CUPID STRIKES WITH BOTH BARRELS
Two parallel yet intertwined stories and a stellar cast make THE MEXICAN a clever, offbeat comedy-thriller. Academy Award winner Julia Roberts and Brad Pitt, in their first film together, play a battling couple headed for a split after Jerry (Pitt) agrees to embark on one last task for a dangerous mob boss much to the dismay of his strong-willed, independent girlfriend Samantha (Roberts). Jerry sees the errand as a quick score - he s to travel to Mexico to retrieve a legendary, hand crafted pistol known as The Mexican . But Jerry s trip south of the border not only explodes into a series of mishaps, missteps, and misadventures, but his hilariously ill-fated errand draws Samantha into the plot as well when she s nabbed by a troubled hitman (The Sopranos James Gandolfini, in a scene stealing performance) and held captive to ensure that Jerry completes his assignment. Will Jerry get the gun And the girl And his normal life back You re in for a non-stop roller coaster ride of thrills, danger and laughs in this wild and unpredictable search for The Mexican.
