Valentina has the perfect life in America. Her universe trembles when Jason, her boyfriend, proposes marriage and she must confront her family, the Hidalgo, the most chaotic and surreal political dynasty in the history of Mexico.
Valentina and Jason live quiet, peaceful lives in New York City. They go on runs, take strolls on beautiful days and enjoy one another's company. Until one day, Jason pops the question and Valentina must return to Mexico to break the news to her family, the infamous Hidalgos..
I saw this movie on Valentines day with my Peruvian wife. The movie captions the non-english parts, which is great for those of us who know some Spanish. As for the plot, it had a twist, but nothing unexpected. The cast does a good job of playing their parts and my favorite character had to be the father, who had great facial expressions.
While some of the jokes were lost on me, there was always a lot going on to keep you occupied. There were also some political tie-ins where you could see connections to the politics of 2017 and the US president.
There wasn't a lot of detail about how the main goal was achieved, so I would suggest ignoring it and just going along for the ride.
