The Mexican is a 2001 romantic comedy about Jerry (Brad Pitt), a Mafia grunt whose life seems to consist of varying good and bad luck. One of his most infamous bursts of bad luck occured when Jerry caused a traffic accident. He might have just escaped with some bruises, but instead Jerry wound up hitting Arnold Margolese (Gene Hackman), a notorious Mafia boss. Since the accident caught the attention of the police and saw Margolese locked away in jail, Jerry is still trying to pay off his debt to the mob. During the five years since the accident, Jerry has been carrying out menial tasks under the watchful eye of Margolese's henchman, Bernie (Bob Balaban). Jerry just has one more task to carry out before he is a free man, much to the relief of his dissatisified girlfriend, Samantha (Julia Roberts). All Jerry has to do is retrieve an antique pistol from Mexico, but when Samantha wounds up kidnapped and it turns out the pistol is cursed, he wonders if he will ever manage to free himself from his complicated situation.moreless
