LIVING IT UP
Sexy Lola (Hayek) is a waitress down on her luck until she meets handsome, charming Martin (Gomez), who happens to be a big-spending millionaire... or is he? While the two indulge in a storybook romance complete with extravagant dinners, hundreds of roses and a champagne-filled swimming pool, the clock is ticking on Martin's million-dollar debt to the mob. And just as Martin realizes his deep love for Lola, she reveals a dark secret of her own. The final question is will this spicy fairy tale have a happy ending?
I LIKE IT LIKE THAT
When her well-meaning husband is arrested, a young mother, Lisette, finds herself unprepared to support the family. Fast-talking her way into a job with a record producer (Griffin Dunne), Lisette quickly discovers her own hidden talents. But the boys in the neighborhood report back to Chino that she is "dating" her bigwig boss, leading to a major confrontation that changes their life together. For Lisette, every day has become Independence Day.
Sometimes you have to lose everything before you find yourself. Roselyn Sanchez (Rush Hour 2, TV's Devious Maids) plays a young, classically trained Latina ballerina, who dreams of leaving her impoverished home in Puerto Rico to pursue fame and fortune as a dancer in New York. Trying to make ends meet, she works at a seedy club and quickly sets audiences afire with her erotic moves. When she falls in love with a regular customer (D.B. Sweeney), she must decide between an audition for a Broadway production and true love.
Sometimes passion needs a little persuasion. Sofia Milos (TV's CSI: Miami) stars as a widowed mother who refuses to date even years after her husband's death. Daughter Vicky (Emmy Rossum, A Phantom of the Opera, TV's Shameless) is set out on a quest to find romance for her mom - even if it means striking a deal with a handsome gambler (Jason Isaacs, The Patriot, Black Hawk Down) whom no mother would ever approve!
