Gloria finds a power she never knew she had when she is drawn into a dangerous world of cross-border crime. Surviving will require all of her cunning, inventiveness, and strength. Based on the Spanish-language film.
Alright, I need to start this out keeping it real:
Yes, this movie can be cringey at times, absolutely.
However, it was still a great time.
If you want something poignant, heartfelt and wonderful-this isn't what you're looking for.
It does have a lot more heart though than a lot of these folks are giving it credit for.
Those who are outraged that her character is a total a-hole: that is the point!! The point is, to take a total jerk and help them to transform into a better person while they embark on an absurd journey. It totally delivers there. For every not so great moment, there are several great ones to make up for it. I don't often prefer to spend my money on a full priced ticket unless it's horror or a guaranteed slam dunk but it was our Galentine's celebration and I found it to be worth it. If you're unsure, I recommend waiting for the discount theatre or dvd but don't count it out because some haven't seen Baby Boy and had no idea Taraji can cuss like a sailor! And don't cheat yourself out of the Brandon experience! He is fantastic! This may not be Oscar gold but it's a darn good time. Trust me, I wouldn't lead you astray.
