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. Written by
A nice bilingual comedy introducing Eugenio Derbez to American audiences starring alongside Selma Hayek and Rahpael Alejandro. Maximo is a gigolo that after twenty five years of marriage finds himself dumped for a younger man. Maximo must move in with his sister and nephew. Along the way he learns important lessons of friendship and family. Bonus points for Rob Lowe as a fellow gigolo and the scene in which he "plays" a cop complete with tear-a-way uniform. Another bit of trivia in the beginning of the film there is a younger Maximo that dives into the pool, that is Eugenio Derbez's twenty five year old son! Enjoyable rental - just be sure to watch with the captions unless you are fluent in Spanish.
