The horrific events in Mexico are proving fertile ground for black comedy, and though 'Saving Private Perez' is certainly not the blackest, it may well be the funniest. Mexico's most powerful drug lord rounds up a dirty half-dozen compadres to invade Iraq and rescue his kid brother in Beto Gomez's action-packed laffer, which, despite its title, never limits its parody to Steven Spielberg's WWII film, borrowing freely from various genres and styles to surprisingly consistent effect. Skedded for September release Stateside through Lionsgate's Pantelion arm, pic could maximize its crossover potential. By RONNIE SCHEIB- Variety
