    A terrific premise is mangled to a pulp, then beaten to death in this forced mockumentary.

    Much of the humor is overly familiar, and the broader elements feel strained when it veers toward melodrama in its final third.

    Doesn't know what it wants to be: either a goofball satire or a heavy-handed social-message movie.
  4. 25
    Approach is too heavy-handed to have much effect. Rod Serling probably could have turned the premise into an enjoyable episode of "The Twilight Zone."
  5. Its narrative conceit will entertain for a while, but eventually you will long to disappear with the rest of the Mexicans.

    What a horrible movie, I thought it was going to be a great satire but it turned down pretty bad. Not interesting, very dull and lame movie.What a horrible movie, I thought it was going to be a great satire but it turned down pretty bad. Not interesting, very dull and lame movie.
