This is a raunchy Spanish sex comedy with some messages on finding freedom and happiness through honest sexual fulfillment of one's fantasies. It almost seems inevitable that a movie like More the Merrier would emerge in the aftermath (or near aftermath) of Covid social distancing, isolation, and lockdowns. There are five intersecting stories with all the depth of softcore porn, with diverse characters (in terms of age and sexual orientation, anyway) looking for ways to spice up their stale love lives. And if you're not sure what the point of this movie is while watching it, don't worry, because the movie poster promises a "happy ending" for everyone, and if you're still not sure, each character is shown attaining orgasm in the movie's final montage.

Also at the end, the movie tries to tie in these five stories of wonton sexcapades with a voiceover editorial that champions consenting adults defining happiness and sexual gratification on their own terms rather than the restrictive dictates of society. As this is essentially a romcom for the polyamorous, it's a bit absurd to include such rhetoric. Regardless, this is obviously not a movie for the kids in the family.
