All Critics (40) | Top Critics (19)

Elvira, Sol, and Jimena -- named for women in the life of El Cid -- are so spoiled and blind to their mother's happiness that they're often thoroughly unpleasant.

A sometimes cloying mix of screwball comedy and drama.

Less side-splitting than a sad reminder of the past.

Offers some pleasures along the way, including an engaging performance by Leonor Watling.

Despite the promise of its title, this is a movie that skirts the issues of gay relationships at every turn.

Audience Reviews for My Mother Likes Women (A mi madre le gustan las mujeres)

I'm surprised that this didn't receive more appreciation from the users. Here we have an elderly mom who has fallen in love with a woman rather than another man...and boy do her daughters react. I thought it was fascinating to see the diverse reactions and the actors clearly having fun exploring their characters.
