QUICK TAKE:
Dramedy: To get even with a spoiled billionaire playboy for the way he treated her, a single mom who's training to be a nurse cons that man into thinking he's her husband and father to her three girls when he falls off his yacht and washes up on the shore suffering from amnesia.
PLOT:
Kate Sullivan (ANNA FARIS) is a single mom to Emily (HANNAH NORDBERG), Olivia (ALYVIA ALYN LIND), and Molly (PAYTON LEPINSKI) who's holding down several jobs while studying to pass her nursing exam. While cleaning part of the yacht owned by playboy Leonardo Montenegro (EUGENIO DERBEZ) -- who's been tapped by his ailing father, Papi (FERNANDO LUJAN), to take over the company business rather than either of his sisters, Magdalena (CECILIA SUAREZ) and Sofia (MARIANA TREVINO) -- Kate has a bad run-in with the billionaire and he ends up pushing her off the yacht and throwing her cleaning gear into the water.

That costs her that job, and with her facing an eviction notice, Kate's friend, Theresa (EVA LONGORIA), concocts a wild scheme when they see on the news that a man washed up on the shore with amnesia. With Kate recognizing him, Theresa proposes that they con Leonardo into believing he's Kate's husband and father to their three kids. With Theresa's construction foreman husband, Bobby (MEL RODRIGUEZ), agreeing to employ him, Kate decides to go through with the ruse, even getting her daughters to play along.

At first, the newly renamed Leo can't believe he's married, has kids, and is poor, but knowing he's suffering from amnesia, he cautiously goes home with them. Wanting her revenge, Kate puts him to work as little more than her domestic slave labor, all so that she has more time to study. But as he gets better and then good at what he does both at home and at work, Kate tries to figure out how to tell him the truth, all while realizing that will break her daughters' hearts as well as her own now that she's started to fall for him.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
If they're fans of anyone in the cast they might show some interest. Otherwise, it doesn't seem too likely.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
For suggestive material, partial nudity and some language.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
