Neither the comedy nor the romance is strong enough in "Immigration Tango'' to offer any improvement on Peter Weir's similar, and better, 1990 film "Green Card.''

"Immigration Tango" is like a slow-dance with your sister - perfunctory, awkward and without a hint of heat.

Immigration Tango is the kind of surreally terrible comedy you'd come across on HBO at three in the the 1980s.
