Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka

Mexican comic "El Clavillazo," otherwise known as Antonio Espino stars in this film by José Morales-Díaz, yet another comedy in which Clavillazo plays himself, not unusual for many comedians. The title could be understood as referring to the U.S. since anything "north" in Mexican parlance has that connotation -- and the story is a parody of a Western. Clavillazo takes on the role of a sharp-shooting outlaw in the vein of a Jesse James or similar legends from the wild West. The script is too weak to sustain the talents of the cast, which counts famous singer Javier Solis among its number.
