Plot Summary: The successful and handsome wolf executive of the cosmetic industry Thomas Fuentes has three sexy Latin girlfriends: in Miami, the waitress Cici; in Chicago, the intellectual lawyer Lorena; and in New York, the “daddy’s girl” Patricia. When the three women decide to visit him in Los Angeles, Thomas is in a big trouble. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Director: Linda Mendoza

Writers: Laura Angelica Simon (story & screenplay), Steve Antin (story & screenplay), Alison Balian (screenplay), Elizabeth Sarnoff (screenplay)

Stars: Eduardo VerásteguiRoselyn Sanchez and Sofía Vergara

Serious Jest:  (Don’t Bother)  As a Latino, I’ve gotta say that you will probably not enjoy this movie unless you’re a Latina (and even then it’s 50/50).  In essence, this is a lighthearted, often-silly, and sometimes-corny film about self-empowerment for women who have been cheated on.  Sanchez and Vergara are extremely hot, though.
