Storyline

Dumped by his extremely rich 80-year-old wife for a younger boy-toy after twenty-five years of prosperous marriage, pampered, yet penniless gold-digger Maximo is forced to take matters into his own hands, perhaps for the very first time in his once luxurious life. As a result, the ageing gigolo will have no other choice but to seek shelter with his estranged widowed sister Sara and his 10-year-old nephew Hugo, completely unprepared though for a rude awakening coupled with a big slice of real life on the side. But once a seducer, always a seducer and as spoiled Maximo struggles to squeeze out one decent idea that would throw him back into the arms of yet another fabulously wealthy widow, a new opportunity will appear; one that includes a profitable first-rate tutorship in how to be the perfect Casanova. Written by Nick Riganas

Goofs

The opening scene shows a picture of a young Maximo and his family standing together in front of a wall. The picture is stuck to the dashboard of Maximo's father's truck. By the "bouncing" shown in the shot,the truck is obviously suppose to be moving. The next scene shows the father and his truck driving down a road to substantiate that fact. However, when you look at the instruments, there are no amps being drawn, and the coolant temperature gauge is reading down below the lowest end of the cold range, indicating that the truck is not running, as hasn't been.

Quotes

Maximo: I can teach you to use your skills of seduction to get what you want.

was excited to watch this as the trailer was funny.....low IMDb rating got me doubting whether i should go to the movie hall for this...glad i went. it was very funny, well scripted, well acted and not one of those over the top weird obscene comedies...theater was a mix of elder people, kids, adults and everyone laughed throughout the movie....it had genuine humor and good emotional content too... cast was great, salma hayek is a delight to watch , the kid who played her son was so cute, brother sister relationship was well crafted, ...i left the hall smiling...
