Lively music helps. But it's more bullet-riddled escapade than an all-out laugh riot.

If you don't get the jokes, there isn't a whole lot else to get, and it's a safe assumption that non-Latino, non-Spanish-speaking viewers are going to miss a lot of them.

Audience Reviews for Saving Private Pérez


It was so much fun watching this. My only regret is that I waited so long to do so. I would like to say that it has exaggerations for comedic purposes, but I actually know people like this. If you ever get a chance to see this in a public setting, note the ones that are oohing awwing over the leads: wardrobe, accessories, etc.


Though moronic and slow at times, it does have it's fun moments of humor and action, with a pitch of a serious underlying theme.
