Wondering why times are missing?

Saving Private Perez

A huge hit in Mexico, this Spanish-language adventure comedy gets a chance to show its stuff north of the border. In it, a black-cowboy-hat-wearing Mexican drug lord (the go-to hero for countless Mexi-action films) is forced by his mother to go on a suicidal rescue mission to find his lost brother. And where has little bro gone missing? Try Iraq! The result is an absurdly funny fish-out-of-water comedy that manages to parody Saving Private Ryan, Mission: Impossible and countless direct-to-video Mexican narco novelas. In Spanish with English subtitles. 105 minutes PG-13.
