Decent romantic comedy.
I saw this film on DVD, and it was not bad. I've seen Mexican films that are better than this one, but I probably have seen many more that are a lot worse. The plot was fairly solid and the acting was good. The subtitles were bold, clear and accurate. The pace of the film seemed too rushed though. Also the film had no edge, as it seemed almost G rated. The backdrop of the Riviera Maya was great, which also gave a clean look to the film.
The lead character in the film is a tour guide who quits her job after a corporate takeover and starts up her own company. I think more could have been developed off that challenge, as it seemed that she was instantly up and rolling. That's one plot development of several that I thought were rushed.
What I did like was how the film worked the preservation of the ecology of the Riviera Maya in to the film. In that regard the film was different from most romantic comedies. The Spanish was very clear and easy to understand, so I think it would be a decent film to show to college or even high school students.
So overall, I thought "Cambio de Ruta" was an OK light comedy.
