If you have a chance to see this movie please do. It is at it''s core, a heartwarming father daughter story, with themes of love & rising to the occasion when the shit hits the fan.

I was privileged to go to a private screening hosted by its director, writer & star Eugenio Derbez last night in Mexico City. If you know of him, he''s really known for comedies & his comedic sensibilities. There is definitely plenty to laugh at in the movie, but at the end you are left with bittersweet tears & a sense that you''ve witnessed what true love is.

FYI, it''s mostly in Spanish with English subtitles.

Ive seen it advertised. It looks very good.

People tell you exactly who they are...why expect them to be what they are not ....will be divorcing the selfish creep.

I read either an interview with Derbez or an article by him, I can't remember which, a handful of years ago. He seemed to have a warm, charming sense of humor. I never have seen his films but I'm thinking I need to. I'll start with the one you recommend then work backward.

We need an SI forum called "The Screening Room" for movie reviews (and trigger warnings).
