Well-meaning misfire about wacky complications and a mysterious stranger in a devout Southwestern hamlet when the image of Jesus manifests itself on a tortilla. The ensemble comedy-drama by first-time feature director Judy Hecht Dumontet, who also co-wrote the script, finds curmudgeonly nonbeliever Isidor Navarro (Jose Zuniga), owner of the Tortilla Heaven restaurant in a tiny New Mexican town, caught between a miracle and Mammon as his friends, family, the mayor and the local priest (all played by a remarkably high-profile cast of Latino actors including George Lopez, Alexis Cruz, Elpidia Carrillo, Irene Bedard, Geno Silva, Marcelo Tubert and Ana Ortiz, who is on TV's "Ugly Betty") try to cash in on pilgrimage tourism with the help of a shady dealmaker (an excellent Miguel Sandoval). The film contains the occasional crude epithet and mild profanity, rear nudity, some sexual humor and a lightly irreverent end gag. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
