      Nicholas Bell IONCINEMA.com Only worthwhile for completists of LeRoy or one of the several notable names in the cast, Latin Lovers is bleached out storytelling. Rated: 2/5 Oct 20, 2020 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews Sterile and packs no punch. Rated: C Aug 18, 2020 Full Review Read all reviews

      Russ G Only reason to watch this is Miss Turner in her glamorous coiffure, gowns, and smart suits. Senor Montalban is the tall, dark and handsome Latin Lover, but Boomer audiences can't watch this without thinking of "De Plane!" and "fine Corinthian leather!" It's half musical, half romcom and it couldn't come out of the Fifties without racial stereotypes. Going by the formula I had expected it to end with Nora returning to her former beau but it didn't turn out that way. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Glossy MGM Lana Turner vehicle directed by Mervyn Leroy; Ricardo Montalban gets to sing a couple of songs and Rita Moreno has a bit part as a jealous lover. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Well mounted Lana Turner vehicle that takes her south of the border for romance in South America. The only reason I watched this film is because I'm a huge Ricardo Montalban and not at all in an ironic way. If you watch Montalban's early Hollywood films, he has an amazing screen presence, especially in his few leading roles where he wasn't playing stereotypical ethnic parts like he does here, he really did deserve to have been a major star. This film is absolute fluff, but it's well made fluff from director Mervyn LeRoy that features a handsome cast, that includes beside Turner and Montalban, John Lund, Louis Calhern, Jean Hagen, and Rita Moreno. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review ashley h Latin Lovers is a cute film. It is about Nora Taylor who has $37,000,00 but thinks every man she meets prefers her bankbook figure to her own. Lana Turner and Ricardo Montalban give incredible performances. The script is well written. Mervyn LeRoy did a great job directing this movie. I enjoyed watching this motion picture because of the humor and romance. Latin Lovers is a must see. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member There's a reason this is one of Miss Turner's more obscure titles. Lesser Lana with plush trappings but a silly story line with horribly dated gender attitudes. Lana's clothes are beautiful but her hair is shellacked into place throughout, its not unattractive but is strangely immobile. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Lana is beautiful and her costumes wee so gorgeous in this movie! I really miss how women used to dress in the 50s. . . classy and demure. I loved the Samba scene! Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/24/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
