Storyline

Dumped by his extremely rich 80-year-old wife for a younger boy-toy after twenty-five years of prosperous marriage, pampered, yet penniless gold-digger Maximo is forced to take matters into his own hands, perhaps for the very first time in his once luxurious life. As a result, the ageing gigolo will have no other choice but to seek shelter with his estranged widowed sister Sara and his 10-year-old nephew Hugo, completely unprepared though for a rude awakening coupled with a big slice of real life on the side. But once a seducer, always a seducer and as spoiled Maximo struggles to squeeze out one decent idea that would throw him back into the arms of yet another fabulously wealthy widow, a new opportunity will appear; one that includes a profitable first-rate tutorship in how to be the perfect Casanova.

Goofs

The opening scene shows a picture of a young Maximo and his family standing together in front of a wall. The picture is stuck to the dashboard of Maximo's father's truck. By the "bouncing" shown in the shot,the truck is obviously suppose to be moving. The next scene shows the father and his truck driving down a road to substantiate that fact. However, when you look at the instruments, there are no amps being drawn, and the coolant temperature gauge is reading down below the lowest end of the cold range, indicating that the truck is not running, as hasn't been.

haters gonna hate

So reading all the negative comments AND all the positive comments (usually the most suspicious due to fake promoting a movie), I decided to see this love/hate reviewed movie for myself.

I have to say it was one of the most funny and entertaining comedies I've seen this year, if not THE funniest! Non stop laughs, all star cast (every actor was amazing!), great story, great directing, and a heartwarming ending.

I have nothing bad to critique about this movie. It was perfect!

I'm shocked at all the hate for Rob Lowe and Salma Hayek! They played their parts perfectly! And Eugenio Derbez was on point! The Spanish translated dialogue added even more comedy to the performances.

I'm not sure what all the negative remarkers were expecting, nor what they are comparing it to make it so bad, but this one is a real winner and I suggest you see it and hopefully give this the higher rating it really deserves to out-weigh the miserable low scores.

10/10 because I can't think of what could have made this movie any better than what it was!
