Audience Reviews for Down Mexico Way


Like Gaucho Serenade this is a road trip flick to Mexico, and the actor playing Pancho almost steals the movie. Better music, Autry looks stoned singing Ai-yi-yi in his laid back country style and the white actors in "mexican" face paint seems extremely odd (reminded me of the actors playing Klingons on the 1960's Star Trek) but the story is a lot of fun and keeps the family entertained.
