Storyline

Rachel is an intelligent, modern-day woman constantly on the move. Primarily focused on her career as a diplomatic consul for the U.S. embassy, she's literally lived her life on the move, globe-trotting from city to city. Currently working in Mexico City and set to leave for London, Rachel's world turns upside down on the eve of her own goodbye party when she gets drunk and passes out on the street. Saved by Alejandro, a handsome Mariachi singer and single father, Rachel wakes up in his apartment with no recollection of how she got there. Nor does she remember that she rejected his visa the day before, which he desperately needs for his daughter. Romance unexpectedly blossoms between the two, but either sparks or fists will fly after she finds out his secret. Written by Pantelion Films

Dumb
13 December 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This movie is really dumb. It is your typical romantic comedy where you can tell everything that is going to happen long before it happens. There are good versions of those movies and bad versions depending on if there are any good twists and mostly if the comedy/performances are funny. The guy in this is awful. I assume the positive reviews here are by cast or crew because this movie is not very good at all. Maybe friends and family are posting good reviews to help out. The movie isn't worth seeing. Bad jokes, bad characters, bad writing. Nothing special about this film at all. The girl is all right but nobody has much to work with here. The lead guy like I said is super annoying but I'm not sure if it's the bad character or bad acting or both.
