A true comedy, this movie is one of the funniest films you will ever see! It was a very enjoyable movie from the very beginning to the very end. It is an excellent screenplay, the casting is also outstanding, and the direction, editing, and soundtrack of the film are all excellent as well. There are very few times when people can enjoy watching a true comedy as much as they can, because, most of the time, those so-called comedies turn out to be nothing but pure junk and outright frauds. The performance of all the main characters is excellent, and the performances of all the supporting characters are also outstanding as well. In my opinion, this is a perfect comedy, and I really enjoy it!

Story Line of Valet

Antonio, a divorced father, lives with his mother, Cecilia, as a valet parking guy. Antonio shares custody of his teenage son with Isabel, his ex-wife, and the two share the same household. It is also important to note that there is another story developing parallel to this one. Olivia Allan is a famous actress who has a very interesting story to tell. Olivia is the wife of a billionaire who has a relationship with a married man named Vincent Royce. Olivia was with Vincent one night when Antonio had an accident nearby, and the three of them were pictured together as a result of the accident. Olivia and Vincent’s affair are rumored to have started as a result of this incident. His company’s future is at risk if he divorces Kathryn, as he speculates he may lose it all in the event of a divorce. Vincent decides to come up with a scheme in order to have Olivia (the actress) pretend to be a couple while Antonio (the valet) pretends to be a man. There is no doubt in Vincent’s mind that this will get him out of this predicament and he looks forward to it
