(2001)

Trivia

It was on the set of this movie that Julia Roberts met her husband, cameraman Daniel Moder.
The apparently vicious "rabid dog" in the back of the truck is actually a Golden Retriever with its fur badly trimmed and dyed to look like a mutt.
James Gandolfini reportedly lost 35 pounds for his role as Winston, all of which he had to gain back before shooting re-commenced on the upcoming season of The Sopranos (1999) because producer David Chase believed that "The Sopranos" audience would not like a "skinny" Tony (Soprano).
Throughout the film, Jerry (and others) is seen to carry his handgun inside the front of the waistband but without a holster. Appropriate to the movie, this is known as "Mexican carry".
Second film in a trilogy of films starring James Gandolfini & Brad Pitt, which consists of True Romance (1994), The Mexican (2002), & Killing Them Softly (2010).

In the scene where Jerry (Brad Pitt) is amusingly attempting to speak Spanish (widely spoken in Mexico) when saying to some men, "I need a lift in your El trucko to the next towno", there is also a reference to Robert De Niro. Pitt and De Niro co-starred in Sleepers (1996).
