    The horrific events in Mexico are proving fertile ground for black comedy, and though Saving Private Perez is certainly not the blackest, it may well be the funniest.

    With its dark, wacky humor, some moments are reminiscent of last year's "Machete."

    If you don't get the jokes, there isn't a whole lot else to get, and it's a safe assumption that non-Latino, non-Spanish-speaking viewers are going to miss a lot of them.

    This Mexican action flick from director-writer Beto Gómez has all the makings of a great comedy only no one told the filmmakers.

    Who can think that is awful film can be better than Savin Private Ryan? The performance of the cast are awful, really this film is one of the worst things that I watch in all my life. Expand
