You could make a case that any movie in which Mexicans and rednecks become the best of friends is a net positive for society. But to do that, you'd have to ignore the severe boredom that sets in about halfway through this comedya Three Amigos with fewer laughsin which Larry the Cable Guy, Bill Engvall, and DJ Qualls play weekend warriors who somehow never imagine that being reservists in wartime might result in actually having to go to war. Sure enough they get called up, but one preposterous accident later, wind up in . . . Mexico . . . which they think is Iraq. Tee hee. Surely nobody expects Delta Farce to be much better than Ernest in the Army, or Pauly Shore's In the Army Now; what's sad is that it doesn't even live up to the comedic "standards" set by last year's Larry the Cable Guy: Health Inspector.
