Movie Info

There's trouble in paradise for Dennis (Donald Woods) and his bride, Carmelita (Lupe Velez). Returning to New York City from their Mexican honeymoon, the newlyweds face hostility from Dennis's snobbish aunt, Della (Elisabeth Risdon), and his ex-girlfriend, Elizabeth (Linda Hayes). Then there's Lord Epping (Leon Errol), a British aristocrat Dennis needs to please for a business contract, who just happens to look like Dennis' wacky Uncle Matt (also Errol) -- a likeness that results in mayhem.

Audience Reviews for Mexican Spitfire

  • May 08, 2018
    Pros: - Lupe Velez is a bundle of energy, and brings some diversity which has always been lacking in Hollywood. - Leon Errol's dual performance as the uncle and the British businessman, which includes the uncle dressing up as the businessman and small differences in how he played it, is well done. Also, his combative relationship with his wife (Elisabeth Risdon) is funny in just how far they go to get on each other's nerves. Cons: - It's a screwball comedy so one doesn't expect the plot to be airtight or anything, but the story gets so silly that at some point I found myself thinking, 'this is just stupid', and hoping for it to end. - Despite the attempts at zaniness, there isn't much that's original here, from the marriage the aunt wants to break up, to the impersonation (of course the real guy soon shows up), to the cake fight at the end (ok, it's not pie but...), etc - Donald Woods is as bland as a piece of cardboard. - As the second in a series of films, 8 total from 1939-1943(!), with the first actually being 'The Girl from Mexico', this one already has that retread / sequel feeling. I'll go back and watch the first, but not the next six.
