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 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.
The stuff of sitcoms. Complications, of course, ensue, but they're exactly the complications you expect, with exactly the results.
This lame sex comedy doesn't exactly add much to the debate over illegal immigrants.
Leon is actually kind of charming as an actor, but he's completely wasted in this bomb.
A lazy film that inadvertently romanticizes the efforts of immigration enforcement. By the end, you'll be cheering for deportation.
Immigration Tango is the kind of surreally terrible comedy you'd come across on HBO at three in the morning...in the 1980s.
