No special expectations for about the Comedy film with elements of family melodrama "How to be a Latin lover" is not initially it. And even the name-brand Salma Hayek, as stated in the title credits, not have been tested, and it's that after the wedding, a stunning Mexican girl, which many remember for outstanding dance in the film "From dusk till the dawn", chose a popular movie as original as examples — "Everly", "September in Shiraz" "Beatrice for dinner", which is found rare connoisseur of such a film (though in"the Bodyguard, killer," she has reminded itself in all mighty glory of charisma). And the name of the main actor — Eugenio Derbes — none at all what not said (but it was interesting to learn that he was first husband of Victoria Ruffo, who became a Megastar in our country after the series "Simply Maria"). But with all the skeptical mood I, unexpectedly for itself, found a positive grain. And more on that later.

From the very beginning "How to be a Latin lover" got me all twisted that way: banal gags level nursery period spoke only of the weaknesses of the film. The main character name MAXIMO (Derbez) with youth dreams of just about one — become a professional gigolo, it is the age to find a passion, at least the desire and ability to meet its needs, and all other time to be idle rascal. Have Maxim is turned out, but also have to know yourself here is MAXIMO with a minimum of things for the door of the luxurious mansion, his passion has left him a younger opponent. Nothing is able to do MAXIMO is looking for some time under the roof of head and finds refuge in his sister's house (Hayek), living with son. MAXIMO with all its immediacy and outright stupidity makes a lot of mistakes, until recognizes fact that is a family and what it means to love those who are close to you.

Yes, the beginning of "How to be a Latin lover" — this is pure "slag" (sorry for the slang), but then comes a pleasant metamorphosis from plot by genre — from the silliest comedies, everything turns into a melisinou philosophical sense of melodrama of family type. Gradually, you already feel a fierce hostility to stereotyped and even caricatured MAXIMO, and I wish finally to him to wipe his eyes (metaphorically) and realize it's time to stop being selfish and a narcissist and, in the end, embark on the right way, because the sister and especially her son, then a nephew MAXIMO, give it what he never know why not understand — the warmth, love and focus. To unfortunately, the creators of "How to be a Latin lover" is not was to bring laid out in the essence of the picture the eternal values to the effect of excited, but at least they tried not dumped the film in a lot of carelessness and bad taste.

Unknown to me hitherto Eugenio Derbez pleased with the fact that are not engaged in the entire film is a masterpiece, and did the image of his character as possible multi-faceted, as is allowed the genre of the film. You could even say that Derbez has created a tragicomic character, and it is a complex task and this must be taken into account. By the way, Derbez has proven himself a good writer — it the assets of such films as "Instructions not included" and"2+1". Salma Hayek is not did his heroine sexy beauty, and played clearly for written in scenario, character, and did it, I must say, very good. I liked the young Raphael Alejandro, that the nephew Maxim. Funny this from him "nerd" turned out, and the scene when the newly-minted uncle it was taught the basics of "machismo" — the most fun. Among the actors on supporting roles in itself, pay attention to Rob low Kristen bell. But if lo has already ruined his career and nothing special in the "How to be a Latin lover" is not remember that bell was pleased with way good-natured and outspoken saleswoman-cat-lady.

In General, put much higher rating of "How to be a Latin lover," I can still misses there they are tangible, they are especially noticeable the beginning. However, then the creators have gone on the way to remedy and gave a good romance family type where you can get some clear advice how not to do, but if did, how to correct their own mistakes. Frankly, I prepared for worse, and not received a bad film, where are not without of morality. Well and to watch Ali to watch "How to be a Latin lover" — this solution is only for You.
