Description:

Miami scam artist Pest Vargas (John Leguizamo) is on the run from the Scottish mob and a German headhunter, the mob after 50,000 dollars, the German guy after his head. Pest dons many disguises in an attempt to evade their clutches. (Adam "Mr. Movie" Hakari)

Comedian John Leguizamo is The Pest, a manic Miami con man who's about to become a hunter's human prey. And if you're going to be a target, it's best to be a moving target, as The Pest proves in this hilarious high-speed hunt that careens from a new-Nazi's private island to the party-all-the-time streets of Miami's South Beach. Crass, crude and endlessly inventive, The Pest assumes a wild variety of ethnic identities as he evades his predator with attitude intact. A totally one-of-a-kind movie, The Pest is a "rollicking, rude and politically incorrect comedy that's a non-stop laugh riot! 3 1/2 Stars"--Bill Hoffman, New York Post (From the back cover)
