We gave it a C+

In the turgid process of going from aimless drunk to handicapped avenger, Eric Roberts’ seamy would-be author empties lots of bedpans, eats a roach, and gets trodden on by cows. As intoxicatingly inane as the south-of-the-border scuzz-fest La Cucaracha is, Roberts’ super-eager overacting and the film’s lackadaisical unpredictability somehow keep your finger from hitting the stop button. C+
