Storyline

Kate Sullivan is a single mom of three daughters who works two jobs while studying to be a nurse. She is assigned to clean carpets on a yacht owned by spoiled, arrogant playboy Leonardo 'Leo' Montenegro. Leo makes rude remarks towards Kate and fires her without pay when she refuses to bring him food. When Kate calls out his behavior, Leo pushes her off the boat along with her cleaning equipment. Meanwhile, in Mexico, Leo's sisters Magdalena and Sofia are tending to their ailing father. Furious when Leo is announced as his successor to run the family-owned company, Magda decides to visit him. That night, Leo slips off the yacht and falls into the ocean unnoticed. He wakes up on a beach with amnesia and no recollection of his identity. He wanders through town and eventually reaches the hospital. Magda finds him and leaves him there unclaimed after learning he has amnesia. She returns home and falsely reports that Leo has died. Sofia suspects Magda is lying..

Mildly entertaining
20 July 2018 | by desmondlewissmithSee all my reviews

I think a lot of the reviews are pretty harsh. I'll admit, this movie was not a top end high rated movie, but it was still an entertaining movie with a predictable outcome. I didn't hate this movie. You typical story with an antagonist and a protagonist. You shift from hating the antagonist to loving the antagonist... blah blah blah.... if you go into this movie with an open mind, you can enjoy what it provides. Anna Farris does a great job of portraying her typical personality. I've always been a fan of Eugenio Derbez, and think he did equally well carrying his role. Eva Longoria played a small role, but did very well as a supporting actress. If I was asked to watch or pass, I'd say watch.
