What is the movie “The Valet,” about? Here is “The Valet,” Synopsis/Plot summary:
The movie “Valet,” was about a famous Hollywood actress, Olivia Allan (Acted by Samara Weaving). Olivia was dating a married man, Vincent Royce (Acted by Max Greenfield) who she didn’t know was married when she started dating him. Anytime she tried ending her relationship with Vincent, he always found a way to sweet talk her out of it promising to divorce his billionaire wife, Kathryn Royce (Acted by Betsy Brandt).
One day, Olivia met with Vincent Royce in the hotel they usually hook up and summoned up the courage to end her relationship with him, telling him to only contact her when he has finally divorced his wife, Kathryn Royce. She walked out of the hotel while vincent ran after her pleading for more time.
While trying to get away from Vincent, Olivia bumped into a parking valet, Antonio Flores (Acted by Eugenio Derbez) making it possible for Vincent to catch up with her. Olivia while apologizing to Eugenio was photographed by paparazzi which she was unaware of. In the photograph was also Vincent Royce.
Moments later, the photo went viral, and Betsy got to see the picture. She instantly suspected that her husband, Vincent was having an affair with the famous actress, Olivia, and planned on divorcing Vincent.
Vincent approached Olivia and pleaded with her to pretend to be Antonio’s girlfriend so his wife won’t divorce him based on infidelity which may cause him to lose company ownership. Olivia agreed to play along to avoid any negative vibe before the premiere of her new movie, Earhart, while the parking valet, Antonio was also hired to play along
During their fake relationship, Olivia and Antonio started appearing in public places together even though Antonio’s standard was lower than Olivia’s. Wherever they went, they were always surrounded by paparazzi, which made Antonio famous.
He was so famous that his wife who wanted to divorce him started longing for him.
However, Vincent’s wife, Kathryn, wasn’t convinced enough that there was something between Antonio and Olivia, so, she hired a private investigator to monitor them. But, Betsy was partially convinced that the two were dating after Olivia slept over at Antonio’s house due to her drunken state at the premiere of Earhart.
Antonio lived with his son whom he had with his ex-wife- Isabel (Acted by Marisol Nicholls), and mum, Cecilia, who was dating their landlord, Mr.Kim. Their inlaws do come around as well.
Olivia woke up and found herself in Antonio’s bedroom who explained to her that she was too drunk to reveal to him and his friends her home address. As Antonio and Olivia stepped out of the bedroom, Olivia was properly welcomed by Antonio’s lovely family. They were excited to have a famous person in their house. They served her a meal and also gave her some to take home. Olivia instantly fell in love with Antonio’s family and admired their closeness she did not enjoy such closeness with her family.
Meanwhile, Vincent heard that Olivia slept over at Antonio’s place and was furious. Antonio and Olivia got closer after the night she slept at his house.
The day Olivia attended Isabel and Antonio’s son’s play at school, Isabel was filled with jealousy. Since Antonio was already famous for being around Olivia. Isabel lustfully kissed Antonio, and excitedly, Antonio told her the truth that his relationship with Olivia wasn’t real but a fake one just to save Royce’s marriage. This left Isabel disappointed
That day, Olivia pleaded with Antonio to sleep over at his place again seeing that many private investigators were monitoring them. At Antonio’s place, Olivia pretended to be having sex with him. When Vincent saw the video, he was so pissed off that he drove to Antonio’s place of work, and punched him in the face for daring to sleep with his girlfriend. He vowed not to pay him off.
But, Vincent’s lawyer (Acted by Alex Fernandez) met with Antonio and paid him $25,000. Antonio initially turned down the money, but, when the lawyer explained that he grew up like Antonio, he collected the money.
Antonio’s mum, Cecilia, died in the kitchen while their landlord, Mr. Kim was beside her. She was afterward buried.
Antonio and Olivia met and she sympathized with him over his mother’s death. Olivia ended her relationship with Vincent, while Kathryn filed for divorce after the truth was finally revealed. She took over the company and Vincent was arrested for some of his illegal deals.
