"The Pest" Pestario Vargas (John Leguizamo) is a low rent con man from Miami's South Beach who has fallen deeply in debt to ill tempered members of the Scottish mafia. Pest is desperate to raise $50,000 to stave off having his legs broken, Vargas takes an offer for a very high paying one day job from Gustav Shank (Jeffrey Jones), a German businessman visiting Florida. However, it's not until later that Vargas finds out what Shank has in mind. The lunatic white supremacist Shank transports Vargas to his island compound, "Little Germany," and announces that he will hunt him as wild game. If Vargas can survive for 24 hours, he gets the cash; otherwise, his head will join the others stuffed and mounted on Shank's wall. I know this movie got bad rating, but you must understand its supposed to be funny and it is just stupid harmless fun. John Leguizamo is very funny as "The Pest" and what a great choice as the bad guy "Ed Rooney" Jeffrey Jones. If you are looking for some stupid laughs this movie is for you.
