There is nothing about this movie that isnt just silly and that includes its title, Saving Private Prez (Salvando al soldado Prez). If you going to use a title like that, it should at least belong to a comedy. But, no, this is a Mexican film that certainly seems to be playing the action-adventure straight although it will evoke laughter of the unintended sort.
