Algo Azul borders on unbearable. When a dressmaker realizes she has swapped wedding dresses on two customers, shouldn't the dressmaker who made the error straighten the problem out? Instead, one hysterical customer accosts the stranger walking off with her dress and chaos ensues. Not a good way to make friends and influence people. This idiocy sets off the movie's many other utterly implausible developments, and makes it more and more exasperating and less and less fun to watch. The lead character is prone to debilitating hysterics and overreactions to life's obstacles.

Other questions arise. Would a woman who wants her $20,000 wedding dress back really try to tear it off of someone else? The movie might have been near watchable if the tendency to make multiple terrible decisions was limited to only one character, but here all seem bent on acting against their own best interests. Does that create dramatic tension, or just audience frustration?
