5.0 out of 5 stars Very good movie in my opinion! December 4, 2013
By Oslek
I have to say that I have never been a big fan of Eugenio Derbez... Mexican humor is a bit difficult for me to "get" and enjoy. I do think he is a real talent as far as voices are concerned (he has done voice over for many Disney and animated movies) in Spanish and he does a wonderful job.

Having said this, I was so surprised I loved his role in this movie... Nor only his acting but the fact that he produced and co-wrote the story. Wonderful job! It was a very good movie that transitioned between drama and comedy seamlessly.

I personally have 2 kids and am not sure this is a family type movie.

I very much recommend this movie... Good acting and a very nice story.

5.0 out of 5 stars I WILL Own This DVD! December 25, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
"No se Aceptan Devoluciones" (English captions) is rapidly becoming a phenomenon: By its second week, it is currently the tenth highest-grossing foreign film in U.S. history and on track for third place.(NOTE: By December, 2013, this has become the highest-grossing Spanish language film in American history.)

Directed by Mexican superstar Eugenio Derbez, who also co-wrote the screenplay, this hits all its marks: It's heart-warming, funny, and has an adorable little girl as the central issue. This has been a labor of love for Mr. Derbez: It took him twelve long years to raise the money to create this film and distribute it in los Estados Unidos.

Please enjoy:
* Eugenio Derbez ("Under the Same Moon") is a happy playboy in Acapulco when a former fling dumps their baby girl in his lap; he didn't know she was pregnant, nor did he know how to change a diaper. Six years later, after struggling to pay the bills, he has become a top stuntman in Hollywood. You'll smile at their father/ daughter pajamas; in fact you'll think perhaps he is a bit too indulgent.
* Loreto Peralto in her film debut, is the surprise package. She has become her father's on-set coach and taught him how to be a worthwhile adult, even as he has supported and loved her. Listen to her switch between Spanish and English as she negotiates his pay raises.
* Jessica Lindsey ("Now You See Me") resurfaces and jeopardizes the life our hero has built with his wise and much-loved daughter. There are a few surprises with her, too.

Everything in this sweet but salty personal project is painted with broad strokes, there is NO subtlety here. Our hero's fears are represented by wolves, whether it's his fear of commitment or fear of heights, he sees wolves!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Most Powerful Movies I Have Ever Seen January 24, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Well, I rented this movie with the expectation of kicking back and having a few laughs, assuming it was going to be a light, funny comedy. Not even close. It turned out to be one of the most powerful movies I have ever seen in my life, and I have seen thousands of movies in my 60+ years.
The beginning does indeed start out silly. In fact, so silly, that I began to wonder if I would even bother to finish it. So glad I decided to stay with it. A lot of movies start out strong and fizzle along the way. This movie does just the opposite. It starts out weak, and just keeps getting stronger - and stronger - and stronger. And, just when you think you have things figured out, you realize that you don't - not even close.
This is definitely one that I want to watch over and over and over, and lend to all of my family members and friends to watch, so I just placed my order for it on this website a moment ago.

4.0 out of 5 stars Comedy with a big heart February 1, 2014
By JWink
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Instructions not Included tells the story of a man with lives the single man lifestyle whose life is change after his daughter is left on his doorstep. (Keep in mind that this is a Spanish language movie with English subtitles)

I wasn't sure about this movie when I first rented it, mainly because I wasn't sure how well the story and the comedy would translate to me, since I am not fluent in Spanish. I have watched foreign films before in a variety of languages but this is my first attempt at watching a foreign comedy movie. But you know my fears of that were unfounded, there were some funny moment for sure but more than that the movie is more of a heartfelt comedy with a big heart at that. This movie starts a bit slowly and is less of a laugh out loud funny movie and is more of a pull at your heart strings story. This movie has a lot of drama and a surprise ending that will leave you in tears, you wont even have to speak Spanish to get this movie. If you have never tried watching a foreign film, give this one a chance, it has a story that is worth it.

"Instructions Not Included" (2013 release from Mexico; 115 min.; original title "No se Aceptan Devoluciones", which means "Returns Not Accepted") brings the story of Valentin, a single guy living "la vida loca" in Acapulco. In a quick montage, we see him hooking up with a slew of women. Then one day, an ex-girlfriend, an American woman named Julie, shows up at his apartment with a baby. She hands Valentin the baby, asks for $10 to pay the cab, and of course does not come back. Valentin is completely overwhelmed with this baby, and for a while the movie feels like "Two Men and a Baby". But not long thereafter, through a clever montage, we see the little girl (whose name we learn is Maggie) turning into a 6 yr. old. Because Maggie is desparate to see her mom, Valentin and Maggie decide to move to Los Angeles, and after hitchhiking their way from Acapulco to LA, Valentin ends up getting a job as a stunt double in Hollywood. Life is good but then one day, he gets a call out of the blue from Julie, now living in New York and wanting to come see Maggie. To tell you more of this plot-heavy movie would surely ruin your viewing pleasure, you'll just have to see for yourself how it all plays out.

Several comments: first and foremost, this movie is a triumph for Eugenio Derbez, who directs, stars (as Valentin), co-writes and co-produces this delightful movie. Second, the movie swings back-and-forth between comedy and drama without any problem. But the funniest scenes are truly laugh-out-loud funny. The American influences on this movie are very clear (from "Two Men and a Baby" early on to "Kramer vs. Kramer" deep into the movie), yet it is all brought with a refreshing new look and take.

I have the same question! It is confusing that it says English as the language but subtitled in English and Spanish?
