Movie Info

The boys put their heads together and hilariously came up with a brilliant solution. Twelve hours later, armed with 8 super-plus tampons to plug the leak in Stinky's mechanical housing, the robot was lowered into the pool again. Only this time, Stinky performed admirably. Fast forward to a shocking result. This rag-tag high school team of undocumented Mexican boys did what no one thought possible - they won!. The competition, however, was only the beginning. These boys forged a legacy that could not have been imagined. A legacy of aspiration. Of activism. Of dreamers. (c) AMC Theaters

Modest yet meaningful, "Underwater Dreams" has a political point of view, shining light on underground Americans who deserve recognition.

Top Critic

The film is dismayingly formless, every point is made too many times, and there's too little drama or revelation here.
