Brad Pitt is Jerry, a low-level Mafia "mechanic" whose ineptitude is countered by frequent bursts of dumb luck. Julia Roberts is Jerry's girlfriend, and she wants him to get out of the business. Before Jerry can depart ways with the mob, he must do one last errand – go to Mexico and recover a rare, valuable, and possibly cursed pistol known as “The Mexican.” He finds the weapon with ease, but making his way back to the States proves to be more challenging, especially when hired hitman Leroy (James Gandolfini) plans to kidnap Samantha until Jerry comes back. Director Gore Verbinski (PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN) brings to the screen a unique mix of action-comedy and road-movie chaos in this unpredictable, original hit.

Ratings and Reviews
Critics Consensus: Though The Mexican makes a good attempt at originality, its ponderous length makes it wear out its welcome. Also, those looking forward to seeing Roberts and Pitt paired up may end up disappointed, as they are kept apart for most of the movie.
An interesting mess for older teens and up.
