We all have problems. We’ve all had piles of money and a mansion the size of the White House, and we’ve all seen it all just evaporate with the snap of our fingers. Oh, no? That’s never happened to you. Well, that’s basically what happens in this upcoming comedy starring Eugenio Derbez and Salma Hayek.

Downgrading from billions of dollars of money isn’t easy, and in this story, we see Latin love Maximo try to sleep his way to riches once again.

Check out the trailer down below:

The official synopsis for How to Be a Latin Lover is Below:

“Eugenio Derbez is the star of what could be his funniest movie yet! In this laugh out loud comedy, OR In this riches to rags story, Eugenio plays a very handsome and very young Maximo who has a dream to be rich without ever having to work a day in his life. Having made a career of seducing rich older women, he marries a wealthy woman more than twice his age. 25 years later, spoiled and bored from waking up next to his now 80-year-old wife-he gets the surprise of his life when she ends up dumping him for a younger car salesman. Forced out of his mansion and desperate for a place to stay, he must move in with his estranged sister, Sara, (Salma Hayek) and her nerdy but adorable son, Hugo in their small apartment. Anxious to return to the lap of luxury, Maximo uses his nephew’s crush on a classmate to get to his new target-her grandmother, Celeste, a widowed billionaire. As Maximo tries to rekindle his powers as a Latin lover, he finds himself bonding with his nephew Hugo, and he begins to learn that being a Latin lover means that loving money isn’t as important as the love of your family.”

Admittedly, this type of movie isn’t really my cup of tea. It could we worth a few laughs, and it seems like harmless fun, but if this trailer is any indication, it feels like they may be trying a bit too hard with some of the jokes. The Latin lover stereotype seems like something that would come out of the ‘90s, and when all said and done, it almost feels like an SNL skit that’s been stretched too thin. That being said, comedy is a hard thing to capture in a trailer, and for all we know, there could be some solid legs holding this thing up. If nothing else, the cast is pretty solid. Let’s just hope they’re able to help the film succeed where it counts.
