This is not a bad movie. Its an AWFUL movie.
Predictable, full of clichés and horrible jokes.
This movie was made just to lure U2 into coming back to México. And they bit, that's the worst part of the story.
A guy bets the lifetime savings from his girlfriend's parents (who, of course, can access her parents account without any warning) and bets it on an underground betting game in order to make money to bring U2 to Mexico.
As expected, he loses the game and gets in trouble. Thank God the mafia don loves U2 and, lo and behold, the kid has 7 days to convince not only other investors, but the band's manager to play a gig in Mexico. Piece of cake.
Incredibly badly written, even worst acting (specially from Camil who can't act to save his life) and the rest is a poor excuse for a movie. U2 fans who were attracted to this filth because they were told the band would appear in the movie, only get bad footage from the Vertigo tour tried to be synchronized with a song, which just doesn't happen.
I think there should be fines for people who make movies this bad.
