Movie Info

Rachel is an intelligent modern day woman constantly on the move. Primarily focused on her career as a diplomatic consul for the U.S. embassy, she's literally lived her life on the move, globetrotting from city to city. Currently working in Mexico City and set to leave for London, Rachel's world turns upside down on the eve of her own goodbye party when she gets drunk and passes out on the street. Saved by Alejandro, a handsome Mariachi singer and single father, Rachel wakes up in his apartment with no recollection of how she got there. Nor does she remember that she rejected his visa the day before, which he desperately needs for his daughter. Romance unexpectedly blossoms between the two, but either sparks or fists will fly after she finds out his secret.

Critic Reviews for Pulling Strings

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (4)

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.
