El Mariachi: It's strange how pulling a trigger is easier than playing the guitar. It's easier to destroy, than to create.
During the rooftop shootout Banderas reloads his gun (right hand one), than he takes another gun (the one in his belt) with the left hand. After a cut, Banderas reloads his right handed gun again and the left handed gun disappears. See more...
The American girl who is criticising the service in the Tarasco Bar (just before Quentin Tarantino walks in) is actually Robert Rodriguez's sister. See more...

The "questions" section is for any random questions that occurred to you while watching this film, or anything you didn't entirely understand, and which Google or the IMDb can't help with. Submit them as a question, and hopefully someone will answer (the bold comments in brackets) - check back regularly. If the answer is wrong, or missing information, please use the "clarify answer" option. Don't feel limited - want to know what music played in a certain scene? Whether this was the first film to use a certain effect? Here's the place to ask!
Question: I have two questions: 1) At the beginning of the movie, when Buscemi tells the story about the mariachi in this one bar in Saragossa, Tavo (the one Mexican that is later in the movie killed on the street by the mariachi) says something in Spanish, and all start laughing - does anybody know what he says?? 2)When the mariachi prepares to go to the Tarasco-Bar, in his bathroom, what song is played??
Answer: Tito Larriva as Tavo says (in reference to Steve Buscemi) that "This guy smells like shit."
Question: What is the song that is being played with Quentin Tarantino as he is first appeared in the bar. (Mostly the lyrics in it are "ohs" and "ahs").
Answer: It is called "Pass The Hatchet", and it is written by Ray Theriot, Roger Leon Jr. & Earl Stanley Oropeza. It was performed by Roger & The Gypsies. If you buy the soundtrack CD, it is on there, too.
