Selena

Genre: Musical, Drama; Starring: John Seda, Jennifer Lopez, Edward James Olmos, Constance Marie, Jacob Vargas; Director: Gregory Nava; Author: Gregory Nava; Runtime (in minutes): 127; MPAA Rating: PG; Distributor: Warner Bros.

Remember when you barely knew who Jennifer Lopez was — before Puffy, before Gigli, before the baby rumors? That’s the J. Lo on display in Selena, which marks her star-making role with a 10th-anniversary two-disc set. Besides a (barely) extended version, the real bonuses are a pair of featurettes focusing on the film’s production and the slain Tejano singer’s family. Both maintain the good-natured, slightly corny tone that makes the movie itself such a treat. B+
