The film follows a man who has spent his whole life married to a rich old woman, and must learn to make it on his own when she kicks him out. Having made a career of seducing rich older women, Maximo marries a wealthy woman more than twice his age. Forced out of his mansion and desperate for a place to stay, he contacts Rick, another pampered gigolo. He crashes in the upscale playhouse of the woman's granddaughter, which does not go over very well.

See the gallery. Title: How to Be a Latin Lover Dumped by his extremely rich eighty-year-old wife for a younger boy-toy after twenty-five years of prosperous marriage, pampered, yet penniless gold-digger Maximo Eugenio Derbez is forced to take matters into his own hands, perhaps for the first time in his once luxurious life. As a result, the aging gigolo will have no other choice but to seek shelter with his estranged widowed sister Sara Salma Hayek and his ten-year-old nephew Hugo Raphael Alejandro , completely unprepared though for a rude awakening coupled with a big slice of real-life on the side. But once a seducer, always a seducer, and as spoiled Maximo struggles to squeeze out one decent idea that would throw him back into the arms of yet another fabulously wealthy widow, a new opportunity will appear; one that includes a profitable first-rate tutorship in how to be the perfect Casanova.
I vote no, even if the actor now and then flashes a bit of clownish panache as middle-aged gold-digger Maximo, who gets dumped by his abundantly wealthy year-old wife Renee Taylor in a Renee Taylor-made role for a younger model in the guise of dweeby Michael Cera in a glorified cameo. Nor do we require a farce that might have been more appropriate as an outright R-rated romp but instead awkwardly chooses to be a PG bring-the-kids outing. Now-penniless, the mooch moves in with estranged sister Sara Salma Hayek and decides to tutor his shy and fatherless year-old nephew, Hugo Raphael Alejandro , in the art of being a junior Casanova. That means we are subjected to questionable cross-generational humor of varying degrees of silliness and stupidity. Not because there are already three other Robs in the cast, but because the onetime Brat Pack member clearly has perfected the knack of not taking himself too seriously. As for Hayek, she is always a welcome sight, even when wasted as a straight woman. Who knows? Attendees just might have cause for a class-action suit. Now unchained from the grind of daily journalism, she is ready to view the world of movies with fresh eyes.
