Jerry Welbach is given two ultimatums. His mob boss wants him to travel to Mexico to get a priceless antique pistol called "The Mexican" or he will suffer the consequences. The other ultimatum comes from his girlfriend Samantha, who wants him to end his association with the mob. Jerry figures that being alive, although in trouble with his girlfriend is the better alternative so he heads south of the border. Finding the pistol is easy but getting it home is a whole other matter. The pistol supposedly carries a curse - a curse Jerry is given every reason to believe, especially when Samantha is held hostage by the gay hit man Leroy to ensure the safe return of the pistol.

The apparently vicious "rabid dog" in the back of the truck is actually a Golden Retriever with its fur badly trimmed and dyed to look like a mutt - DVD commentary. See more »
When Jerry is drinking from a bottle of beer he puts it to the left of him on the bench. In another shot, just moments later, the bottle can be seen on the other side of the bench. See more »
Oh, Ok, I was under the impression, with Margolese getting out of jail and all, that the last job, was my last job.
You fucked up that job.
You fucked up that job, Jerry.
Yeah, this job, will be your last job.

Pitt and Roberts were a good match, and James Gandolfini really was the best part of this movie. A young man (Pitt) has to go to Mexico and retrieve an antique pistol for a mobster, much to the chagrin of his girlfriend (Roberts). Pitt encounters a lot of snags and hang ups trying to complete the task, and unknowingly, his girlfriend is being held as insurance until he finishes the job. Worth seeing! B+
