In essence, Pitt and Roberts don’t actually share that much screen time, and it’s more of a thriller really; "The Mexican" is actually the name of a gun.
Pitt plays Jerry, Julia Roberts’ husband, who has to get his hands on said "Mexican".
Incidentally, Julia Roberts met her husband, Daniel Moder, during the making of
. Moder was a cameraman on set. They now have babies. How lovely.
