Storyline

Two brothers leave their home in Mexico in search of the 'American Dream', only to realize it was in front of them all the time. Angel is tired of living in his small Mexican town and has no interest in following in his father's footsteps. Instead he resolves to run away, across to cross the border and find his American dream. His older brother, Carlos, has plans of his own and they don't involve leaving home. When Angel tells his older brother of his grand scheme Carlos knows he won't be able to stop him, so he decides to tag along in order to watch over his headstrong little brother. Double-crossed by a smuggler, they find themselves alone in the desert. What follows is a strange and hilarious adventure filled with crazy characters and eye-opening truths until they finally realize the dream they were chasing was back home where they started.

Soooo Funny!
29 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie during the RiverRun Film Festival and it is so funny. The two main guys are hilarious and the cowboy guy has a really funny scene which is totally unexpected out in the desert while the two guys are hiding, but i won't ruin it for anyone and tell you what he does. This movie was really hilarious, looked great and had a great story. There was a fairly Long question session after the film with the producer and i was surprised at how much info about immigration was kind of snuck inside. I didn't really notice a lot of it until everyone else started asking questions about it. Great film, would love to see it again. If anyone knows if i can get it on DVD let me know. I know, I should have asked at the festival, oops.
