Critic Reviews for Immigration Tango
A lazy film that inadvertently romanticizes the efforts of immigration enforcement. By the end, you'll be cheering for deportation.
Neither the comedy nor the romance is strong enough in "Immigration Tango'' to offer any improvement on Peter Weir's similar, and better, 1990 film "Green Card.''
Immigration Tango is the kind of surreally terrible comedy you'd come across on HBO at three in the morning...in the 1980s.
"Immigration Tango" is like a slow-dance with your sister - perfunctory, awkward and without a hint of heat.
A minor, sometimes likable romp through miscellaneous narrative clichés, all of them rendered with the snug medium shots and predetermined character arcs that are coin of the realm on the tube.
This lame sex comedy doesn't exactly add much to the debate over illegal immigrants.
The stuff of sitcoms. Complications, of course, ensue, but they're exactly the complications you expect, with exactly the results.
Leon is actually kind of charming as an actor, but he's completely wasted in this bomb.
A sprightly, pedestrian, Miami-set romantic comedy whose utter predictability -- trumpet fanfares couldn't announce plot twists more blatantly -- feels more cozy than disappointing.
It might have been a premise for an effective romantic comedy that pointed up the plight of undocumented immigrants, but Morris and his co-writers aren't up to the task.
When romantic comedy fails, it is often accompanied by a flatulent fizzle, but this one is already D.O.A.
The movie never comes close to making you believe such an arrangement between these people could ever exist.
This is a film in which characters are flung out of character solely for cheap laughs and rarely actually listen or talk to one another.
