  • As the moving concluding scenes cement, "Mariachi Gringo" is right on pitch - and, happily, not simply as you'd expect.

  • Amid this malarkey Gustafson is smart enough to let the camera linger on musical performances that reveal mariachi to be dynamic and complex as opera.

  • While the premise feels a bit thin and the overall progress never strays far from fish-out-of-water formula, the execution is consistently ingratiating, even when it frustrates by raising ideas that go undeveloped.

  • Exceedingly irritating

  • A road trip movie filled with simple pleasures. Ashmore does a solid job as a mariachi musician without a single grenade-launcher in his guitar case.
