I who love this movie, some of whom watch it over and over again.

Crazy From The Heart Story Line
Christine Lahti stars as Charlotte Bain as a ‘perfect’ high school principal in Texas. She’s single officially but, unbeknownst to many, dating the coach and shocks everyone including herself when she agrees to date the school’s janitor, who she hits it off with. Naturally, this brings scandal and questions about the principal’s principles?
Rubn Blades, who played the janitor Ernesto Ontiveros, was nominated for an Emmy in 1992 for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Miniseries or a Special.
"CRAZY FROM THE HEART is a great movie that illustrates aged-old truths about the relationships between men and women, small-town prejudices and ethnic stereotyping. It brings back fond memories of summer evenings spent in Mexico and southern Arizona in the company of wonderful Hispanic friends and it raises social consciousness about how groups are typecast and pigeon-holed, by seemingly innocent methods (like billboard advertisements and job positions.) It is a definite keeper for anyone's video library." - epinions
"I fell in love with this movie the first time I saw it. Somehow it always makes me feel that we can find love and happiness if we are willing to take a few risks. There is a reason this movie has almost all 5-star reviews...you can't help but feel good after you watch it." - SD
"This made-for-TV movie, a delightful romantic comedy, takes us on a marvelous journey of love, personal growth, and spiritual courage. Warm and sympathetic performances by Christine Lahti, the multi-talented Ruben Blades, and William Russ make this marvelous entertainment." - Evergreen
Does the music really start
when you cross
the border to Mexico?
I hope so.
