A shy student trying to reach his family in Ohio, and a gun-toting tough guy trying to find the Last Twinkie and a pair of sisters trying to get to an amusement park join forces to travel across a zombie-filled America.
Writer Francisco Payó González worked also as a creative assistant to director Beto Gómez during preproduction and filming of the movie. Other tasks for the screenwriter consisted in writing new dialogue for the Arab, Turkish and Russian characters that in the screenplay only were mentioned as speaking foreign dialogue that the main Mexican characters didn't understand, but that required to say "something" at the time of the filming. These new pages of dialogue were sent to a translator, who send the translations back to Francisco Payó González and to a Dialogue Coach, this last one preparing the actors and extras with their particular foreign dialogs during preproduction. On the set, a new Dialogue Coach was in coordination again with Francisco Payó González to make adjustments at the very time of the shooting, not only to help the actors but also to cut things in order to help the pace of the scene. Neverthless, many pages of this kind of dialogue were written to prevent any eventuality or need, even for characters whose scenes were deleted or shortened in the edition room. See more »
When I thought there were enough "narco" (drug dealers) movies, I saw the trailer of this movie... I believed there was something special in this movie, and, though I was wrong, anyway I had a funny time. This film deals with the typical Mexican stereotypes: drug trafficking, immigration,family values, etc. All in all,this film is a set of different hilarious gags, gags that perhaps a foreigner couldn't understand. The performances were pretty good, specially Miguel Rodarte (as Julián Pérez, the typical Mexican drug dealer), Jesus Ochoa (as Chema) and Gerardo Taracena (as Carmelo,a tomato farmer). As I said, this movie features numerous gags of physical humor, puns, and stereotypical characters. It is not a smart movie. It is not a movie with a message. It's only a funny movie for people who just wanna have a laugh. Anyway, this is one of the best Mexican films I've seen in recent years.
