Daily Film Forum writes, "A poured-in her-dress Lagos mimicking a flaky game show hostess as she introduces new locations for Hell is sexy and hilarious at the same time."
Time Square Gossip says, ""His love interest, Penelope Lagos, is the fun-loving, beautiful, strip-club waitress (“I’m not a stripper”) Tori LaSalle. Lagos has great chemistry with Ortega and proves to be the whole package as she handles the comedy with ease and also provides the film with its romantic drama."
"STUCK IN THE MIDDLE" REVIEWS
Daily Film Forum raves, "The sexy Penelope Lagos lights up the screen and plays Fontana’s straight man to perfection (with some great one-liners of her own)...This is one of the best independent films I have seen in years."

James Edstrom states, "The object of Michael's affection is prank loving Brooke Lynne Monroe (beautiful newcomer Penelope Lagos) and together they try to stop the evil Todd Levy who is trying to buy Purgatory and close it down so he can build condos for rich "Heaveners."... Fontana and Lagos have a good chemistry and as their relationship grows with every new prank and all night drinking sessions, you find yourself rooting for the lovable loser and flirtatious beauty all the way up to the surprise ending."
Time Square Gossip acclaims, "The ensemble cast was very strong with everyone getting a moment to shine... Penelope Lagos plays his beautiful love interest and radiates off the screen like a starlet. When Fontana claims to have a swimmer’s body, Lagos' lightening quick response of “Yeah, Shamu” was timed and delivered like a true film comedian.
"MADCAP MABEL" REVIEWS
Anastasios Papapostolou (Hollywood Greek Reporter) says, "Playing the lead is Greek Actress Penelope Lagos, who not only resembles Mabel Normand, but whose acting ability literally embodies the role. Ironically, Penelope previously played “Thalia” the Greek Muse of Comedy for the sitcom pilot “Muse” which was screened at HBO last year. Her comedic skills and timing are what gave producers the idea to star her as Mabel."
