How The Gringo Stole Christmas is a holiday classic with a latin twist. 


The film, which is available to rent or own on VOD now, stars George Lopez, Jack Kilmer, Mariana Treviño, Emily Tosta, and Romy Peniche


The film follows a young white man named Leif (Kilmer) who surprises his Mexican-American girlfriend named Claudia (Tosta) with a trip to her hometown for the holidays. Little does he know that he’s the real surprise. Shortly after arriving, it becomes apparent that his girlfriend hasn’t told her parents about him at all. While he tries his best to blend in, the family’s patriarch (Lopez) goes out of his way to make him feel unwanted.


In addition to reviewing the film for Cinefied (, our very own Dempsey Pillot also got the chance to speak with actor/producer Romy Peniche about the film.

THE PREMISE: "Bennie's daughter is on her way home for the holidays. However she surprises him by arriving with her brand new boyfriend - an uninvited GRINGO."
