Go To
Niñas Mal, released in the United States under the title Charm School, is a 2007 Mexican movie about Adela León (Martha Higareda), the rebelious teenager daughter of a politician. Since her behaviour is ruining his political career, his father decides to send her to an boarding school in which she will learn to behave like a lady. Mayhem of all kinds ensues while she's on the school. When she comes out, it gets even worse.

This film provides examples of:

  • Chekhov's Gunman: Valentina's uncle, the priest. he's the bishop. Dodged when she fails to get his help.
  • Female Gaze: Four of the five girls do this about Emiliano.
  • First-Name Basis: The girls refering to Macarena as Macarena would already be quite upfront for Mexican customs to adress an elder woman. Shortening it to Maca borders in disrespectful, but she doesn't mind.
