Based on the true story of the Mexcian janitor at Frito-Lay who brought the world super-spicy snacks, this feel-good flick is a great, uplifting story that’ll make you instantly wonder how you’ve never heard even a bit of it before. Eva Longoria, directing her first feature, pulls off the fascinating story like a seasoned pro, keeping the pace up throughout. Kudos also to leads Jesse Garcia and Annie Gonzalez for sinking their all into the roles, giving the film plenty of heart. It’s a fun little flick (just as it should be)—just shy of being all that and a bag of… well, you know.

3.5/5 stars
