Movie stars Diego Luna and Gael Garcia Bernal hope their new soccer movie inspires their native Mexicans to perfect their skills on the fields of South America - because they're sick of supporting a terrible team.
The two pals, who play rival soccer stars in Rudo Y Cursi, insist the glory days when Mexico was a world power are long gone and the national team is nothing like it once was.
Bernal jokes, "We try... We play a sport in Mexico with a ball and kicking it (sic) that is similar to the sport."
And his co-star adds, "I wish that was a joke, but it's not. If you see (Spanish club team) Barcelona playing and then you see our team playing. It does look like a different sport."
Bernal says, "Mexico is playing really bad right now."
