Okay, let's get it out of the way, this film is eye candy with a latino bent to it. The film moves fast through its paperthin plot, and the girls move even faster.

Basically, it's one guy who tries to have relationships with 3 women in 3 different regions of the US (New York, Chicago, and Miami). But of course all 3 women find out about the other 2 and that's when the film take off on its zany plot, which probably wanted to feature bits from "Weekend at Bernies" as the guy (Papi) practically overdoses on tranquilizers to calm his nerves.

Roselyn Sanchez reminds me in looks and voice of a latina Sandra Bulloch, and she can do the slapstick comedy bits quite well. Sofia Vergara is channelling Charo, and doesn't apologize for her bombshell proportions, but doesn't disappoint in terms of entertainment value added to the film. Jaci Velasquez plays the 3rd wheel, but does an adequate job. Freddy Rodriguez (Frederico on Six Feet Under) is sort of funny in his small role.

The best thing I can say about this film is that it seldom drags, and just has a good time with its story which has the 3 women coming together to solve their problems. I'd recommend it as a matinee at best.

I give it 2 stars, or a grade of C.
