Down Mexico way

2008-10-03 00:00

THREE films open locally today — Saas Bahu Aur Sensex at Nu Metro and My Best Friend’s Girl and Beverly Hills Chihuahua at CineCentre. Swing Vote also joins the Nu Metro lineup.

Saas Bahu Aur Sensex is written and directed by Shona Urvashi and stars Masumi Makhija, Mukta Barve and Anoushka Anand in a comedy about a widow and her daughter who come to Mumbai to make a new life after a divorce. Mother gets in with a group in her building who watch television and play the stockmarket through a broker, while daughter makes friends with a guy who works in a call centre.

Beverly Hills Chihuahua is directed by Raja Gosnell and is about a smart, snooty chihuahua from Beverly Hills who gets lost when her owner’s niece, supposed to be dog-sitting, takes her on holiday to Mexico. It takes a group of serious dogs to get her back. Drew Barrymore voices the heroine, with other dogs being Andy Garcia, George Lopez and — surprisingly — Placido Domingo. Aimed at the doggie crowd.

Howard Deutch directs the romantic comedy My Best Friend’s Girl, which stars Kate Hudson, Dane Cook, Alec Baldwin and Jason Biggs. Tank (Dane Cook) gets hired by guys who get dumped to take their ex-girlfriends out on the worst date of their lives. That is supposed to send them back to their ex-boyfriends. He does it for his best friend — and guess what happens? He falls for her.
