The war on drugs has been going on a lot longer than the one in Iraq, and it might be just as futile. A huge ensemble cast goes in on every aspect of it (users, cops, dealers, and politicians) and somehow makes two-and-a-half hours go by quicker than a nitrous high. Or so we hear.

Both the DEA and the Customs Department helped point out inaccuracies in the script, even granted the crew access to a Mexico border checkpoint for filming.
