DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Romantic Comedy - This comedy thriller/road movie has its moments, but a poor decision regarding one of the characters causes things to fall apart in the last 30 minutes. Those expecting a lot of scenes featuring stars Julia Roberts & Bradd Pitt together will be disappointed.

Critic's Review Heading
Average
For roughly 90 minutes of its 2-hour running time, The Mexican is a moderately enjoyable, albeit feather-light, form of entertainment. Then, as the result of one ill-conceived scene around the three-quarters mark, the film goes as flat as a pancake. Nothing - not even an uncredited cameo appearance by a respected and well-known actor - can save The Mexican's turgid, disappointing conclusion, which has the unfortunate effect of muting many of the good things that came before it.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

BE SURE TO READ THE DETAILED CONTENT SECTION! A LOT of people didn't enjoy this movie and it appears, from the negative comments, that the excessive profanity and violence were not expected or enjoyed. This is NOT a typical romantic comedy! It is very light on the romance and comedy and heavy on the profanity and violence. When most of the opinions are in the "Very Good" and lower range, as these are, it indicates a movie most people enjoyed, but not all that much. If you're a big fan of any of the many stars in this movie, I would recommend seeing it, since a rental is cheap.

Publisher Comments: (before opinions collected)
Not great, but certainly an entertaining movie. Julia and Brad are fun to watch, and I suspect that most moviegoers won't be disappointed. It does get a bit slow at times and I'm sure that will be a complaint, but it's usually not long before something interesting happens.

Additional Note: Julia and Brad have a lot of screen time, but NOT together. They are only seen together at the beginning and end of the movie.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE

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.
