Key Marketing Points

  • Classic opposites attract romantic comedy film along with the blending of different cultures (e.g. My Big Fat Greek Wedding)
  • Most of the actors are well-known from popular television shows: Once Upon a Time, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Days of Our Lives, etc. so they have niche fan bases on social media.
  • Will appeal to Hispanic and Italian audiences because of main characters' heritage and focus on Mexican cuisine.
