FOUR STARS! A deeply preposterous event from modern Mexican history has been turned into a watchable and good-natured dramedy-thriller starring Gael Garcia Bernal. In 1985, Mexico was horrified when thieves were reported to have broken into the National Museum of Anthropology in Mexico City and stolen 140 priceless Mayan and Aztec objects; the news media solemnly reported that the heist was surely the work of a sophisticated international gang. Their patriotic outrage turned to embarrassment when the crime was found to be the work of two students, smart or reckless enough to have carried out the robbery but too stupid to have grasped that no one would wish to buy the goods. These objects were simultaneously priceless and worthless.The students are re-imagined as two criminal non-masterminds who are out of their depth as soon as they hit the water.

It is edge-of-the-seat stuff when Juan and Wilson have to break into the glass case that holds an unimaginably precious Mayan mask. And then Juan and Wilson set off on their chaotic and incompetent journey to sell their knapsack full of treasure. The film weirdly echoes other Bernal two-person road movies: Y Tu Mamá También andThe Motorcycle Diaries….It’s a very entertaining night in the museum. --The Guardian

“A fun, stylish, singular heist flick that's about so much more than the theft itself.” –Los Angeles Times
