J-Lo Booed at Berlinale

Jennifer Lopez's indie movie " Bordertown" was NOT received well at the Berlin International Film Festival. In fact, the audience booed the film and showed no love to J-Lo, who appeared to be visibly upset. Some German reporters expressed concern that the film is coming out at the same time as her new album. In Bordertown, (director Gregory Nava) Lopez plays a reporter investigating a series of murders in the Mexican city of Ciudad Juarez.

However the film is also "pretty distasteful" at the same time: the critic accuses J-Lo of exploiting the real suffering of the Mexican women in order to become a star in the Central American market.
