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

That's what this movie is trying to yell into your ear. Now let me just say that I'm white and so maybe my view on this movie is a little one sided. But damn, this was one of the most racist films I've seen in a while. The film it self is very one sided and tries to push its agenda without showing any other side. I'm sure its suppose to be a comedy but I wasn't laughing. To me it was more irritating than anything else. Every once in a while these little "facts" would flash upon the screen. Some seemed to be very wrong...but of course I don't have all the facts. I'm sure some people will find this movie funny or whatever. But I found it to be very rediculous even in the realm of fantasy.
