Critic Reviews for How to Be a Latin Lover

All Critics (26) | Top Critics (8)

OK, so it will never be mistaken for vintage Pedro Almodovar or Bigas Luna, but the feel-good satire How to Be a Latin Lover nevertheless gives you less cause to be a hater than you might have expected.

Derbez brings warmth and intermittent goofy humor to this too-broad and uneven comedy. The best moments are between him and co-stars Salma Hayek and young Raphael Alejandro, who both have an easy chemistry with Derbez.

Top Critic

Surprisingly deft in mixing Mr. Derbez's broad but accomplished style with more ostensibly hip-absurdist Anglo modes of humor.

Its humor is broad, but most of the jokes work for the intended audience - with a few even breaking through to more resistant viewers.

April 28, 2017 | Full Review…

How to Be a Latin Lover doesn't know how to be a comedy-at least not a 21st century one that can get away with dopey double entendres while promoting the importance of family ties over money.

April 28, 2017 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

How To Be A Latin Lover is basically an Adam Sandler movie without the Happy Madison shingle.

Audience Reviews for How to Be a Latin Lover


How to Be a Latin Lover is just like all those movies that have previously failed in the box office. Not worth watching and looking forward by its visuals this movie gives us. I think if there's numerous attempts for a film to end up this soggy and, for some weird reason, clichéd. If you literally want to watch this, unfortunately for you, you won't get much of the fun found in this film.
