Critic Reviews for My Mother Likes Women (A mi madre le gustan las mujeres)

All Critics (38) | Top Critics (17)

Elvira, Sol, and Jimena -- named for women in the life of El Cid -- are so spoiled and blind to their mother's happiness that they're often thoroughly unpleasant.

A sometimes cloying mix of screwball comedy and drama.

Less side-splitting than a sad reminder of the past.

Offers some pleasures along the way, including an engaging performance by Leonor Watling.

Top Critic

Despite the promise of its title, this is a movie that skirts the issues of gay relationships at every turn.

Top Critic

My Mother Likes Women wants keenly to be hip and modern, but really it's just an old-fashioned drawing-room comedy.

Audience Reviews for My Mother Likes Women (A mi madre le gustan las mujeres)

I'm surprised that this didn't receive more appreciation from the users. Here we have an elderly mom who has fallen in love with a woman rather than another man...and boy do her daughters react. I thought it was fascinating to see the diverse reactions and the actors clearly having fun exploring their characters.

Super Reviewer

Fun and original tale about about an older woman with three grown daughters, and the young woman she falls in love with. The sisters, put off by this new development, hatch a plan to separate them, and the hilarity ensues. Plot centers on Elvira, the super-neurotic daughter, who ultimately resolves the conflicts. Very funny and engaging, with a happy-go-lucky spirit that is infectious. A gem.

Decent, but kinda wrong, I mean the cast is great, mainly Leonor Watling, but the plot is confusing and a little boring.
