How to Be a Latin Lover Reviews

May 6, 2020
How to Be A Latin Lover feels like an attempt to tick every box on a demographic chart, and in the process of attempting to please everyone, it short changes so much.

It's definitely on an Adam Sandler level of humor.

Films like this, for more records that they break, respect, dignity and creative openness, diminish us more than what they bring us. [Full Review in Spanish]

The result is stupid, self-conscious, but stupid after all. [Full review in Spanish]

It will be enjoyable to Eugenio Derbez fans but puts a rope around the Mexican comedian, about if he will dare once and for all to empty his talent into something more risky. [Full review in Spanish]

A horrible mess full of clichs and jokes that feel worn, despite the efforts of Eugenio Derbez to make them work. [Full review in Spanish]

A film that aims to offer escapism and reaffirmation to Latinos in the United States, but instead reinforces harmful stereotypes. [Full review in Spanish]

How to Be a Latin Lover reads like a watered-down version of something frequent Marino collaborator David Wain might have done. Very watered-down. Like five parts Wain to fifteen parts water. Which is better than I expected, if less than I wanted.

Eventually, the premise weakens and the humor rests on the tortilla slaps that Hayek gives to Derbez. How to be a Latin Lover doesn't meet the expectations. [Full review in Spanish]

Focused primarily to entertain the Latino population living in the United States, it's worrying that a public so noble and hungry for references to connect to the country that they probably can't return to, receive such product. [Full review in Spanish]

A film about the importance of family ties made with good intentions but with a limited technique. [Full review in Spanish]

Derbez, packed into an English-language comedy, gets upstaged by assorted Hollywood funnymen and women in this limply-plotted, slow-footed farce.

How to make a lousy comedy
April 28, 2017
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
The life lessons about valuing family over money aren't delivered with much subtlety, but there are a few solid laughs.
April 28, 2017
It's all so broadly painted and played that you half-expect to hear a canned laugh track accompanying the jokes. (Full Content Review for Parents - Sexual Content, Profanity, etc. - also Available)

Starting off as a strained farce before segueing into a sappy family film, "How to Be a Latin Lover" has its likeable, goofy moments, although it is consistently undercut by a main character who is very difficult to love.
April 28, 2017
How To Be A Latin Lover is basically an Adam Sandler movie without the Happy Madison shingle.

I like everyone connected with this movie so much that I am especially sorry to give it a bad review.
