Derbez is equal parts charismatic and entertaining, while the rest of the talented cast is game for whatever the writers and director send their way.

That is all, it gets you to forget of all bitterness going around while entertaining you for a little while.

Even if this movie is filled with hundreds of Latino cliché, I can assure you that you will have a good time while watching it.

A couple good scenes, but predictable nonetheless.

My wife and I both enjoyed it.

Definitely Worth Watching.

The plot is obviously contrived, and the ending is somewhat predictable.

Truly silly, but fully enjoyable, "How to Be a Latin Lover" hits all the right notes.

It has a rather low IMDb rating and I wasn't expecting much but it surprised me, it is very well made and very entertaining.

I enjoyed it enough that I would probably buy it on DVD.

How to be a latin lover - is just a flat, vulgar, boring comedy and a waste of time.

Very entertaining Rom-Com, Derbez has great comic timing.

Although formulaic, its basic premise is fairly original and enjoyable.

The story is predictable.

My daughter wanted to watch this and the characters and story were so fun and engaging I ended up having a blast.

But he was falling asleep, he crashed into the house as the family members scrambled to safety and went all the way through it.

The negative thing was it predictable screenplay.

There is no story line, just jokes, jokes, bad jokes, and more cheap jokes.

A very entertaining comedy for those in the mood for this type of entertainment.

With a plethora of Hollywood cameos to compensate for its unknown lead, those brief star-studded appearances are the only highlight in this predictable comedy's endless parade of sexist, racist and humorless jokes.

Like most comedies in this genre it's very easy to watch, a little bit cheesy, and very predicatable, but it's still entertaining and that's the only reason we watch a movie like this one.

Enjoyable rental - just be sure to watch with the captions unless you are fluent in Spanish.

It's talented, entertaining fluff.
