In this occasionally funny (though not intentionally so) action film, an Italian gangster develops an ingenious way to smuggle Mexican diamonds into the US: he uses scuba divers. To stop them, two courageous Mexican detectives take the case. The funny parts come in when all of the action grinds to a halt while assorted popular singers sing their newest songs in an attempt to imitate a similar trend in Hollywood.
