A pair of naive young girls learn that even the most insignificant actions can have lasting consequences. Influenced by the hip-hop thug lifestyle and seeking to explore life outside of their insulated, culturally homogenized suburb, pretty young teenagers Allison and Emily set their sights on East L.A. to experience the "gangsta" lifestyle firsthand. By the time the pair meet a ruthless Mexican drug dealer named Hector, some true-life Latino gang-bangers, and realize just how far out of their element they really are, it may already be too late to turn back.

Channing Tatum's stunt double in this movie, Mark Foran, was a very prominent hockey player from Miramichi, New Brunswick, Canada. He can be seen as an extra in many other movies, but mainly does stunt work for Tatum. See more »

White people are idiots and naive,Latin people are drug dealers,that's how the world thinks about the USA. And everyone wants to be black?Unjust?Unreal?
What about "U-571", "The Da Vinci Code", "Kingdom of Heaven"? There are many lies in that movies but nobody cares.
About the Anne: In my opinion the main character was played well. Anne Hathaway who is trying to distance herself from her previous Disney movie image by choosing a role where she's naked as often as possible.She really does a great job as the pretty little rich girl.
BTW The best characters were Hector and his gang.
