A thick fog surrounds California's borders, communication beyond state lines is cut off, and the Mexicans disappear: workers, spouses, and business owners are missing. Cars are abandoned in the street, food is left cooking on the stove. We meet the wife of a musician who's gone, a state Senator whose maid doesn't show up for work, and a farm owner whose produce is ripe and unpicked. A scientist asks any Mexicans who haven't disappeared to volunteer for genetic experiments: a female newscaster and the daughter of the musician may be the only missing links around. Why them? And where have all the Mexicans gone? Even the border guards grieve. The state and its economy grind to a halt. Written by
When I first saw the ad campaign for this movie, I couldn't wait. Then I saw the trailer which made this film look like a great satirical film. Then I saw the film. All of the best (and pretty much only) funny gags are in the trailer, and what we are left with is a preachy, poorly acted, heavy handed PSA. There are too many storylines and many of them go nowhere and make a viewer wonder why they were there to begin with. This would have been much better as a short film. Shishar Kurup who plays Alex, the cameraman, is one of the few bright spots in this flick. I saw skip the movie and just watch the trailer.
