YMMV / The Mexican

Go To

  • Alternative Character Interpretation: Fake Leroy/Winston. Did he really care for Sam or was he just tricking her to make Jerry give him the Mexican and deliver it to Naman.
    • The multiple stories in regards to the Mexican's origin story as well.
  • Fridge Brilliance - Winston telling Sam about the tattoo, saying that it's the name of someone he doesn't like very much. After you watch the movie again, you realize that he's talking about himself.
    • ''Naugahyde'.
  • Anvilicious / Some Anvils Need to Be Dropped: The moral dropped by Leroy/Winston: "When two people love each other, but can't get their shit together, when does it get to the point where enough is enough? Never".

  • The Scrappy: Samantha. It starts with her going on a tirade about Jerry not doing what they wanted to do instead of going to Mexico even when Jerry explicitly tells her that if he doesn't does his work for Margolese, a Mafia kingpin, he will be killed. Things only get worse from there — to the point that in one scene Jerry actually tries to crash a car to make her shut up (it's partially because he's trying to scare Leroy, but he's really that sick of her tirades).
  • So Okay, It's Average: It's not a bad film, but nothing special too. Most people attribute Julia and Brad's strong performances though.
  • The Woobie: The gunsmith's assistant and daughter, who lose their lives over the Mexican.

How well does it match the trope?
