Very funny and entertaining. Love the script and acting. Many all-star cameos...Laughed out loud several times!
Used closed caption as the dialogue mixes and interplays quickly between Spanish and English.

Silly and funny - Salma Hayek can sing!

Often funny and sweet but needed better editing to cut out the many obvious gags (I lost count of how many times people were slapped or hit it the head) and other jokes that ran too long.

Thought this would be a lot bigger time waster than it was. There were a lot of laughs, and the main actor was excellent. It's worth it if you're in need of a laugh.

A trophy husband found himself replaced by a younger model after 25 years marriage. Thanks to the prenup, he was reduced to take shelter in a tiny apartment with his younger sister, a widowed single mom. Soon he learned the harsh reality that he was no longer a young, sexy and desirable object for sugar mommies. Meanwhile, his unctuous attempts to be a responsible brother and uncle resulted in embarrassments. The adult humor of male gold diggers and man-child were often hilarious but obnoxious if not worrisome in the tutelage of the boy to become sexy. Last, found the ending exploitative and failed to be uplifting as intended. In sum, a fun watch but with sadness beneath all the laughs. In contrast, enjoyed the non-stop LOLs thirty odd minutes of deleted/extended scenes (particularly the extended “Sexy Walk,” “Weird Al’s full performance” and “Scars, road map of our lives”) in extras because they were just very funny without any pretense other than a comedy spoof.

Maximo is flawed, but thoroughly lovable and hilarious. All actors are really willing to cut loose and make complete fools of themselves. It's a good time for all!

I loved this movie. It was funny. I knew Derbez & Kristen Bell had some comedic chops but the surprise was Rob Lowe and Salma Hayek. I would recommend it.

This movie is very funny, and since I speak Spanish, it was even more entertaining! I laughed out loud so many times, which doesn't happen very often. It's a movie your whole family can enjoy.

Surprisingly funny and like-able. We enjoyed it - don't listen to the critics on this one. They think a comedy has to be done by Woody Allen to be any good. If you hate Woody Allen, you'll really like this.

If you are not already a Derbez fan (and you really should be) this will convert you. An 8-year-old boy decide he wants to be a rich woman's arm candy, but when his wife, who is 30 years older than he is takes up with a man 30 years younger than he is, there is no where for him to turn except to his hardworking sister. He discovers his nephew, starts looking for his next sugar mama, and makes a mess of his sister's tidy life. Wonderful supporting cast, lots of laughs, some excellent cringe and shudder scenes, and some deeply self-searching moments that Derbez is a genius at driving home--straight into the audience's hearts.

Only 4 short quotes in IMDb, here's more:
Papa always said that you get what you work for, not what you wish for.
-And look what happened to him!
After I gave her my best years, after I gave her my youth, after I gave her the best of me! Of course, now that my boobs have sagged, she finds someone younger than me.
Did you dye your hair?
- Yep! All of it. I gave myself a little makeover.
Maybe next time they can make over your brain.
I had a chance to be a part of a family, and I ruined it.
-I don't think you ruined it, because it's never too late to make it right. "Catta" do what you "catta" do.
"You can't live your life afraid that something bad will happen, because then you really never lived. "
-Where did you hear that?
Uncle Maximo.

You're not attracted to me?
- Not at all. No, I'm attracted to, like, really good looking guys. Guys with, like, great faces and great bodies, who are muscular and handsome, and younger, much younger than you, and tall- a lot taller. But that's just me.
But then... why did you give me the job?
-I think I'm just drawn to helping less fortunate, damaged, sad, sad, sad, sad creatures.
We're family!
-No. You're not family. You're nothing more than a lazy 46 year old freeloader, who doesn't think of anyone but himself. ... You stole his hopes. You stole his dreams. But it ends now. You will never use me or Hugo again, understood?
I'm 39.
You said I'm 46, but I'm 39.
-No, you're not.
Of course I am.
- Hell no!
Of course I am.
- But I'm 42!
So what?
- You're my older brother!
You know, the McLarens are like snowflakes, in that no two are ever the same.
