Worth Watching

My family and I enjoyed this movie. The stereotypes were flagrant but funny for Americans. The Mexican characters often defied stereotypes. The story is light, heartwarming, and funny. Worth watching.

Could have been such a great movie

This movie was very heartfelt and funny at the same time. My problem was how they use manipulation to play on people's emotions. It made every white person look like a redneck hateful racist that treats any race other than their own like animals. How insulting! This movie could have been so amazing!

This title has:

Too much swearing
