Storyline

"Americano" centers around Chris McKinley, a recent college graduate backpacking through Europe who savors his last three days of freedom before boarding the career fast track back in the United States. In Pamplona with two friends, Chris meets an Australian thrill-seeker, a quintessential Spanish beauty and an enigmatic provocateur, all of whom encourage him to rethink his life. As the minutes and seconds until his departure tick away, Chris struggles with an age-old question: Should he follow the beaten path or risk it all on the road less traveled? Written by Zorianna Kit

pretentious American man meets annoying woman and they waste 2 hours of your time with their boring story
23 July 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is undoubtedly the most pretentious and terrible film I have ever watched. It is ignorant, trying to be cultured but just comes across as embarrassingly cringe-worthy and wooden. The main female character who is supposed to be (I think) passionate and exciting is instead annoying and fake. Its obviously an American portrayal of what they see as culture on this side of the ocean(European countries) but it does nothing but expose the ignorance of the American film industry. The only slightly redeeming fact about this movie is Jackson's character's best friend who is pretty funny (but is not even on the screen very much). I have never written a review on anything before but feel like it would be selfish in this case not to warn the rest of the world not to waste 2 hours watching this film as I have done. (well actually it was so bad I switched it off before the end). Basically if you ever think about watching this film...DON'T.
