Critic Reviews for No se aceptan devoluciones (Instructions Not Included)
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.
"Instructions Not Included" is a sweet little movie that is more than it seems to be.
Derbez, even as a debutant filmmaker, shows his solid formation in movies and proves himself as an able narrator. [Full Review in Spanish]
Audience Reviews for No se aceptan devoluciones (Instructions Not Included)
Life doesn't care if you're ready.
Good Film! Excellent performance from Derbez and the little girl. It's one of those movies that you go out happy to have seen! Congratulations to Derbez, great job! Currently the Mexican films are giving very pleasant surprises for the audience, which in many times have not believed in the talent and scope of this new generation of filmmakers, this movie is going to win many awards and you will see that. At first I thought I would see a movie more than the classic that the mother will take away the kids from the father but no, this story is amazing.
Valentin is Acapulco's resident playboy, until a former fling leaves a baby on his doorstep and takes off without a trace. Leaving Mexico for Los Angeles to find the baby's mother, Valentin ends up finding a new home for himself and his newfound daughter, Maggie. An unlikely father figure, Valentin raises Maggie for six years, while also establishing himself as one of Hollywood's top stuntmen to pay the bills, with Maggie acting as his on-set coach. As Valentin raises Maggie, she forces him to grow up too. But their unique and offbeat family is threatened when Maggie's birth mom shows up out of the blue, and Valentin realizes he's in danger of losing his daughter - and his best friend.
It wasn't sure what it wanted to be, and I wasn't sure what it was.
The loving tale of a Spanish man duped by an American woman. Left, single and alone, with their daughter. Now he must face the trials and tribulations of fatherhood while never letting his daughter know the truth. But its when mom resurfaces that everyone faces their greatest adventure. Self discovery.
