Storyline

Jorge 'Gordo' Fuentes, late 20s, is a hard-working, gifted taco maker from Mexico. Recently married and with a baby on the way, Gordo leaves his wildly popular taco stand and travels to America where he hopes to establish a successful Mexican restaurant in order to earn enough money to bring his family up north as well. Gordo arrives in Watsonville, CA where he stays with his cousin Joel who recognizes Gordo's taco talent and lands him a job at the local franchise of Cinco de Taco, a national food chain. Appalled at how the chain makes tacos, Gordo sneaks his own ingredients into the fast food restaurant and prepares tacos the way he did in Mexico... Written by Anonymous

Gordo (2006)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

Thanks to Showtime On Demand I'm getting to catch some of these shorts and this one here was highly entertaining. A Mexican man sells his special tacos at a stand in Mexico but his bigger dreams has him jump the border into the U.S.. Once here, he has hopes of becoming rich with his special ingredient but he ends up working for below wag at a Taco Bell like joint. This thing perfectly blends the comedy and the drama and with current political issues going on, the film makes a few nice statements. The comedy is great as it takes a lot of pot shots at "American" restaurants like Taco Bell. The performances were all very good and director Vince Navarro holds everything together nicely.
