*** This review may contain spoilers ***
I only put spoiler alert because it is so simply obvious that the movie
attempts to telegraph what's about to happen.
Juliana does a stellar job with facial expressions and sincerity, especially since her lines were apparently written by a 10 year old. A number of times, just when the movie appears to be making sense and following an understandable path, it slides off into tired and confusing situations.
While I personally like movies with surprises, this one is surprising only in that it simply can't make any sense.
If you have Netflix, and it doesn't cost to watch streaming, and you have housework to do, it might do for white noise, otherwise, don't bother.

Juliana Paes is a sizzling Brazilian actress and this movie plays to
her strengths without crossing over into nudity. Sometimes Juliana is
preening for effect and at other times she manages to inject some heart
and compassion into her lines.
Dean Cain does his best to support Paes. He is supposed to look like a typical man who is overly impressed by the sexy lady and therefore looks a little clumsy. In the romantic moments he holds up his end but doesn't shine.
It is a pleasant enough love story and of course we know how it has to end. There are really no twists or surprises.
However the ending doesn't totally make sense since it never explains how Ana will get the money she needs to pay her debt, but who knows, maybe the place is worth enough to mortgage it. Also, she leaves abruptly and must still think that Jake is making up to his wife and that she may no longer be the ex, but Ana comes back anyway. Maybe we are supposed to believe she came back for love of the countryside.
It's a romance story, so those frequently don't make sense.
Sorry folks - this movie is written for immature eight grade boys. The whole movie revolves around kissing scenes and staring at the parts of the lead actress. I am surprised that Dean Cain took the role of this cheesy low rent movie. I would not waste your time, unless you are an immature eight grade boy, but even then with all the other films out there - you too would be bored.I am not quite sure why they make movies like this one, unless they have a quota or something. I guess it was supposed to be funny and cute, so if you only had two choices and the other one was reruns of The Andy Griffith Show - I would watch Andy, Opie, and Barney - much more entertaining.
Not good, not dreadful . Bad editing and performances to a storyline with promise. Still watched and in a strange way , enjoyed. Two main characters did not hit it off on screen but both were not bad. Still worth a view if not paying for it. The problem is the editing and the beginning in two languages. It makes it disjointed .belief is most important in any movie. This does not have it. It has all the components but not the glue to join it up. It's a pity because I wanted to smile, laugh and wish the main characters well in the adventure.the backdrop was right. The mobiles seemed to work but the camera failed to deliver.
Come on. I kind known to strike the film Brazil, because, despite having HD quality and everything else is amateur, has the most expensive advertising and novel than the movie. Movie film is that the U.S. (and the rest of the world) uses. And to prove that this movie was perfect: the transition of the footage from the U.S. to Brazil there is a clear difference, professional vs. amateur image. Marcio Garcia hit the partnership made a simple and predictable movie, but well done (except for the Japanese scenes that are not thrown that way in public, and the final scene of Márcio that apparently needed to make merchan shampoo). While they are talking about, I enjoyed this romantic comedy. At least had a plot with a beginning, middle and end, and unlike many Brazilian films. I'm a fan of American movies, not like the movies Brazil. But I firmly believe that if you pay attention to this detail of the film would already be half way for me to start to change their minds. Pity that few people realize - and cares.
Dean Cain brightens up anything he's in, but he couldn't save this
poorly written mess.
There was an idea here with some potential. However, evidently the writer was a 10 year old who has never been out of the house. Virtually no one's actions in the film ring true. There is a lot of law involved, and none of it is even CLOSE to being right. Situations that the writer and director hoped would be zany and funny are just contrived and awkward.
Characters who are meant to be funny caricatures are just annoying. Bill Engvall is completely wasted. Eric Roberts is tragically miscast as a gay hotel reviewer. Juliana Paes seems uncomfortable and insincere in most of her scenes. Julia Duffy is underused.
This film is a waste of everyone's time.
Pseudoactor and TV presenter, Marcio Garcia directs his first feature film. The film lacks script, directing and acting. The last scene - a displaced product placement - in which Mr Garcia acts is something to be remembered - because it is the most embarrassing moment in the recent film history. Juliana Paes is very famous in Brazil because she played an Indian in a soap opera, and Dean Cain (Dean who?) is virtually unknown after his superman TV show was canceled so many years ago. The movie was one of the biggest BO disappointments last year in Brazil - thanks heaven people still have sense. Because of that it is a shock that Mr GArcia found anyone to put money in a new film.
