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
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.

Different funny with great characters and a great ending
My daughter wanted to watch this and the characters and story were so fun and engaging I ended up having a blast. Salma is as always superb and lovely. Eugenio was a riot, funny lovable and useless. The story was completely original and very funny which is rare.
Hollywood would like to think they have the corner on the world but truth be told Hollywood is run by the demographic committees. Thats what makes films like this one, so superb. Its just good fun with great characters a little lesson and a perfect ending.
I would even watch it again (don't tell anyone I said that)
