Comedies are difficult to pull off but this one, despite some cheesy moments, adequate acting, Hollywoody-style of storyline and a little twist of the original script managed to pull it off nicely. It was a fun movie to watch as the movie was well put together.

Filming was mainly in Richmond, BC including parts of our White Rock so it was interesting to spot some local scenes.

I'm not totally convinced about the chemistry between the two adult leads, but it was passable. The children were superb actors and I think they'd go far in the performance business.

The twist in plot to the original storyline was very well done. Overall, this is a comedy and it was fun to watch. It was funny enough that we laughed and smiled throughout the whole movie. Good family and date movie; mixed company type of movie, maybe not so much a guy's movie...but I guess it depends on what kind of 'guy' you are.

Remake of the 1987 film with the same name and starring Eugenio Derbez, Anna Faris and Eva Longoria. A well scripted and acted bicultural comedy that is a much better film than the 2017 "How to Be a Latin Lover" that also starred Derbez. Enjoyed it so much that my smiling/laughing muscles were over exercised as the credits roll. Who said having money is more important in life than having love, or is it the other way around. LOL.

This remake of the same 80’s movie was fairly disappointing since the characters didn’t have the same chemistry as they did in the original. Kate is a single mother working for a very wealthy Mexican man, until she is suddenly fired. After the man suffers from an injury that leaves him without his memory, Kate decides to pretend to be his wife for as long as possible. Some moments in the movie were definitely comedic as Anna Faris (Kate) did her best to convince her former boss that they were married. However, the movie did a poor job at naturally tying over the Mexican culture of the boss, Leonardo, and making the movie something believable. I would rate this film 3/5 stars. @The_Reviewer of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

Good enough for an evening of mindless entertainment.

I think Anna Farris is a good comedy actress. I liked this movie, which is better than the average rom-com.

This reboot is very well done. I regret not seeing it in the movie theatres. The twist is refreshing. A reference/homage to the previous one is mentioned via the hospital. Eugenio Debrez has crossed over fairly recently from Latin America. He is a very well know and respected comedian in latinx culture. He is best known for his slapstick comedy and also family sitcoms in Telemundo. Anna Ferris is fantastic. I really enjoyed the insight in latinx culture and the merging of both cultures, American and latino.

Sorry, but this a rather stale reboot of the original.

This has to be one of the best family pictures ever made. It's no Gone With The Wind but it's funny from start to finish.

Only these two quotes in IMDb:

Molly: What's a pervert ?
Kate: Nothing.
Molly: Can I have one ?
Leonardo: [to his doctor] Can you get me a prettier nurse ?
Here are more:

I'm a grown man with a tattoo on his butt.
-Is that Speedy Gonzales?
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.

You're not the only one with a dead husband.
-Dad's not dead, you're divorced!
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.
--- Leo, you're giving up a lot, dude. No one would begrudge you if you wanted to take a few minutes.
-Bobby, would you stay out of this?
---What? I'm just saying! Love fades, okay? I mean, it's wonderful. But some of the excitement goes away. Now, money...
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.
