Valentin is Acapulco’s resident playboy — until a former fling leaves a baby on his doorstep and takes off without a trace. Valentin leaves Mexico for Los Angeles to find the baby’s mother, but only ends up finding a new home for himself and his newfound daughter, Maggie (Loreto Peralta). An unlikely father figure, Valentin raises Maggie for six years, while also establishing himself as one of Hollywood’s top stuntmen to pay the bills, with Maggie acting as his on-set coach. As Valentin raises Maggie, she forces him to grow up too. But their unique and offbeat family is threatened when Maggie’s birth mom shows up out of the blue, and Valentin realizes he’s in danger of losing his daughter- and his best friend.
Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes
This sporadically amusing but unduly protracted dramedy devolves into a shameless tearjerker in its third act.Joe Leydon, Variety, 09.03.2013
There's a lot of movie here with unexpected developments, held together by the irresistible chemistry between Derbez and his adorable pint-sized co-star.Annlee Ellingson, Los Angeles Times, 08.30.2013
The film's counterintuitive success is largely due to Derbez, who demonstrates why he is beloved, both south and north of the border.Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post, 09.05.2013
