Audience Reviews for A Day Without a Mexican

  • Dec 24, 2008
    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!

    I know I've seen this movie but it was pretty forgettable.

    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.
