FIRST LOOK: My Boyfriend’s Meds (Las Pildoras de mi Novio)

Gotta love the kitty on the poster art alert!

Happy Valentine’s Day 2020 all romantic types everywhere!

On FIRST LOOK Friday let’s give some love to an odd, interesting foreign film — and romantic comedy — which opens next weekend showing what happens when a man goes without his meds.

The film follows Jess (Sandra Echeverria), a talented, high-powered marketing executive at an upscale tequila company who falls for Hank (Jaime Camil), a charismatic mattress store owner. However, Hank hasn’t been completely open with Jess – Hank suffers from a variety of issues for which he takes an endless assortment of medications. What is supposed to be a tropical “business and pleasure” trip begins to spiral out of control when Hank discovers that he left his meds behind and is no longer able hide his various symptoms, going from handsome charmer to an erratic loudmouth

Trailer thoughts:

  • Does Hank seem just a little bit creepy in the mattress store?
  • Is that Seinfeld’s Jason Alexander? (Yes!)
  • Kitty, kitty! Nice close-up on the pill bottle rolling under the bed … uh oh.
  • LOL on the hotel with “Shhh!” in the name

This movie looks funny. No idea when or even if we’ll get to see it in the theater. I checked local theaters for coming soon movies and it’s nowhere to be found. This close to the release date suggests a possibility of moving the date, but I can’t find anything that says the date is being moved. Even the independent theaters are coming up blank in the search.

There are very few foreign films that I look forward to seeing, but this is definitely one of them. It looks wild and wacky and the kind of rom-com that is perfect for the red heart month.
