  • A slight but sweet effort that serves as an excellent showcase for its Mexican star, Jaime Camil. The effortlessly charismatic performer delivers a winning performance in this romantic comedy that somehow manages to work despite its endless contrivances. show more

  • Appealing performances and a not always predictable storyline help elevate Pulling Strings above the run-of-the-mill rom-com. show more

  • Though it is funnier and out-charms “Tio Papi,” it lacks the whimsy, magical realism and kid-friendly sentiment of the sleeper hit, “Instructions Not Included.” show more

    Like a shot of tequila from south of the border, this is a refreshing refrain from run of the mill comedies heaped upon us today. Good story, photography, cast and direction. Too bad it wasn\'t all in English...nice anyway.
