HOW TO BE A LATIN LOVER
About The Production
"This is who I'm going to be," says young Maximo, looking at an ad featuring
the luxurious image of a regal, older man next to a beautiful, bejeweled younger
"He didn't get that rich without having a job," responds his little sister Sara.
A determined Maximo answers, "I don't want his job. I want hers."
Growing up in a loving family in Mexico, Maximo (Eugenio Derbez) was nurtured to
become like any other young boy in this world, but with one, small difference.
He dreamed he would never, ever have to work hard for anything in this life. And
for 25 years, he succeeded, perfecting his skills of seduction and romance to
secure his ultimate goal: to marry a rich, older woman, one who would pay his
way to secure the finest things he felt he deserved. Yet, Maximo never banked on
the day when that dream would become a nightmare. The day that his loving, rich,
now much older wife would trade him for a much younger model.
Cast out on the street, Maximo loses his kept life and home and is forced to
reconnect to a world of reduced circumstances, turning to his estranged younger
sister Sara (Salma Hayek) and her 10- year-old son Hugo (Raphael Alejandro).
When the opportunity presents itself to help his nerdy nephew gain the attention
of a cute and wealthy schoolmate, Maximo schemes to unleash his skills to secure
the attention of the girl's very hot, billionaire grandmother Celeste (Raquel
Welch). Armed with his best Speedo and sexiest walk, Maximo sets to restore his
privileged existence. However, what this incorrigible Latin lover doesn't know
is that he's about to discover when it comes to family and matters of the heart,
the best things in life are truly free.
