The film's counterintuitive success is largely due to Derbez, who demonstrates why he is beloved, both south and north of the border.

This sporadically amusing but unduly protracted dramedy devolves into a shameless tearjerker in its third act.

There's a lot of movie here with unexpected developments, held together by the irresistible chemistry between Derbez and his adorable pint-sized co-star.
