Jason rented The Mexican for us on Saturday. I was a little less than enthused about his choice as I had heard not-so-great reviews of the movie and he usually goes for gritty-dark-True Romance-type movies, which I generally don't care for.
I was pleasantly surprised by this movie. It was quirky, fun, with just enough plot twists to keep my attention. There was a "historic back-story" that weaved its way into the modern plot. It had a nice little love story in it (although I think they made Julia Roberts' character to be more of a shrew than they needed to at points). In general, it was a fun movie to watch.
My only real complaint was there were quite a few loose-ends that weren't cleared up in the film itself. I felt much better about a couple of dangling story lines that were cleared up in the deleted scenes feature.
Overall, I would recommend this film - its one I'd like to own.
