Not since The Devil Wears Prada has there been a romantic-comedy that captures the FUN of the fashion industry. Macho is a Mexican film concerning about a closeted heterosexual designer who uses his flamboyant ways to peddle his craft, until he has to get a boyfriend to prove just how gay he is.
The script plays with homophobia in a light hearted way that's only occasionally a little hard to handle. It's surprisingly sweet. Miguel Rodarte plays lead the philandering man whore, Cecilia Suarez is his beautiful competent partner who picks his fake boyfriend from the homosexuals in the office. Renato Lopez is young enough to still have his dimples and a machine gun from his late husband.
