Beatriz (Salma Hayek), an immigrant from a poor town in Mexico, has drawn on her innate kindness to build a career as a spiritual health practitioner in Los Angeles.

When these two opposites meet at a dinner party, their worlds collide and neither will ever be the same.




  • What was that?

    By bethanne1966
    The ending did not make any sense. This movie had promise. Great actors. Interesting plot. But none of it came together and I was left scratching head.
  • Terrible. A waste of time.

    This movie is one cliche after another. Extreme examples of bougie newport beach snops and ethereal, mystic and overlooked minorities. Not a believable character in the bunch.The kind of crap that makes me hate hollywood. One more reason to not watch movies.
  • Unbelievably depressing

    By Sys60
    I don't care if the critics say that the performance of John Lithgow and Salma Hayek were "brilliant", the entire premise was malevolent and unpleasant. I went to bed depressed after watching it. In my opinion the character of Salma Hayek was very "unconvincing and weird" she was not at all thankful for the hospitality shown to her by her hosts. I know the writers are trying to show the "white privelege thing" and how rich white people abuse minorities but I found Hayek totally unconvincing as a "deprived and wronged Mexican" woman. I just wanted to throw her out of the house which they finally did......This is probably the worst movie I have seen in years. Do not waste your time or money. The whole thing is contrived Hollywood crap.

    This trailer is a giant misconception. I really wish I would’ve read the reviews prior to watching this movie. Selma Hayek does do a pretty interesting job of portraying this obviously morally torn character however: this is not a witty comedy about a dinner party. It’s more a portrayal of a 14-year-old’s mind when tasked with the idea of showcasing something “deep” for his eighth grade English essay. Do not watch this film.
  • Not a comedy!

    what a horrible movie about a woman who thought she could heal everyone - but herself! waste of time!
  • Best movie I've seen this year

    By alternafan
    Wow, does this film ever nail the zeitgeist. Only some of you will get it. You know who you are. Watch it, tell others. An amazing achievement, can't wait to watch it again.
  • Save your time and money, trailer is misleading too!

    By foubourg
    This movie is misleading. The trailer leads you to think it may be a comedy, but it's not. The story line is awful. The ending even worse. The best scenes of the movie are viewable in the trailer. The rest is unnecessary and badly scripted drama. Save your money, better yet your time. If the intent was to make a statement, better do a documentary.
  • not quite as advertised.

    By BerwickReview
    There is little to prepare one for the "surprise" ending and if I had read the other reviews correctly (it is hard to write a review without spoiling the unexpected turn of events), then I would have known what they meant by, starts out as comedy and ends as tragedy. Honestly, to see how Hayek ends up dominating the film in one-dimensional character, with a weird ending, deserves 2.5 starts. Not a very serious film. And the ending isn't explained. Don't bother.
  • If only zero stars were an option...

    By 02bike
    This is my first review but this movie is so bad, I had to save others the pain. I love Selma Hayek and John Lithgow, I have a background in therapy and healing, and it was listed under comedy, what could go wrong?? This is a very awkward movie that watches like a college improv class casting around for purpose; it is predictable and despite some ok, but strained performances from the stars, extremely boring. A waste of time and money
