  1. Its narrative conceit will entertain for a while, but eventually you will long to disappear with the rest of the Mexicans.

    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."

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

    Doesn't know what it wants to be: either a goofball satire or a heavy-handed social-message movie.

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

    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.
