An aging Latin lover gets dumped by his sugar mama and must fend for himself in a harsh world.



Arizona Republic - Randy Cordova
There are quite a few genuine laughs along the way. Director Ken Marino has a firm hand with big, silly slapstick, but he also knows how to make the most of dialogue.
The Hollywood Reporter - Michael Rechtshaffen equally at home directing the broader physical comedy and sweeter bonding sequences between Maximo and Hugo, even as the overlong film's two distinct personalities never manage to coalesce into a self-contained whole.
Variety - Joe Leydon
There are some very funny bits and pieces scattered amid the proceedings, along with a few darkly comical gags that appear to belong in a different movie, but are more than welcome here.
TheWrap - Claudia Puig
Derbez brings warmth and intermittent goofy humor to this too-broad and uneven comedy.
Los Angeles Times - Kimber Myers
Its humor is broad, but most of the jokes work for the intended audience — with a few even breaking through to more resistant viewers.
