'How to Be a Latin Lover' Review

How to Be a Latin Lover is the feature directorial debut of Ken Marino, who (as someone will no doubt tell you) was really funny on Party Down. Latin Lover is not very funny: It stars Eugenio Derbez as an aging lothario who gets dumped by his rich wife and must learn to fend for himself. (Salma Hayek plays his down-to-earth sister who reluctantly lets him crash at her place.) Neither a raucous comedy nor a satisfyingly sappy family film, Latin Lover didn't do much for me at all. My review is up at Screen International.
