When Jerry Welbach (Brad Pitt) smashed into mobster Arnold Margolese's (Gene Hackman) car, police were called to the scene immediately.  Much to Margolese's chagrin, that led to the cops discovering a tied up body in his trunk.

As punishment for the accident, Margolese's crew forces Jerry to run errands for them.  For his most recent assignment Welbach is Mexico bound in search of a cursed antique gun dubbed, 'The Mexican.'  Getting the gun is an easy task, but returning to America in one piece may prove more difficult.

The Mexican was nominated for a Golden Globe.  It earned $147 million at the box office, more than double its $57 million budget.
