The movie boasts an understated sweetness, largely fueled by Camil's movie-star charms. He's the kind of performer who doesn't have to work hard to win over an audience; he is instantly likable. In a movie like this, that's money in the bank.

This entertaining crossover vehicle for Mexican star Jaime Camil sets a familiar love story to a mariachi beat.

Serving mostly as a strong calling card for star Jaime Camil, the film has an appealingly loose, slightly ramshackle charm.

This bilingual romantic comedy is overly long and has a paper-thin plot, but it's too sweet-natured to dislike.

Sweet subtitled romcom hinges on night of drinking.

Pulling Strings isn't particularly sharp as either a comedy or a romance.

A bilingual romantic comedy hopes to bridge the ties with a crossover audience, but has only the charm of the leading man going for it.

No new ground is broken here, but when a formula entertainer goes through its motions with as much sweet sincerity as it does here, that point is rendered moot.

Subtlety and surprise are thrown out the window in this far-fetched Mexican romantic comedy.

Ultimately, the film is absolutely charming if a bit too predictable and glued more to sit-com narrative strategies and aesthetics than is healthy. Still, Pulling Strings works on a number of levels.

Every bit as bad as most Hollywood romantic comedies.

Cute Mexico City mariachi-flavored romance hampered by a tepid story and weak chemistry between the leads.
