Who is the #1 most influential Hispanic male in the world? According to Variety in 2014 it is Eugenio Derbez. Thousands showed up to see him put his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Now, if you’re a clueless American like me, you probably said, “Who”? Well, Eugenio managed to leverage a surprise hit in American theaters with the Spanish-language film Instructions Not Included in 2013. Now he is back, headlining a (primarily) English comedy, where he plays a washed up gray cougar hunter who is forced out on the street when his elderly catch forces him out after 25 years. Forced to move in with his sister (Salma Hayek) he begins to befriend and teach her ten-year-old son in the ways of being a casanova…but, of course, to try and get something HE wants as well. So how does Derbez’s latest work with English-speaking audiences? Is it as funny as his resume would suggest? Chris, Frank, and George (our new critic of the week!) give you the low-down.

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
