Nice Movie
14 July 2014 | by kkish-hyd5See all my reviews

A nice movie to get your time pass with the hot Mexican actress and good story line on which their husbands has been taken away for war and all the wives left in the town. A very well pictured artistically about a small Latin town.

A very good feel to watch this movie.

It is the story adopted from "Tales from the Town of Widows" by -James Cañón

The Plot starts with the narration of a church father of the small town scene in which government authorities capture men from a small town to let them fight in the war. Many of those men try to escape from the officers but still they were caught and only church father is left along with another guy(who is a jerk and henpecked) who been dressed up like a woman with the help of his wife is left in the town and the rest of the other men were taken away. Slowly the absence of men in that little town leads a miserable life to their wives and all the wives discuss to solve the issue by themselves. The Mayor's wife(Eva Longoria) leads the town as a new mayor and others follow their husbands roles in the town like doctor, police, milkman etc.

The only problem is how to reproduce their heirs without their men thinking their men will return from the war or not. In this scenario all the ladies think to have an intercourse with the church father in order to make children. The church father who sleeps with lot of women in the town but unable to produce any children as he later reveals that he is an impotent and he runs away from the town as all the women beats him to go away. A new woman(Kate del Castillo) shows up in the town with little manly looks in her and she will be attracted by the lady mayor. Then the story goes on with lust full nature of these 2 women and a man(Christian Slater) from war arrives the town unintentionally, that man is attracted by all the women in the town but he refuses for their proposition and let the men in the war know that their wives are waiting for their men. Later at the end all men will return from the war to meet their wives.
