I like the remake. I wasn't expecting much, but I really like how they changed up the story. Its not just a copycat movie. Well done.
There were big shoes to fill, considering the leads in the original movie.

don't waste your time.

OK Watched the original over 5 times Barely made it through this one once. The funny parts were spoiled by having to read the subtitles

This movie did not reach the hype of the original. One to stay clear of.......

This movie had to be very careful remaking one of Goldie Hawn's better comedies. In the end the remake didn't even come close. As a stand alone film had some funny moments with an improbable end.

Not as good as the original movie made in 1987 with Kurt Russel and Goldi Hawn. It was ok and I believe if I had not seen the original then I probably would have enjoyed it better. However, I just did not find the reversal of the sexes to work as well. I believe Kurt Russel did a better job of being a low incompetent father who worked as a carpenter and Goldie Hawn's role as the stuck up wealthy women who went overboard to be a better combination. Not a bad movie but just did not measure up with the original.

No chemistry between the main characters, too long (almost 2 hours), having to read the subtitles so often and for so long disrupted the flow of the action (instead of seeing the actors acting, I was busy reading). Not a good remake.

Felt like a made for TV movie. No chemistry between the two leads, hated having to read the closed caption when they spoke Spanish so often, too long and predictable.

Totally enjoyed this romp. It ain't Shakespeare, but it's not intended to be. I was surprised at how good it was. Combining the Hispanic and American, wealthy and poor cultures was terrific, it sends a great message.

And even though we have the expected ending - getting there was full of surprises and lots of fun. Happy I didn't pay attention to the stars rating!

Do you know another cartoon mouse with a sombrero? I hate the pussycat.
-Let me guess, you were, uh, a little tipsy when you got that?
Not at all. I love Speedy. He's fast, he's charming. He's Mexican. He outsmarts the pussycat and brings delicious cheese to his people. And he's just fun to look at.

Just because those girls were not conceived with my seed, doesn't make me any less their father or a man.
-Of course not. I just...
I'm not done. All I do is work and work and slave for this family. I may not have put us in the lap of luxury, but I'm a provider.

It's just that most people don't actually have to choose between love and money.
-It's not easy.
It's easy. I choose you.

No. Fair is fair. He has paid his debt. I have tortured him long enough.
-Okay. You're really gonna hate doing your own laundry again.
