Movie Review!

Today’s movie review is “How To Be A Latin Lover.” Molly and I saw it last weekend while we were at Disneyland. We weren’t really sure about it before we went in, but after we saw it, I’m glad we did. I guess you could call it a romantic comedy? I mean, there was love and there was comedy – just maybe not like you would think about it.

Anyhow, here’s the plot. It starts out with a family somewhere in South America. Or Mexico. Or the Caribbean. Anyhow, there’s a mom and a dad and a son and a daughter. The dad is driving home (he’s a truck driver) and he falls asleep and smashes into the family home and it all blows up, including the dad. The mom and son and daughter survive. The daughter wants to grow up and design houses and the son wants to grow up and have a sugar momma – in other words, be taken care of.

Flash forward and the son is a pool boy at a resort. He’s looking for a sugar momma. And he finds one in an older American lady.

Flash forward and the son has married the rich lady and is living the rich life. While he was a hot body when he was young, he’s kinda let himself go. He goes to buy his wife an anniversary car, and his wife tells him she wants a divorce to marry the young car salesman.

The rest of the movie is about the jilted husband trying to make a new life – and find a new sugar momma. He moves in with his sister (who is an struggling architect) and her young son and learns how to be a decent human being.

It’s a sweet little movie and you don’t have to have a pad and pencil to follow the plot (I’m looking at you, Guardians of the Galaxy). At the end, it all works out happily ever after and you can leave feeling good about things.
Blessings today include: catching up at home on all things
