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.Written by

Sometimes, remaking a great foreign film just does not work. This is one case. With such a GREAT, GREAT cast the film had a few fun moments but mostly just sat there and did nothing but have quick witted dialog. When I saw it was directed, written and produced by the same person (never heard of him), I knew that was probably the main problem. It did not matter how charming the actors were - this is a turkey. Some of the sub-plots were just plain stupid. Also agree with the message boards that in this day & age it was very strange not to hire a Mexican to play a Mexican/Latin. The actor was fine & like the others had some charm, but right away, I thought "he doesn't look Mexican".
