QUICK TAKE:
Dramedy: Two half-brothers, who couldn't be more different and have never met before, end up on a road trip to solve a mystery left by their late father.
PLOT:

Decades ago, young Renato Murguía (IAN INIGO) was quite close with his father, Flavio (JUAN PABLO ESPINOSA), including sharing their love of all things airplane related. But after the Mexican economy faltered, Flavio ended up having to leave Renato and his mom, Tere (BIANCA MARROQUIN), to look for employment in America with the promise that he'd return.

But he didn't, and all of these years later, Renato (LUIS GERARDO MÉNDEZ) -- who runs an aviation company -- has acted like he doesn't have a father. All of which means he's not exactly primed to be the best stepdad to Emilio (MIKEY SALAZAR), the 10-year-old son of Renato's fiancée, Pamela (PIA WATSON).

His past, however, comes roaring back when he receives a phone call from Flavio's current wife that Flavio is on his deathbed and would like to see his son one more time. Renato is reluctant and only goes at Pamela's insistence. Arriving in the States, his dim view of American's is reinforced by interactions with the locals, including a goofy guy, Asher (CONNOR DEL RIO), who'd like the impatient Renato to buy his coffee.

Renato refuses and heads to the hospital where he not only sees his father, but also that man's grown son -- who just so happens to be Asher. Renato wants no part of either of them and leaves, only to learn that his father left him and Asher a riddle to solve.

Renato is again reluctant and wants to return to Mexico as he and Pamela are getting married in a few days, but ends up roped into a road trip with his half-brother who annoys him to no end. As their journey continues and Renato would like to solve the riddle as soon as possible, he eventually begins to have a different outlook on Asher.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
They might if they're into road-trip type comedies or dramedies.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
For some violence and strong 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!!!
