Description

Give us your tired, your poor — but keep Cheech Marin!

Cheech Marin, writes, directs and stars in Born In East L.A., a hip, outrageous comedy that's more timely than ever. The story follows Rudy (Marin), an American of Hispanic descent, whose south-of-the-border looks show him no mercy during an immigration raid in a migrant worker factory. As his luck goes, he is caught with neither money nor his ID and is deported to Mexico – without speaking a word of Spanish! Unable to contact his vacationing family or his newly immigrated cousin (played by comedian Paul Rodriguez), Rudy is in for a crazy ride as he tries every legal – and illegal – scheme he can think of to get back home. He finds himself in jail, in love, and practically in-sane in this hilarious case of mistaken, or rather, misplaced, identity!

Why We Love It

In its debut to the Blu-ray Disc format the film looks a bit more than just solid, it at times can look pretty impressive for a 1987 film in high def. There’s a lot of newfound detail here never seen before on the previous DVD. The sound also proves to be a bit more than just solid, with a lossless 2.0 mono mix that does the film somewhat justice.” Justin Sluss, highdefdiscnews.com
