While critics hated the movie's willfully goofy humor, audiences swarmed theaters to see the security guard caper, making it an unquestionable box office success. As she has matured, Rodriguez has begun to garner roles in teen productions, like the Disney ensemble dramedy "Prom," in which she plays the encouraging sister of a shy teen boy who is fearful of asking a girl to the big dance. It's a part for which Rodriguez was a natural fit, as in real life she's proven to be an inspiration to her younger brother Rico Rodriquez, who followed in his sister's footsteps and eventually landed a role on the hit sitcom "Modern Family" as the pint-sized poet Manny.
