Storyline

Don and Ellie were once married and have two children, Lyla and Jared. They adopt a boy from Colombia, Alejandro. Eventually they would divorce, Ellie would move away and Don would hook up with Bebe, Ellie's best friend. When Alejandro is about to get married, he informs Don and Ellie that he never told his natural mother who is so traditional that they got divorced. And she is coming for the wedding so he asks them if they can pretend to still be married. Don and Ellie reluctantly agree to it and Bebe moves out who is also upset that Don doesn't want to commit. Lyla who is married is going through a rough patch in her marriage. And Jared who hasn't had much luck with women finds himself attracted to Alejandro's extremely sensual sister, Nuria.

Absolutely terrible
29 April 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

For full disclosure, I don't like these kind of movies. I only watch them when my wife asks me too. While I don't like these kinds of movies, there have been movies like this that while I did not enjoy, I could see why it was a good movie, be it in the script, acting, story, etc., so I am not totally biased.

That being said, this movie sucked. Yes, most movies are fiction, but there has to be some sort of believability with the plot and interactions among the characters. This had none of that. It was a bad script along with unfunny sex jokes. I know I know, I must be a prude because I didn't find the sex jokes funny right? Ehh wrong. People like to say: "you are prude/offended if you didn't find the sex/racist jokes funny." I read it all the time. The bottom line is that they just weren't funny. It had nothing to do with the subject matter, it was just lack of thought and effort.
