The best scenes are between James Gandolfini and Julia Roberts: some of these are quite affecting. Gandolfini's character is interesting and his acting excellent. The rest of the film is an action/romantics farce which I found fun and The best scenes are between James Gandolfini and Julia Roberts: some of these are quite affecting.

Even the all star cast couldnt really bring alot out of what is an average script at best. Roberts, Pitt and Gandolfini were all superb but at the end of the day the storyline got lost in itself and by the end I couldnt wait for it to finish.

The subject is the action base and is present even in the legend around the ill- fated gun which gives its name to the film. Directed by Gore Verbinski, the film revolves around the search for an old pistol, ordered by an American mobster to one of his henchmen. It turns out that the henchmen is going through a crisis in courtship and his girlfriend turns out to follow him to Mexico, along with other potentially interested in obtaining the ancient relic.

The main actors in this movie are Brad Pitt (Jerry on paper), Julia Roberts (as Samantha, Jerry's girlfriend), James Gandolfini (as Winston killer) and Gene Hackman (in the role of Margolese, the big boss). Pitt works well in his role, managing to be very good in action scenes and very funny in the most comic parts. Julia Roberts equals him in humor and his boldness makes an excellent counterpoint to the more timid personality Jerry. Its nice to see that the way Pitt and Roberts counteracted this film, giving greater strength to Their fictional relationship. The sets and costumes were well thought out and make use of an elegant and friendly way, the stereotypes about Mexicans.

Not being a memorable film, it is certainly an interesting movie, good for a leisurely late afternoon. Entertains the audience very well, and that is enough for an openly unpretentious film like this.
