Wassappenin?! Cheech Marin skewers border politics in this hilariously off-kilter comedy. Rudy was born in East L.A., but when he goes to pick up his cousin – the factory is raided by immigration officers, and he gets deported to Mexico regardless of not speaking a word of Spanish. Now it’s up to Rudy to sneak his way back across the border.  So pull your headband into the cool position and get ready to laugh your ass off with this 80s comedy classic.
