Is It Any Good?

Kids say: Not yet rated

Once you set aside the iffy premise and cliches, this romantic comedy in Spanish with English subtitles has some genuine, if small, laughs and a refreshing ending. But you have to wait a long time before it's clear that the ultimate message of Ready to Mingle avoids the typical happily-ever-after. Thanks to a strong cast led by Cassandra Ciangherotti's enjoyable performance as the lovable train wreck, there's some enjoyment to be had along the way.

Even though the overall tone is warm and engaging, most of the humor comes from ideas about what women want and how men are in relationships that are pretty worn out. The characters are all in their 30s, but there's some teen appeal in comparing their own hopes and expectations in life to Ana's, so it's a good chance to talk about what they want from life and what makes or doesn't make a solid foundation for happiness. Areas of concern include frequent and excessive alcohol use and adult, non-graphic sexual situations.
