Storyline

Emilio, a Colombian con man, arrives in LA with two weeks to complete his plan to rob a former colleague, Claudio Silvestrini, who's made a fortune using infomercials to peddle snake oil to Latin immigrants. Emilio's friend Alejandro, who sells pirated DVDs, has assembled a team of amateurs, who, as Alejandro says, will go unnoticed because they're immigrants. The team must gain entry to Silvestrini's well-guarded mansion, steal two keys to access a vault, and then get the money off the property. A father and his tomboy daughter, a nervous Cuban actor, a techie, and a muscle man make up the team, plus Alejandro has been courting Silvestrini's nanny. Will they be enough?

Trivia

Not being telenovela viewers, the English-speaking crew were unfamiliar with the superstar status of the various actors and were often confused by the mobs of Spanish-speaking housewives encroaching upon the set on a daily basis. See more »

A must see one!
1 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just came from watching this movie, and I couldn't wait to tell you that this movie is a must see one. I really enjoyed it. It's an action, adventure and comedy movie. It doesn't get boring, you will be all the time either laughing or tensed. Besides being an enjoyable movie, it also gives a message to the audience. And shows how real life is in nowadays in the U.S. The actors are fantastic! I can't complain about them. You have to watch it, doesn't matter if you speak Spanish or not, but you have to see it (It's really understandable). I kind of disagree with the trailer because, it doesn't show the movie as interesting and funny as it is. After you watched it, you'll know what I'm talking about. I don't want to tell you the story because I want you to actually enjoy it and try to "infer" what will happen. The movie ends in a way you never thought of. That's the magic of thieves! But remember, thieves can rob other thieves!
