Born in East L.A.: Directed by Cheech Marin. With Cheech Marin, Paul Rodriguez, Daniel Stern, Kamala Lopez. When an L.A. born American citizen is mistaken for a Mexican illegal alien and deported to Mexico, he has to do everything he can to get across the border.
“I love this movie! Next to u0026quot;Shrimp on the Barbie,u0026quot; this is my favorite Cheech Marin movie as he goes on to prove he can actually be funny by not playing a pothead. A Mexican-American dragged across the border, he shows the lengths he is willing to go to return home and prove he is an American, but there is also a sensitive and heart-warming touch to his range as he proves he is also a good guy and not just some clown. Daniel Stern is also a hoot as an opportunist, and Paul Rodriguez flexes his comedic muscle that we his fans appreciate so much.”
