An aging "Latin lover" (Eugenio Derbez), whose goal in life was to secure the high-rolling and luxurious lifestyle of a kept man, appeasing every need of his wealthy benefactor, is unceremoniously dumped by his elderly sugar mama.

He finds himself moving back in with his estranged sister (Salma Hayek) and her nerdy son. In an attempt to return to his old ways and get back on his feet, he learns that he doesn’t quite have the appeal he used to. Now he is forced to figure out how to fend for himself in a cruel world not meant for aging lovers.

  • 4 stars "The movie was funny and engaging. We purchased tickets for the English version and unable to see where Theater 20 was located so we saw the movie listed on top of marque for Theater 17 so in error, we went and sat down and waited until the movie started realized it was in Spanish. You know in retrospect, fortunate we both speak three languages with Spanish being one of them . I bargain to say it was even better in Spanish. It captured the essence of the kept man's persona, chenanigans ., and great lengths he engaged in to capture another wealthy elderly woman that would be his next free ticket to the lavish lifestyle he was accustomed to. It was a good and entertaining movie. I recommend it ! ??????"
