Storyline

Dumped by his filthy rich octogenarian wife for a younger toy-boy after twenty-five years of prosperous marriage, the pampered and now penniless gold-digger, Maximo, finds himself with his back to the wall. Forced to take matters into his own hands, perhaps for the very first time in his once-luxurious life, the ageing gigolo will have no other choice but to swallow his pride and seek shelter in the small house of his estranged widowed sister, Sara, and his ten-year-old nephew, Hugo. However, Maximo is utterly unprepared for the 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 to seduce yet another fabulously wealthy widow, a new window of opportunity appears; one that includes a profitable first-rate tutorship in how to be the perfect Casanova. Can a leopard change its spots? 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.

Truly silly, but fully enjoyable, "How to Be a Latin Lover" hits all the right notes. Eugenio Derbez plays a Mexican who marries a rich woman from Beverly Hills, only to get dumped years later with no money and no idea how to work. Moving in with his hard-working sister (Salma Hayek), he quickly learns that there's something to be said for pulling one's weight...which in this guy's case means some truly awkward things! The movie also takes the time to poke fun at lazy rich people who spend their money on extravagant things (such as a birthday party featuring a certain satirical singer). But mostly, it's just an excuse to have fun. I suspect that they had a lot of fun filming it. The rest of the cast includes Kristen Bell, Raquel Welch, and former "Daily Show" correspondents Rob Corddry and Rob Riggle.
