The Mexican | 2001 | R | - 3.7.10

A mob errand runner (Brad Pitt) has to go to Mexico to retrieve a priceless pistol, but he also has to keep his promise to his girlfriend (Julia Roberts) that this trip is his last as a mobster. Also with James Gandolfini, Bob Balaban and J.K. Simmons. [2:03]

SEX/NUDITY 3 - Sexual innuendo that isn't very graphic (including references to homosexuality, prostitutes and pornography). A man and woman kiss in two different scenes (in one scene the woman doesn't kiss back). A man urinates on a wall and a man sits on a toilet with underwear around his ankles (no nudity is visible in either scene). We see a bare-chested man lying in bed; it's implied that he had sex with another man the night before. Twice we see a bare-chested man, and we also see a man wearing a T-shirt and underwear.

VIOLENCE/GORE 7 - Many people are shot, often resulting in bloody, fatal wounds: a woman shoots herself in head and then falls into a pool of her blood; a man is shot a few times and blood spurts from the wound (he then dies); a man's neck is shot and blood trickles out of the bullet hole as he dies; a few men are shot and we see one's bloody abdomen, blood under one victim's nose and on his teeth, and blood on another victim's forehead and shirt, as well as on rocks around him; a man shoots and kills another man and we see a woman's horrified reaction; a man shoots a gun but it backfires and kills him; and a man threatens to shoot another to death and then shoots the man's foot. Lots of threatening with guns (including two instances of a man holding a gun on a woman while covering her mouth with his hand, four different scenes in which a gun is held to a man's head, and a few instances of a crowd being threatened with a gun and men holding guns on each other simultaneously); also, several shots are fired (a man dodges bullets as he's shot at many times, a man shoots out a car's headlights, and a man shoots at a door many times). We hear about a man jumping from a hotel window, which upsets two people (but we do not see the actual jump). A man is punched twice in the face; a woman throws a suitcase at a man's head, then throws another object that hits him in the face; and two people bump their heads. A woman is locked in a car trunk. In two scenes of reckless driving a car is almost hit and the occupants nearly killed (they are scared by this); also, a car is nearly hit by a few trucks, and in another scene we hear the noise of a loud car crash. A dog growls at a man and startles him, a dog barks menacingly at a man, and a dog stands guard on a man by growling at him. We see blood on a corpse, a bathroom stall and on a woman's neck, face and collar after a shooting; also, we see a man with a bullet hole in his cap and head (blood is on his cap, hand, head and car seat). We see a man with a small bloody cut on his nose, blood on another man's fingers, and a dried blood stain on a car seat a couple of times. We see a dead cow.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
