Like a Saturday Night Live skit that plays for 2 hours. I'm glad that Sergio Arau shows how if Mexicans were to dissapear all the low level jobs would have to be done by white people. Thatnks for setting back any progress Mexican Americans have made with your unfunny movie.

[font=Century Gothic]"A Day without a Mexican" is a film about a mysterious fog enveloping the state of California. Then, the entire Hispanic population disappears without a trace. Needless to say, this causes quite the disruption on the personal, economic and cultural levels. Even the border patrol agents are hurt.[/font]

[font=Century Gothic]"A Day without a Mexican" is not bad and well-intentioned with some good points on identity and racism. It raises the question about whether or not somebody can truly be illegal. But pedestrian writing and amateurish acting pretty much lower the whole enterprise to the level of a public service announcement. [/font]

Starts out funny, and then just stays rather boring...

This movie is really cheesy and looked like something from 1984 rather than 2004 but it does start a good conversation about immigration and makes you think!

This movie was disappoiting. It had a low production value and all the characters were just gross characterizations. The acting was not all that good. They could have done more with the movie, but instead they went for the cheesy.

I don't know when it gets funny, but not during any part I was watching. I would hardly call this movie social commentary. Yes, hispanics play a bigger role in society then people may give credit to, but this movie, with all the stereotypical humor, probably just set hispanics back a decade.

All premise. Looks like it was shot with a camera phone. An unbalanced attempt to drill into the viewer's head how important Mexicans are to our very survival. I can't imagine a day without Salma.

This movie tries really hard to be funny, but I just didn't find it enjoyable. Some chuckles here and there, but overall, a dud.

Had so much potential. They did a horrible job with a funny concept. I think I could've made a better movie with the same story line. If you can...skip this one.

Totally stupid... hold my hand and beat me over the head with the fact that our economy would suffer without mexicans... now throw in some crappy acting and horrible directing and I'll watch it because I'm stupid.

This movie shows how the U.S.A would be if all the MEXICANS would not be part of this land. So i recamond u c it.

The movie was somewhat strange but it sent a good mesage. It showed that everyone in society mattered, not just the wealthy white men. Proving that you can't live without the people you tend to look down on .

Good idea, terrible movie. A great premise that ends up being completely wasted.
