the attempts to get back to the states is pretty damn funny. But the truth is so sad.

The original poster for this was brilliant. I can barely remember the film though.

A good vehicle for cheech martin about a U.S citizen of Mexican heritage getting mistakingly sent to mexico as a deporte and having to try to get back in but also living the Mexican way for a while, there are some entertaining moiments and comments about Mexican imigration, Marin is likeable and while not everything comes of well, and certainly at times brags up the american way, its a enjoyable watch from the 80s and makes me want to seek out more Marin

I watched this movie as a 14 year old on VHS. Even then, it kind of sucked. Fortunately, I was only 14, and easily amused, so I watched it 4 more times before we took the tape back to the video store. Sucked every time.

i'll remember i seen this movie in the theater i was about 7 and i'll remember i was an afraid with rudy (cheech marin) in tattoo scene. so now im so enjoy this movie of cheech marin the starring, written, and the director this film.

this is a good funniest comedy movie of with cheech marin did great role as rudy of the character. this is the good opening credit with the red-hair female walking by. i wish tommy chong appear an cameo and tommy is to turned it down and i wish myself that he should an cameo (sadly). so this is the funny plot and paul rodriguez (javier) also starring and funniest character also role as rudy's cousin.

A decent enough comedy. It stars Cheech Marin who gets deported to Mexico. Now he must get back to the States and back to East LA where he lives. Some funny moments in the film. Kind of low brow comedy but still funny. Not a great comedy but still worth maybe a one time watch for Cheech Marin fans.
