Loco Love

"OK"

Loco Love Review


Comparisons will be drawn to My Big Fat Greek Wedding, but nothing could be further from the truth.

Laura Harring (Mulholland Drive) is about the only thing memorable about this ethnicified update of The Taming of the Shrew, with -- get this -- a poor Mexican lottery winner (dig the mustache) setting up his down-and-out former employer (Roy Werner) into an arranged marriage with his sister (Harring), stuck in Mexico and lacking a green card. Eventually everyone moves into Donald's (Werner) house, but Donald's psychotic ex-wife gets in the way.

To be sure, Loco Love is an extremely stupid movie -- and horribly named, I should add -- but it's also pretty harmless. There's no danger in the message here -- that we can all get along if we try, transcending the reins of class and culture. Harring isn't quite the spicy "Cat" (here she's named Catalina) of the other films that precede her, but she's easy on the eyes and puts the incredibly grating Werner in his place from time to time.

Aka Mi Casa, Su Casa.
