Immigration Tango Reviews

"Immigration Tango" is like a slow-dance with your sister - perfunctory, awkward and without a hint of heat.

Immigration Tango is the kind of surreally terrible comedy you'd come across on HBO at three in the morning...in the 1980s.

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.

A lazy film that inadvertently romanticizes the efforts of immigration enforcement. By the end, you'll be cheering for deportation.

Leon is actually kind of charming as an actor, but he's completely wasted in this bomb.

The stuff of sitcoms. Complications, of course, ensue, but they're exactly the complications you expect, with exactly the results.

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.

The movie never comes close to making you believe such an arrangement between these people could ever exist.

Film Journal International

When romantic comedy fails, it is often accompanied by a flatulent fizzle, but this one is already D.O.A.

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.

This lame sex comedy doesn't exactly add much to the debate over illegal immigrants.

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.''

A sprightly, pedestrian, Miami-set romantic comedy whose utter predictability -- trumpet fanfares couldn't announce plot twists more blatantly -- feels more cozy than disappointing.
