A la Mala was the top-grossing Spanish-language film in 2015 in both the U.S. and Mexico behind only Un Gallo con Muchos Huevos (“Huevos: Little Rooster’s Egg-cellent Adventure”). The edgy romantic comedy about a struggling actress who is paid to seduce women’s boyfriends to test their fidelity stars real-life superstar couple Aislinn Derbez and Mauricio Ochmann, who fell in love while shooting the film.
