A middle-aged man named Maximo who finds himself down and out, with no direction in his life after being dumped by a rich 80-year-old wife.

However, now that he is older and suddenly back on his own, he must figure out how to make ends meet. Upon moving in with his estranged sister Sara and her son Hugo, Maximo must learn a valuable lesson about the realities of the world, rediscovering the meaning of a real family, while struggling with his continued urges to do what he's always done: seduce others for an easy life. The movie is a mix of comedic satire and down to earth family values for the dastardly yet lovable failure Maximo.

movie facts

Drawing more than a few parallels with the Rob Schneider Deuce Bigalow films, How to Be a Latin Lover is a movie largely centered on sexual comedy and a satirical take on the life of a man who knows nothing but how to use his body and sex to get his way in life. Also like the Deuce Bigalow films, How to Be a Latin Lover was not particularly well received by critics upon release. However, the film does manage to be a slightly more nuanced story with a stronger commitment to the themes of family life and caring for others, amidst its otherwise raunchy and sexually driven humor and antics.
