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.

How To Be A Lousy Movie
25 May 2017 | by See all my reviews

Beginning with the ridiculously stupid opening scene, this movie drags on to become nothing more than two torturous hours of lame, simple-minded, disconnected gags ('pull my finger' ha, ha, ha) strung together to form an even lamer simpler-minded plot, if it can be called that.

This kind of low-brow crap is all the likes of Rob Lowe can qualify for, but it was sad to see Salma Hayek and the venerable and iconic Raquel Welch stoop to this low a level. Didn't they read the script before they signed?

The kid was cute, and there actually was ONE funny gag (that did not involve any of the main players nor the 'plot' - which probably explains why it was funny) about mid-way. But neither of these made enduring the nonstop inane-ness of everything else worth it.

The other reviews, which I made the huge mistake of relying on, are nothing more than a shameless shill-fest.
