Synopsis

Brad Pitt stars as Jerry Welbach, a reluctant bagman, who has been given two ultimatums: The first is from his mob boss to travel to Mexico and retrieve a priceless antique pistol, known as “The Mexican”…or suffer the consequences. The second is from his girlfriend Samantha (Julia Roberts) to end his association with the mob. Jerry figures alive and in trouble with Samantha is better than the more permanent alternative, so he heads south of the border.
Finding the pistol proves easy. Getting it home is another matter. “The Mexican” supposedly carries a legendary curse – a legend Jerry is given every reason to believe…especially when Samantha is taken hostage by a hit man (James Gandolfini) to ensure the safe return of the pistol.

Dove Review

This ultra-violent and obscene screwball “romantic” comedy reveals good chemistry between its two leads and a superb performance by “The Soprano’s” James Gandolfini, but each crises (and there are several) is highlighted by crudity, profanity and comic bloodshed. There are a lot of gross-out situations and the coarse language becomes unbearable (70 uses of the F-word, alone).
