- Both A Million to Juan's Paul Rodriguez and Tony Plana have worked with Edward James Olmos in other films, including "American Family", Beverly Hills Chihuahua; and America, "Robert Altman's Gun", "Miami Vice", Zoot Suit, "The Burning Season", "The Princess and The Barrio Boy".
A Million to Juan is a sweet rags-to-riches tale based on a story, "The Million Pound Bank Note," by the legendary Mark Twain.
