How to be a Latin Lover

"How to be a Latin Lover" certainly features a lot of moments and comments about sex and being a lover, but refreshingly, it also shows the growth of the main character, Maximo (Eugenio Derbez), who begins to finally appreciate his sister, Sara (Salma Hayek) and her son, his nephew, Hugo (Raphael [...]

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

Here Comes the Boom is a little slow in building but quickens the pace by mid-film. The story centers around the idea that we can all do our part to help others succeed in their goals.

The 3D in the movie is one of the best examples I have seen of the technique. Puss in Boot's sword seemed to be pointed right at me on a few [...]

Ask the Dusk – Filtered

July 25, 2006
This film lacks in having enough story to carry it for two hours. Two people coming to America to live "the American dream" yet failing. They fall in love despite their differences. There were many instances where fornication was strongly implied and a man and woman were unmarried and living [...]

After the Sunset

If you have seen "The Thomas Crown Affair" with Pierce Brosnan, then you for all practical purposes have seen this film. Some may feel that Salma Hayek is much more attractive than Rene Russo, but that is a matter of opinion. Max Burdett and Thomas Crown are very similar characters. They are both [...]
