Maximo is a penniless gold-digger and he has lived as a boy-toy in a marriage with Peggy 25 years. They go to purchase a new Lamborgini for Peggy’s birthday but it’s really for Maximo. Unfortunately for Maximo, the young car salesman becomes Peggy’s new boy toy. Maximo is tossed out on the street, there was a prenuptial agreement and Maximo gets nothing. He goes to stay with his younger sister and her son but this is not a happy arrangement. All Maximo can think about is connecting with another wealthy woman.
Maximo is very shallow and he is very self-centered. He even claims that he is younger than his sister but he is the older brother? He needs to get a real job and turn his life around instead of being a sponge!! There is a lot of humor in this film. 3* (This movie is OK)

Note: Imdb 5.9 out of 10, 38% critic 62% audience on Rotten Tomatoes, Roger Ebert 1 1/2*, Metacritic 54 out of 100 with 11 critics 5.4 out of 10 with 35 reviews.
Special Note: Filmed in Santa Clarita and Pasadena, California. Eugenio Derbez’s son in real life plays Maximo at 22 years old in the beginning of the film. There is a mistake with the truck in the opening scene. The truck is supposed to be driving down a road. The instruments show no amps drawn from the battery and the coolant temperature is below the lowest end of the cold range?
