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.

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.

Surprisingly good...
15 April 2019 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

I stumbled upon "How to Be a Latin Lover" on Netflix while perusing their comedy section. I hadn't heard about the movie before, nor had I any idea who was in it. But still, the movie caught my attention and I gave it a go.

Turned out that "How to Be a Latin Lover" was actually quite entertaining and funny to watch. Sure, you'll not be laughing throughout the entire course of the movie, but there are some good wholehearted and hardy laughs to be had and the storyline in the movie was really surprisingly good.

And it definitely helped that the movie had such a strong and talented ensemble of actors and actresses. This was my first time to get acquainted with Eugenio Derbez, but I will say that he really carried the movie phenomenally. And he had some great help from the likes of Salma Hayek, Rob Lowe and Kristen Bell. Actually, the entire movie was crammed with familiar faces and famous performers, which was surprisingly nice to see for a movie such as this. I will also say that Salma Hayek really brought a lot of charm to the movie with her talent and on-screen presence.

"How to Be a Latin Lover", while it is not a classic in the comedy genre, definitely proved to be entertaining and fun to watch. I was genuinely entertained by the movie and had some good laughs along the way. Hardly a movie I will watch a second time though, because the movie didn't have all that much to offer once you've seen it the first time.

Definitely worth watching if you enjoy a good, wholeheartedly comedy with a heartfelt story as well.
