TUPELO SCREEN SCENE

Just because Julia Roberts has an Oscar nomination, that's no reason to expect all of her movies to be Oscar-quality.

"The Mexican," showing at the Cinemark, is a case in point. It's never going to win an award, but it is a decent way to spend a couple of hours.

It stars Brad Pitt as Jerry Welbach, a man fated to be a courier for the mob. Roberts plays Sam, Jerry's neurotic and demanding girlfriend.

It's fun to watch two of today's most charismatic actors share the screen, but their time together is limited. Jerry heads to Mexico in search of a fabled gun, while Sam gets kidnapped on the road to Las Vegas by "Leroy," a pleasant assassin played by James Gandolfini.

The Daily Journal's M. Scott Morris gives it a B.

Wizard 106.7's Kelli Karlson gives it a C plus. "I wish Brad Pitt had bathed more in the movie," she said. "Other than that, it was a pretty good movie. It's a definite wait-for-video."

Disc jockey Matt Chatham also gives it a C plus. "It was pretty good," he said. "It had some good humorous moments in it, but it was pretty drawn out."

Look for movie reviews in this slot each week and listen for them each Tuesday morning on Wizard 106.7 between 8:30 and 9 a.m.
