Having made a career of seducing rich older women, Maximo (Eugenio Derbez) marries a wealthy woman (Renée Taylor) more than twice his age. 25 years later, spoiled, out of shape and bored from waking up next to his now 80-year-old wife, he gets the surprise of his life when she ends up dumping him for a younger car salesman.

Forced out of his mansion and desperate for a place to stay, he shacks up with another gigolo Rick’s (Rob Lowe) older girlfriend’s granddaughter’s upscale playhouse, and eventually moves in with his estranged sister, Sara (Salma Hayek) and her nerdy but adorable son, Hugo (Raphael Alejandro) in their small apartment. Anxious to return to the lap of luxury, Maximo uses his nephew’s crush on classmate Arden (Mckenna Grace), to get to his new target—her grandmother, Celeste (Raquel Welch), a widowed billionaire.

Maximo teaches his nephew some tricks he thinks that works during which he finds himself bonding with his nephew Hugo. Maximo tries to reignite his charm as a Latin lover, and fails at it miserably. Sara comes to know of Maximo tack and kicks him out. Finally at the end of the tricks he moves in with Rick’s older girlfriend who had a crush on him and patches up the relation with his sister and nephew.
