TCP - The Mexican



Once again it's Tuesday Couch Potatoes hosted by Kikamz and this week theme couchers will features a movie that is total disappointment. My pick is the movie "The Mexican" starring Brad Pitt and Julia Roberts. It Was A Disappointment movie for me. I was expecting a box office hit, awesome, romantic, and funny from this comedy movie. I guess my expectation was too high that even the biggest actors and actress in Hollywood came out boring. It was a very boring, lousy movie of Brad Pitt and Julia Roberts. It's not even funny at all. I think the story of the movie is not that good. For more movies you find disappointment head on over to Just About Anything.



Starring: Brad Pitt, Julia Roberts, James Gandolfini, Bob Balaban, Michael Cerveris, Castulo Guerra, David Krumholtz, J.K. Simmons, Sherman Augustus
Director: Gore Verbinski
Genre: Comedies

Synopsis: Brad Pitt and Julia Roberts have star power to burn in Gore Verbinski's offbeat THE MEXICAN, about the search for a cursed legendary gun.

Pitt stars as Jerry Welbach, a small-time loser who is given no choice but to run an errand for a powerful boss (Bob Balaban) who will have him killed if he fails. But if he accepts the job to go to San Miguel to pick up the beautiful handcrafted gun known as the Mexican, his loud, demanding girlfriend, Samantha (Roberts), will leave him and move to Vegas. But through a course of bizarre events, his contact is shot in the top of his head, the gun is stolen, and Sam is kidnapped and held hostage by a hired killer (James Gandolfini) who is not all that he seems. Verbinski tells this humorous tale of love, trust, double crosses, and murder as part road-trip comedy, part wacky film noir. The supporting cast, including terrific turns by J.K. Simmons, Bob Balaban, and Michael Cerveris, makes for the requisite bunch of second-rate hoods and other lowlifes. Pitt and Roberts are excellent as the always-battling couple, but Gandolfini steals the show as a sensitive hit man with a dangerous secret. The excellent soundtrack includes such classic songs as "These Boots Are Made for Walkin'" and "Safety Dance."
