* UnfortunateImplications: This may be almost imperceptible for American and foreign audiences, but not for Mexican ones: The message of the entire movie is that Mexicans inmigrants are important for the American economy. Yeah, that's OK, except that it ''conveniently ignores'' the contribution of Central and South American immigrants, and if the Mexicans disappeared from the U.S., the Central and South Americans could replace them without any problems. But, since the movie was [[CreatorProvincialism directed by Mexicans]] and Mexicans normally treat Central Americans (and sometimes, South Americans) [[NoKoreansInJapan in the same way Japanese treats Koreans in Japanese media]] it's obvious that the movie suffers from the Mexican version of AmericaSavesTheDay.
** But even then, that is actually a plot point of the film and explains the title choice. It is said several times how most Americans believe that Latinos are basically and only Mexicans (they even showed it in the "trivia" facts that there are more than 40 countries besides Mexico). Yeah it was more focused on the Mexicans, but the anvilicious aesop taking ALL Latinamericans was still there. It even had cases about people from El Salvador, Argentina and other countries which are pretty much Central and South Americans, and they all dissapeared, not just the Mexicans, so there wouldn't be any other Latin to replace them.

* UnfortunateImplications: This may be almost imperceptible for American and foreign audiences, but not for Mexican ones: The whole message the whole movie gives is: Mexicans inmigrants are important for the American economy. Yeah, that's OK, except the movie ''conveniently ignores'' the contribution of Central and South American immigrants in the U.S. society and if the Mexicans dissapears from the U.S., the Central and South Americans can replace them without any problems. But, since the movie was [[CreatorProvincialism directed by Mexicans]] and Mexicans normally treats Central Americans (and sometimes, South Americans) [[NoKoreansInJapan in the same way Japanese treats Koreans in Japanese media]] it's obvious that the movie suffers of the Mexican version of AmericaSavesTheDay.

** FridgeBrilliance: All of their maps were on the computers, the server was down, and the IT guy was also Mexican?
*** [[FridgeLogic Though one now wonders why they didn't just get an atlas or a road map from a gas station.]]
*** [[RunningGag The clerk was also Mexican.]]

Added DiffLines:

* {{Anvilicious}}: About the benefits immigrants give to the U.S.
* SoBadItsGood: Basically the entire movie.
* SpecialEffectFailure: That weather map post-disappearance was overly crude. Yes, all the satellites were gone, but surely the new weatherman (the old one was a Mexican) had something ''other'' than magic marker to work with?
